First, I saw the Eurobureaucrats adding another 12 or so names to a list of 20 or so (sorry, I was not paying attention) names which are going to be on the sanctions list. The US did something similar yesterday.
a) a bigger share of investment in Russia coming from Russian banks,b) more companies incorporated in Russiac) a way to prevent Russian officials from having any assets abroad.
Amazing!! Here are all these pompous "democrats" signing a document with representatives of an armed revolutionary regime which has exactly zero legitimacy.
"I have to be honest and make the following confession (he bows his head): yes, these guys were the "polite armed men in green" that were seen in Crimea! And their last names are kinda weird ~ Kovalchuk, Rotenberg, Timchenko ~ typical Moskals!". Putin can be very funny when he wants and this topic clearly makes him laugh.
Does the White House not know that Russia holds US$164 billion in US Treasury Securities?.That Russia could simply shut down the northern evacuation route for US forces in Afghanistan?.The millions of dollars in US and EU investment in Russia (US$300,1 billion) could also be seized?.That Russia can shut down the "northern route" to US ships or stop cooperating on security and terrorism issues? .
The US and EU remind me of a toddler playing with a hand grenade: either it is a very boring toy and nothing happens, or it works, but then you are dead.Western international diplomacy as a dead baby joke ~ how pathetic....
