MOSCOW (Worthy News)– Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a two-pronged attack against the U.S., Ukraine, and any European ally who chooses to become involved by mustering troops and munitions on the Ukrainian border, and issuing economic sanctions of their own that will be much stronger and more consequential to the U.S. than what President Obama has implemented so far, the Examiner reported.
Mykhailo Koval, deputy head of Ukraine’s National Defense and Security Council, announced that Russia had moved upwards of 33000 troops and 160 tanks to the Eastern border and was fully preparing for an offensive assault in the near future in support of Russian rebels fighting in the region. In addition to this, part of Russia's new sanctions against the West will hit soundly in the chest of Washington's policies for the Middle East by securing a new oil and trade agreement with Iran, leaving the U.S. little choice but to pull back from their attempts to intimidate the Middle Eastern power since they are no longer isolated without allies. — Source
Economic Sanctions Coming
We have repeatedly spoken about the illegitimacy and groundlessness of the US sanctions against Russia. Washington will gain nothing from such decisions except for further complication of Russian-American relations and the creation of an unfavorable atmosphere in international affairs, where the cooperation between our countries often plays a key role.
One gets the impression that the U.S. sanctions pressure, transformed now at sectoral level, has one goal – to get even with us for an independent and uncomfortable for Washington politics. Please also note the obvious elements of unscrupulous trade and economic competition in the U.S. actions.
The losses that Washington will sustain from such a destructive and myopic policy will be very tangible. – Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Russian Federation
