In the US Congress approved the draft tightening anti-Russian sanctions

46
The bill, which provides for a tightening of anti-Russian sanctions, was approved by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Congress, reports RIA News.




“The Committee on International Affairs has adopted a draft law on stability and democracy in Ukraine (Stability and Democracy (STAND) for Ukraine Act), which provides assistance to Ukraine in carrying out democratic reforms,” the committee’s website says.

The authors of the project proposed to strictly link the powers of the US President in lifting restrictions from Russia with the status of the Crimea. That is, it is assumed that the American leader will be able to lift the sanctions only in 2-s 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."

However, the State Department did not support the document on the following grounds: “the idea of ​​formal codification of sanctions will reduce the flexibility in using them to restore the sovereignty of Ukraine, in cooperation with the EU”.

At the same time, the White House constantly states that the lifting of sanctions is almost entirely dependent on the implementation of the Minsk agreements by Russia. In Moscow, such conditions are called absurd, since Russia is not the subject of these agreements.

        They didn’t understand what kind of podlyan they had made for themselves - they just had to wait for a truly democratically elected government to appear in Ukraine.

      Strange sanctions, more likely noodles for the public, because the turnover with amers only increases, with the geyropa decreases ... Or did I overslept something ????

        They didn’t oversleep or anything strange. Sanctions are imposed for the EU. The punishment for not signing is enslaving for Europe, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Agreement.

      it is not clear what else will be "toughened".
      I can imagine how to tighten sanctions if we also take away Donbas, they scold Russia so, and it will be through a word of mate ...

    Sanctions have always existed. And much tougher. This didn’t particularly bother anyone - when they need them, they bypass these sanctions by one or two. By the way, we do too. Therefore, let them shove them in ... and enjoy.

    Following the logic of the State Department, Crimea is not a territory of Russia (not recognized by anyone), therefore it has nothing to do with the conditions of Minsk-2. The circle is round, I know from childhood.

    Or everything is being done right on the part of Russia, or they gave a weak spot somewhere! Kerry cannot just come with Nuland (the main Maidan people) to agree and at the same time, Congress begins to consider tougher sanctions.
    And we have an outlet, - finally, the situation in Donbass has become more often mentioned in the Russian news, otherwise for almost a year, almost nothing - "a hedgehog in the fog."

    We must break all ties with the United States. Leave only humanitarian contacts, and even if it will be beneficial to us. Stop trading with them rocket engines, small arms, minerals. How much can they go on occasion and listen to their nonsense? And do not return the money to them, which were taken as loans. All, alles, what is called! Come on, USA, bye!
    Bold American ambassador to bring surveillance to the point of insanity, and all members of his embassy. Goodbye America!

      They themselves do not know what they want: some impose sanctions, others immediately fly to the Kremlin. Well, why not understand! They will impose sanctions, and then fly to Moscow, to find out - what is the panic of the Russians? And then flew in, looked, and we laugh. Fly back to the states, come up with sanctions again, again fly to Moscow, and there, the same thing. It’s just that the Americans are not aware, they can’t understand in any way that they cannot kill Russian sanctions! fool laughing

    Do these people understand ... (with their chicken eyes, what gentlemen they are!) That our economy is getting used to sanctions and learning to bypass them. The news of the new sanctions does not bother me much. BUT. I recalled a recent dispute between commentators, a certain "professor" from Israel, judging by the awkwardness of the letter, most likely a professor of "sour cabbage soup". and some of our members of the forum, who bitterly perceived the arrogance and lies around the troubles of Ukraine. He began to threaten members of the forum of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation about, as he considers, calls for unleashing an aggressive war. So that's it. Anyone who does not recognize the properly formalized legality of the reunification of Crimea with Russia, then encroaches on its territorial integrity, this can also be found in the article. Why not put Poroshenko on the wanted list? American congressmen and others, and Ukrainian guest workers entering Crimea. force to confirm one hundred Crimea is Russian. or not to let. And then they parted here, you know!

    The Americans approved the sanctions before they were approved by Europe. Europe itself would not have dared to introduce them without the order of Uncle Sam (they say very bad, this uncle).

    And why is Russia also not loudly declaring retaliatory sanctions against the United States? - Very useful, at least for propaganda purposes! “Or are we always to blame for the amers ?!”
