It is noted that the restrictive measures which were to expire in March, connected with the situation around Ukraine.
President Barack Obama on Friday extended for one year sanctions imposed on Russia in March 2014 because of the situation in Crimea and Ukraine.
We are talking about the extension of the decree of the President USA room 13660, issued on March 6, 2014, which is then supplemented by other decrees that expanded sanctions against Russian individuals and organizations.
“The actions and policies that are answered by this decree, continue to pose unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the USA”, — stated in the order of the outgoing President.
The sanctions provided for in the decree of 2014, ended March 6, and Obama was required to notify Congress about the decision to extend the validity of the document, which was adopted four decrees that extended the sanctions.
In a letter to leaders of both chambers of Congress, the President listed what continues to constitute a threat to the United States.
“The actions and policies of persons who undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty and territorial integrity; contributing to the misappropriation of assets, as well as the actions and policies of the government of the Russian Federation, including its deliberate annexation of Crimea and use of force in Ukraine”, — said in a letter to Obama.
