The British Parliament approved the tightening of the sanctions regime against Russia

26

The UK has expanded the list of Russian individuals and legal entities against which sanctions can be imposed. The relevant document was adopted by the country's parliament.


On Thursday, British parliamentarians approved amendments to the law on sanctions against Russia, allowing to significantly expand the range of individuals and companies subject to sanctions. The decision was made quickly, no sooner had the document been submitted than it had already been approved and the new anti-Russian sanctions regime came into force.

Thus, the British can now impose sanctions not only against those who, in their opinion, "destabilize" Ukraine, as the law said, but against a much wider range of Russians. Now it is allowed to impose sanctions against individuals and companies of strategic and economic importance to Russia, regardless of whether they are related to Ukraine or not. True, there is a caveat: sanctions are not introduced automatically, but only in the event of an aggravation of the situation.

But in the United States they can not decide on a new package of sanctions against Russia, Congress "has reached a dead end." American lawmakers cannot decide whether or not to impose sanctions against Nord Stream 2, as well as the Russian banking system, in the event of an escalation of the conflict in Ukraine. As Senator Bob Menendez, the author of the draft anti-Russian sanctions, said, the congressmen could not agree in any way, so they moved on to discussing "other possibilities."

In addition, there is another issue on which there are heated debates. The fact is that the Democrats in power today propose imposing sanctions only after the invasion of Ukraine, while the Republicans insist on preventive measures. The package under consideration provides for the imposition of sanctions against Russia's public debt, the banking sector and the country's leadership.

    Taking into account the lack of intelligence and common sense of the chicken that flew to Lavrov, I won’t be surprised if the impudent people in their parliament are also not very smart, and they will impose sanctions against Chuguev for accepting Voronezh into their composition wassat And it’s easier with the Yankees - Russia needs to recognize the Congress and the US Senate as terrorist organizations, and let the “Kremlin infantryman” with his pocket army go to clean them up ...

        But they don’t touch his dad, he cuts coupons from Alushta, until 2014 he invested $ 200 million in the port of Alushta and the suburbs. Plus Novaya Gazeta, so we have something to confiscate, this one is in line if anything. Especially Novaya Gazeta and hand over her Kadyrov.

    And you can also deprive Russian officials and their relatives of European citizenship. Maybe they will start working for their country, knowing that they won’t be able to dump it.

      Who needs it and why?

      Western countries that will suddenly lose their best citizens? Who bring in billions of money and spend it there, to pay for tuition at Harvard and invest in luxury real estate. Each such citizen pays taxes like 1000 local beggars

      Or the officials themselves?

            But because even according to Rosstat, half of them do not go to the polls, and how many really do. And from the minority that walks, the majority supports it. I don’t understand, for 31 years everything has been going according to one scenario, and the people stubbornly do not go, well, or support.

      Do they think that their sanctions somehow affect the software for the flight mission of our missiles? I hope Shoigu today will have the opportunity to bring this point of view with the Anglo-Saxons.

      Yes, it looks like they wore these masks only during WWII, when their henchman "Adolf the Possessed" began to bomb Britain.

    True, there is a caveat: sanctions are not imposed automatically, but only in the event of an aggravation of the situation.

    So I can’t remember what was so acute that forced the Russian Federation to supply GB with liquefied gas:
    Russia shipped 29 shipments of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the UK in 2021, according to the agency. This is almost a third more than in 2020, when Russia supplied 22 consignments of gas.

    I don’t even know what to think about 320 tons of gold ...
    Pure scam with elements of satire and comedy...

      In addition to gold, in 2021, 72 billion dollars left the Russian Federation, and in January 2022 already 13 billion, so the English and Amer sanctions are rather a blessing.

    What remains after the failed trip of the British Foreign Minister, when the whole world saw not only the stupid obstinacy, but also the dense illiteracy of this lady. Only sanctions against Russia can save the face of British diplomacy. Full ducks. Will we continue to play real diplomacy with them, or will we still respond with all the "proletarian hatred"?

    Why is the visit a failure? She wrote that she was not going to negotiate, but to present an ultimatum. I came and read everything. Parliament voted in favor of sanctions. Where is the failure? The failure of Russia is complete. Who allowed this lady into Russia to listen to her speeches? Why humiliate yourself by allowing this? The fact that she does not know the regions of Russia? But who cares about certain regions? Cowardly politics, betrayal, theft. That's all you can. I believe that her visit was pushed through by the aligarhs. So how will Russia respond to the sanctions? And even more money will be taken to England. On this site, you are the winners of everyone, always and everywhere.
