The US is preparing a new package of anti-Russian sanctions. The House of Representatives of the US Congress already gave its approval. Next, the document will be considered by the Senate. Then the bill will arrive for the signature of President Trump. The Chairman of the State Duma Committee on the international affairs Leonid Slutsky, commenting on the decision of the US, already called these sanctions “the most large-scale and complex since 2014”.
The former speaker of the parliament of Novorossiya Oleg Tsarev told NSN that the impossibility to communicate on social networks very much upsets him.
“It is difficult to even call troubling the sanctions in the form of restricting departures. More troubling for me is the restrictions on Facebook, there I can’t create an account with my name – I had 300,000 of my friends and readers. The account was deleted without warning and justification,” said the politician to NSN.
For the rest, the news about the strengthening of sanctions didn’t upset him at all, because it doesn’t infringe on the personal interests of Tsarev.
“I don’t travel while such things are going on in Ukraine. I am in Crimea, these sanctions concern me personally, and not my family, but my wife isn’t going to go anywhere. So for me it is not such a big problem,” admitted Tsarev.
Earlier, in a conversation with NSN, the first deputy chairman of the committee of the Federation Council on the international affairs Vladimir Dzhabarov also didn’t see a personal threat in the strengthening of sanctions against Russia by the US Congress.
Brussels sharply responded to the decision of the US to introduce more strict economic restrictions on Moscow. The European Union intends to limit the access of American companies to the credits of European banks.
