Thanks Barack, Russia Considering Retaliation After Obama’s Big Insult!
I really hope that with the incoming administration we can sit down at the table with Russia and smooth over the fact that the last couple of weeks has essentially been a whining baby throwing a tantrum because he didn’t get his way.
Not long ago it was announced that the Obama administration was planning sanctions on Russia for “interfering” in the presidential election. Now, Russia is saying it will retaliate against the U.S.
Here we go…
BREAKING: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman says Moscow regrets new U.S. sanctions, will consider retaliatory measures. — The Associated Press (@AP) December 29, 2016 From The Hill: Moscow is considering retaliatory measures against the U.S. following the announcement of new sanctions on Russia, an official said Thursday.
Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, said that the new sanctions are an example of President Obama’s “unpredictable” and “aggressive foreign policy,” according to the AP. He also claimed the new measures are aimed at trying to “deal a blow to the foreign policy plans” of President-elect Donald trump.
“Such steps of the U.S. administration that has three weeks left to work are aimed at two things: to further harm Russian-American ties, which are at a low point as it is, as well as, obviously, deal a blow on the foreign policy plans of the incoming administration of the president-elect,” Peskov said.
