US sanctions against Putin's environment will force the Russian Federation to withdraw from the Donbas - Klimkin

on Sat Dec 16, 2017 11:24 am
US sanctions against Putin's environment will force the Russian Federation to withdraw from the Donbas - Klimkin

The head of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine, Pavlo Klimkin, said that the release of the US sanction list from the president's envoy, Vladimir Putin, expected in February, could force Russia to withdraw from the Donbas and agree to the introduction of peacekeepers

It is reported by Interfax-Ukraine.

"A list of not only Russian assets will be published, but I understand that the assets of many Russian oligarchs behind the Russian regime, and I believe that this will be a very powerful impetus for Russia to follow the logic of a real mandate in the Donbass - the things we are talking about is the return of Donbas to Ukraine, the return of Donbass to normal life and our legal field, "the minister emphasized.

"For this, the formula is very simple - I announced it today - this means that Russia is leaving the occupied districts of the Donbas, and the international contingent comes in" - said Klimkin.

As you know, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said that Washington does not accept the military invasion of Russia into Ukraine and will not lift sanctions from Moscow until the full restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity.

Russia Criticizes EU Decision To Extend Ukraine-Related Sanctions

Russia Criticizes EU Decision To Extend Ukraine-Related Sanctions

Russia has hit back at a decision by leaders of the European Union to extend for another six months the economic sanctions imposed on Moscow over its “destabilizing” actions in Ukraine.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on December 15 described the sanctions as “illegal and unjust” and said Russia “did not consider such decisions beneficial to either EU member states or the Russian Federation.”

"Despite this, we, of course, are still set on improving relations with Brussels, which currently leave something to be desired," he added.

EU leaders on December 14 agreed at a Brussels summit to extend the sanctions against Russia for six months, until July 30, 2018.

The EU, along with the United States, has hit Moscow with sanctions over its annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region in March 2014 and for its support for separatists in eastern Ukraine in a conflict that has killed more than 10,300 people since its start in April 2014.

When imposing the sanctions, the EU said they were “in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and deliberate destabilization of a neighboring sovereign country.”

Russia denies interfering in Ukraine's internal affairs, despite compelling evidence that Moscow has provided military, economic, and political support to separatists fighting against Kyiv.................

More than two million violations and 3058 dead, - Zhukov told about traffic accident statistics since the beginning of the year

Since the beginning of 2017, more than 146,000 road accidents occurred in Ukraine, in which more than 3,000 people died.

"During the 11 months of 2017 there were 146,000 road accidents, of which 24 thousand were injured, 3058 of our citizens died... Only this year, the police detected and recorded more than 2 million violations, gross violations," he said.

Zhukov added that most of the causes of accidents were violations of the PDA and driving in a drunken state.

"The main reasons are exceeding the maximum permitted speed, a violation of the rules of maneuvering, violation of the rules of crossing the intersection, non-compliance with the distance, and driving the vehicle in a state of intoxication, which suggests that we have insufficient legislation in the field of road safety We do not have any fixations of violations of the SDA, "he stated.

Russia's unexpected decision regarding its observers in the Donbas

Russia intends to withdraw its officers from the Joint Monitoring and Coordination Center for the issues of ceasefire and stabilization of the line of delimitation of the parties (SCCC) from the territory of Ukraine .

This is stated in the report of the OSCE's SMM.

"On December 14, a representative of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the Joint Control and Coordination Center (SCCC) at the headquarters of the SCCC, located in the government controlled city of Soledar (79 km north of Donetsk), handed over to SMM a letter from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation stating that The Russian Federation is going to withdraw from the territory of Ukraine officers of its Armed Forces from the SCCC, "the mission statement noted.

Let's remind, recently the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov has declared, that the Russian party can stop work in the CEC because Ukrainian officers ostensibly put their Russian colleagues in unfeasible conditions.

Russia made a loud accusation against the US on the war in Syria

The United States creates the so-called "New Syrian Army" to fight the Bashar Assad regime.

This is reported by the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Confederated Parties in Syria with reference to refugees, reports Interfax.

It is noted that US instructors allegedly create a "New Syrian Army" in a refugee camp in the province of El-Hasek in Syria, whose framework will consist of 400 ID fighters who were able to leave Rakka with support from the Americans in October.

"The American instructors, according to refugees who returned to their homes, announced that after the completion of the training, the created formation would be thrown to sub-Syria to fight the Syrian government forces," the statement said in a statement.

As reported by the "Apostrophe", in the sky over Syria, the Russian military aircraft Suk-25 made a dangerous convergence with the F-22 US Air Force , forcing the American pilot to make an aggressive maneuver.
