The US needs not only to maintain the sanctions.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul is convinced that it is necessary to introduce new sanctions against Russia for continuing to destabilize the situation in the Donbas.
About this he wrote in his column on the website of the newspaper The Washington Post.
“The continuing illegal activities of the Russian Federation should be punished with new sanctions. For example, every day to support Russian separatist war in the East of Ukraine should be understood as its new illegal action”, – he said.
Mike McFaul said that the U.S. must not only maintain sanctions, but also to adopt a schedule to toughen them, because in recent years Russia has become “the world’s biggest threat to the sovereignty of other Nations.” The American diplomat mentioned the invasion of Russia into Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014, participation in a military operation in Syria, the impact on the U.S. presidential election and the assassination of ex-intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in the UK.
“This is not a normal foreign policy tool. It is a criminal offence For crimes should be punished. New economic sanctions – a gross but necessary tools of punishment for illegal behavior of Russia”, – said McFaul.
