The State Department does not hide the joy about the extension of the EU sanctions against the Republic of Crimea

The United States welcomes the EU’s decision to extend the sanctions against the Crimea and assure that the US restrictions will remain in force until the complete “cessation of the occupation” of the peninsula, reports RIA News statement by State Department representative John Kirby.


The State Department does not hide the joy about the extension of the EU sanctions against the Republic of Crimea


“We welcome the EU’s decision to extend sanctions in response to the Russian annexation of Crimea. Our own sanctions will remain in force as long as the occupation continues, "
said Kirby.

At the same time, he repeated the position of his department: "Crimea is and always remains part of Ukraine."

When asked whether John Kerry really was going to visit Kiev soon, Kirby replied: "I have nothing about the schedule of the Secretary of State at the moment."

Recall, yesterday, the EU Council extended the sanctions against the Crimea to 23 June 2017.

      Judging by the number of sanctions against Crimea and Crimeans, Crimea annexed Russia, and not vice versa. laughing laughing

      Have you been to Crimea? The prices are horrible! The military and police are happy. They took the Russian oath. The administration is happy. Hooray! Crimea is ours! Fly from Surgut to Crimea for this money? Yes, I could fly to Turkey 2 times. All come off in full! Crimea was not cheap even under the USSR, but turning Crimea into Krasnodar Territory with its "gadgets" is not worth it!

        You think politically! (C)
        You have correctly pointed out a drawback: overpriced prices for flights by Russian airlines and high prices at our resorts.
        But then what? Nothing but whining. "Shura, this is not our method!" (C)
        From St. Petersburg and Moscow, flights to Crimea are cheap. If expensive from Surgut - organize a check at local airlines for collusion and multipolization. It is not difficult to do for an ordinary citizen. And prices in Crimea are comparable with Surgut prices.
        Work a little for the good of yourself - and it will become better. So it will be more true!

UTair + Aeroflot ticket from Surgut to Simferopol 42 798 p. How is it? I do not like it, go to Altai, but Siberia is already higher than my throat. In Krasnodar, a flea market, not beaches! Turkey is fine with Egypt. But all on a scoop have a rest.

        My children and grandchildren are now resting in the Crimea, we communicate on Skype daily. We saw many attractions, i.e. they saw with their own eyes what they had only read about before. In addition, they are very pleased with the rest on the sea, friendly communication with the locals, and there is no need to scare the prices, we have them even higher.

    Still, this means that Europe has not yet crawled out from under the rule of the Amers. And something tells that it won't crawl out without the help of Russia. But, is it necessary for Russia to save Europe once again? Anyway, after a certain number of years the "grateful" Europeans will ALL forget and will say that "Russia is the aggressor" and that "we occupied them".

        Germany has always been an enemy of the Russians. In vain we are looking for a common language with them. So many troubles of Russia did not bring any country. We did not have such fierce conflicts with France, but they are not friends with us either.

        So it is necessary to help the cowboys of the Texas region to gain independence, as the Americans "help" our regions, the Urals are the same for so many troublemakers. Send experienced instructors, ideologists, guerrilla warfare specialists, and the media to Texas and California to focus on the numerous and constant violations of the rights of the indigenous people of Texas and California by the authorities, and then, you see, it will come to the supply of weapons to the freedom fighters. Mexico and Guatemala with Cuba, our missile defense systems, against the Somali pirates, of course.

    From these sanctions, worst of all is Europe.
    We have almost no trade with the states, but there are many between Europe and the states. The weaker Europe is, the more obedient it is to the states. They remind Ukrainians, they drove themselves into the pit with irregularities and stupidity, and with shouts about false slogans they themselves begin to worsen their lives.

      The best sanction on the part of Russia is the refusal of supplies of energy and other minerals to the geyropu. It is necessary to get off the oil needle vigorously and at the right moment just shut off the valve. Europeans will be forced to buy gas at a double or even triple price, their economy will lose their competitiveness and they will finally fall under the United States and Qatar.

    The State Department does not hide the joy about the extension of the EU sanctions against the Republic of Crimea

    In Russia, they do not hide the joy that the State Department could not create a base in Sevastopol.

      Yes, they all went on an erotic journey! Farmers road! For kickbacks to shoot bureaucrats! What GDP does not see what is happening? In addition to Moscow, there is also Russia! I have parmesan, but everyone needs to jump and work from an oil needle! Are you planning to hand out land in the Far East? There was Yin, married Ivanova, ruined the whole earth with chemistry! Cool? No way!

    The topic is not new, but the Europeans, although not in large numbers, but still go on vacation in the Crimea, sanctions were invented mainly for bureaucrats of all kinds.

    Yes, it’s okay, except for a coefficient of 2-5 to the prices for holidays in Crimea especially for employees of the US State Department. Everything has its time. Tour operators of Crimea remember everything and are waiting for you with open arms.

    or MTS?

    Yes, MTS is present in CRIMEA, television and the Internet are also there, but there are not enough banks yet, but nothing and the rest will catch up and there is no need to breed dampness.

    Our own sanctions will remain in force as long as the occupation continues, ”

    The "occupation" will continue indefinitely, Mr. Kirby.

    Some comments are disgusting to read. Sheer whining: this is not so, this is not it, the government is bad, everything is bad ... These couch economists and politicians, military commanders and strategists! Moscow wasn’t built right away. And here in two years they are trying to get to paradise! Many Crimeans understand that if they stayed in Ukraine, they would have been full of kirdyk! And do not give a shit about real citizens on sanctions and difficulties. We are Russians since the time of Ivan the Terrible. We live in constant problems. Dregs are all! There is peace on the peninsula, there is capital protection against attacks by potential enemies, and this is now the main thing. And not MTS, Beeline and other civilian props ...
