The State Department does not support the bill submitted to the US Congress, which names the specific conditions necessary for the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions, reports RIA News Statement by State Department Sanctions Coordinator Daniel Fried.


In the State Department criticized the new bill on the conditions for the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions


In late April, the “Stability and Democracy Act for Ukraine” was submitted for discussion by congressmen. The bill proposes to strictly link the powers of the President of the United States in the lifting of sanctions against Russia with the status of the Crimea.

“If the document is approved, the head of the United States will be able to cancel measures against Moscow only in two cases: after confirming the restoration of Ukraine’s sovereignty over the Crimea or if it is proved that the decision on the status of the peninsula was taken under international control and recognized as a democratically elected Ukrainian government”- explains the publication.

The State Department did not like the idea of ​​a formal codification of sanctions. “This will reduce our flexibility in using sanctions to restore Ukraine’s sovereignty, in cooperation with the EU,” Fried said.

“I don’t doubt that the sponsors (of the draft) want to help Ukraine, but I’m not sure that it (the draft) will fulfill its mission,” he said.

According to him, one of the US firms have already "complained about billions in losses from sanctions against Russia." “Obviously, the losses will be much greater,” said Fried.

"Sanctions, as a rule, are expensive," the diplomat added, adding that "Europe suffers much more from sanctions."

    it is necessary to have time to learn to develop the country without foreign borrowing before lifting the sanctions. To establish import substitution not in words, but in reality. To evict all the liberals to the west, where they are so sweet. And only then can they cancel their sanctions or not, it will no longer matter.

      If we give back the Khokhlam to the back, it can be canceled. Or they’ll come up with some kind of inim, such as joint control of Crimea between Russia and Ukraine. Both the one and the other option are categorically not acceptable for our government - the people will not understand. So, do not worry, sanctions are a long time.

        Where do we start? Maybe with Kudrin? The rest of the demogop are air shakers with an insignificant rating. And they have very little influence on the development of the country. But they are an excellent lightning rod so that you can point your finger at it. But Kudrin, Chubais will not leave anywhere. They are in office and they are not drowning, not because of r, but because they will not allow anyone to encroach on the conquests of August91 and October93. That would be disastrous for the country.

        It's useless. You can't feed a wolf for life. And in general, it is necessary to throw out thoughts about "appeasing" the Americans. All concessions are perceived as weakness and uncertainty. We have already retreated so much. And let them pay for "democracy and stability of Ukraine" themselves. They promised there, sang in their ears, let them pay for Poroshenko's "stability".

        Strong move. Act according to the "rule of paradox". Only here error-free work is needed at all "upper" levels, which is unlikely. After all, it will be necessary to quickly, one step ahead of "our partners" to make extraordinary decisions that constantly baffle them. And the strategy is beautiful.

      I think that we can take our time, the sanctions are unlikely to be lifted in the foreseeable future. I think Russia needs to understand this and develop its economy regardless of "partners" and sanctions.

      to complete import substitution - at least it needs to be started. issues not only in food but also in industry. Yes, we are building bridges, but I sent the pensioners' iPhone in the Crimea away. and VAZ, as it used Chinese spare parts, uses it and manages to be in deep financial support. in fact, as it was before - one with a bipod and seven with a spoon so nothing has changed. Electronics - Made up, household goods are the same. Yes, the military gets new equipment, but whoever collects them has lost touch with inflation up to a third of their salary and many of the work itself. it is clear that sagging to the west is impossible, but sagging to our officials is a shame.

    Such a law leads to an “eternal” sanction status. Europe intends to recognize Crimea as Russian and lift the sanctions, and Matrasia in this situation will be "in a raskoryaku". Sanctions striped eared us clearly will not ruin, and we will work against mattress anyway.

      the "eternal" status of sanctions

      There is nothing eternal. And the United States is not eternal, and their hegemonic status is even more so. The world rests on the fear that if the dollar collapses (read USA) then there will be chaos and confusion, but every day the need arises to replace the Anglo-Saxon world order.

    So the USSR and Russia have always lived under sanctions. Any amendments, boycott of the gas pipeline in the 70-80s, problems with pipes for it and others, etc. It’s time to get used to this situation. So let them wipe off with their sanctions!

    I think that we will definitely be able to do all this. For time for it is plus infinity. Not then the Americans introduced these sanctions in order to immediately cancel them. Remember the broom amendment and everything will be clear. So do not pay attention to these carrots, for donkeys they are. All Amer’s promises are worthless on market day. But it is necessary to establish an independent economy. Then these sanctions will be so for a laugh.

    Sanctions should be lifted only in the event of a reversal of the Moon with the reverse side to the Earth! Then Crimea will become Ukrainian.

    The State Department does not read newspapers. Sanctions on Crimea are eternal, because it is Russian land. The topic - what else is the State Department concerned about a bit overwhelmed with, nothing exceptionally worried came up with anything new. Maybe well them?

    The USA does not play a primary role for us. Europe is much more important for us. And since Europe is slowly becoming a reproach, the states want to leave at least the appearance of control over the situation. Most likely, state sanctions will be lifted simultaneously with Europe. It would be silly to look if Europe lifts sanctions and states do not

    The fact is that after the adoption of "bills", it is quite difficult to cancel them later, and the flexibility of manipulation is lost. The State Department doesn't want to miss this opportunity.

    “Sanctions are usually expensive,” the diplomat added, adding that “Europe is much more affected by sanctions.”

    It makes no sense to repeat about "Insight" again, especially if it is justified by the lack of finances, and not by the presence of the brain.
    In addition, the sanctions are unlikely to be lifted, despite the words of some individuals.

    AND THIS IS PERFECT !!! The whole country must work to ensure that the sanctions are extended and "toughened"! You can even write a petition to the scoundrels from the Russian people, asking them not to lift the sanctions.

    There is no need to remove the sanctions. We can say "just started to live in peace."
    Sanctions do not interfere with Russia, they only help to revive.

    Sanctions do not apply to ordinary people — they are for all Rotenbergs and other bureaucrats — they will not be allowed to do good acquired through overwork. The longer they are, the faster industry and agriculture will rise

    No gentlemen, comrades, whatever you want, but I support the State Department. Sanctions against us do not need to be lifted, it’s like Oyropa howls, under the 100 billion green losses. It is still necessary to cut off oxygen with RD-180 engines striped to the heap and many NASA programs will almost cover them with a copper basin.
