Russia Signals Sanctions On Canada's Freeland Can Only Be Lifted Reciprocally

Russia Signals Sanctions On Canada's Freeland Can Only Be Lifted Reciprocally

Russia has signaled that it will only remove newly appointed Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland from its sanctions list on a reciprocal basis.

Russian news agencies cited an unidentified Russian Foreign Ministry official as saying on January 11 that Freeland has been on a list of Canadians subject to sanctions, which includes a travel ban, since 2014.

Moscow introduced the sanctions list after many Western countries, including Canada, imposed targeted sanctions against Russian officials over Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.

"The issue of removing her from the response sanctions is an issue of reciprocity and the mirror principle," the Foreign Ministry official said. "The fact that she is blacklisted will not impede contacts with Russian officials at international forums."

Freeland, a former journalist who is of Ukrainian descent, has been a harsh critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

After Moscow imposed sanctions on her, Freeland posted on Twitter that she considered it "an honor to be on Putin’s sanction list."

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed Freeland as foreign minister on January 10............

Compromise with Russia out of question for Ukraine

Post by Admin on Wed Jan 11, 2017 7:32 am

Compromise with Russia out of question for Ukraine



All the talk about the likely compromise with Russia is part of a plan to liquidate Ukraine’s sovereignty. A compromise can be offered either by open Russia’s agents or pipe-dreamers who do not realize Kremlin’s true intentions, Vitali Portnykov, a renowned political expert told Espreso TV Jan. 11.

The debate about a compromise with Russia was started by tycoon Viktor Pinchuk and ex-diplomat Vasyl Filipchuk against the allegations that Donald Trump might also be thinking about it.

Can Ukraine exist as a neutral state [one of Pinchuk’s proposals]? It should be recalled that Ukraine emerged in 1991 as a neutral non-affiliated state. Its neutrality was confirmed by the Yanukovych cabinet in 2005.

Still, this did not stop Russia from launching a war in Donbas and grabbing Crimea.

The Baltic states are NATO members. That is why Putin attacked Ukraine, because Ukraine is not a NATO member. 

Putin doesn’t need Crimea or Donbas. These territories are millstones for the Russian dictator. At the same time, they are the key to conquer Ukraine.

It can be a military conquest with the help of tanks and bombs. Or it can be a political conquest, when Putin implants a government in Kyiv that will dismantle Ukrainian statehood. 

Russia’s fifth column agents are in abundance both in Ukraine and in the West. Such agents must be red-flagged and wasted. I can offer no other recipe for retaining the sovereignty of Ukraine,” Vitali Plotnykov says.

Rex Tillerson is setting out his case to be Donald Trump’s secretary of state with a call for the US to chart a new relationship with Russia that takes into account Moscow’s interests and ambitions — even as he labels the country a “danger” that needs to be held to account for its actions.

In prepared remarks for his Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday, one of the most highly charged events in Washington ahead of Mr Trump’s inauguration next week, the former Exxon chief is also set to call for a tough US approach on China and an unambiguous drive against radical Islam.

The comments, obtained by the Washington Post, highlight Mr Tillerson’s approach in dealing with criticism that both he and Mr Trump may be too close to Russian president Vladimir Putin for the comfort of leading Democrats and Republicans.

“[We] need an open and frank dialogue with Russia regarding its ambitions, so that we know how to chart our own course,” Mr Tillerson will say, according to the Post’s reporting. “Where co-operation with Russia based on common interests is possible, such as reducing the global threat of terrorism, we ought to explore these options.”

But he added: “Russia must know that we will be accountable to our commitments and those of our allies, and that Russia must be held to account for its actions.”

On Wednesday, Mr Trump, who has resisted intelligence agencies’ conclusions that the Kremlin sought to aid his election, tweeted that he had “nothing to do with Russia”, as he elaborated on his denial of unsubstantiated claims that Moscow held compromising material on him..............
