US Ready To Sanction Russia Because Of Poisoning!

///

The relations between The United States of America and Russia are always up and down. As soon as they get better, things take a big turn for the worse not that long after. Well, that is exactly what is going to happen again after this move that The States are about to make.

The red, white and blue are planning on imposing new sanctions on Russia since they had found out that Moscow is the one that is behind the poisoning a former Russian spy and his daughter. The poisoning happened in March this year, on the British soil.

It means that the Russians straight up broke the law since they used a lethal substance against the spy and his daughter, at least according to the State Department.

Back in March, Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yuila were found unconscious on the bench in Salisbury, a small British town. Novichok was the name of the substance that was used in order to make them sick. It’s a nerve agent that was developed during the Soviet-era. Luckily, they survived.

Of course, the Brits are going to welcome these sanctions by the United States of America. Even though Russia hasn’t made an official comment about this move that the US is making, the fact of the matter is that they have already denied any involvement in the poisoning of their former spy and his daughter.

Kremlin also stated that they had no involvement in the poisoning near Salisbury just a couple of months ago when a couple from The Great Britan was sickened – with one person surviving and one dying.

It has been said that the couple also picked up the bottle that had Novichok in it, the same lethal stuff that put Skripal’s in big trouble.

Trump did state that “nobody has been tougher on Russia” than The States, but this is a move that they have to make, not a choice of theirs.

Trump Sanctions Against Iran – Want’s Other Countries To Stop Doing Business With Tehran

/

New sanctions that President Trump set on Iran are described by POTUS himself as “the most biting sanctions ever imposed.” Also, he warned other countries that they would need to choose between Washington and Tehran in terms of business.

Obama administration lifted sanctions after they, backed up by the US allies, signed a nuclear deal with the Middle East country in 2015 that derailed Iran’s nuclear weapons program. A new set of measures against the regime in Tehran bring limitations on transactions that are done in U.S. dollars, but also the automotive industry. Among other sectors, they will target metal trade, including gold, and commercial plane purchase.

Not long after these moves by President Trump, his Iranian colleague, Hassan Rouhani stated on Monday: “If someone has knife in the hand and seeks talks, he should first put the knife in his pocket.” He also added that there are no pre-conditions from Tehran for the talks between the two countries and that America only needs to pay for “intervention in Iran.”

“If the U.S. government is ready to negotiate about paying compensation to the Iranian nation from 1953 until now,” Rouhani stated. “The U.S owes the Iranian nation for its intervention in Iran.”

It looks like Iranian president is talking about mission supported by CIA that had the goal to overthrow Iran’s prime minister and return shah in 1953. This is something we could hear from many of his predecessors and state officials.

The sanctions were restored so to limit the Tehran’s possibility to finance “terrorists, dictators, proxy militias, and the regime’s own cronies,” according to a senior administration official. If the situation doesn’t improve the new set of measures will be implemented on Nov. 4, when the banking sector and oil industry will be targeted.

Iran is looking towards other countries with which they could do their business and Rouhani stated how Russia and China could step in when it comes to oil trade if further U.S. sanctions are imposed. On the other hand, President Trump, who exited the Iran deal, stated how he is ready to talk with Tehran.
