The British Empire of Canada Imposing Sanctions On Russia, of which they can not back up, unless the U.S. Military engages Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin has threatened Canada with “retaliation” over their quietly imposed sanctions imposed against Russian citizens.

 New sanctions were passed on Nov. 28th by the Canadian government which will see various Russian nationals living in Canada having their assets frozen and their business dealings stopped. The harsh sanctions comes in response to the annexation of Crimea and Moscow’s ongoing support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin threatens Canada over Russia sanctions

Cbc.ca reports:

 

There are 15 individuals named in the regulation, which was to be formally posted Thursday in the Canada Gazette, the government’s official publication of record.

Six of the people are members of Russia’s national assembly — known as the Duma — who were elected from Crimea in September in the first vote since the takeover.

It is the second time the Liberal government has tightened sanctions in relation to the eastern European crisis which erupted in the spring of 2014.

The last round of measures were imposed in August of this year.

It is significant because the Liberals have made diplomatic re-engagement with Russia a cornerstone of their foreign policy since being elected last year, much to the private — and sometimes public — dismay of the Ukrainian government.

Arsen Avakov, Ukraine’s interior minister, was the latest to warn the Trudeau government about Moscow in closed-door meetings with two senior Liberal ministers.

“We rely on civilized countries to support Ukraine in this situation and, of course, we rely on Canada,” Avakov told CBC News in an interview this week.

“I have heard that Canada should start talking with Russia and have friendship with Russia,” he said. “The issue is not about being kind to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and giving him cookies, it is about demonstrating a firm position.”

The latest sanctions are “a very a positive step,” Avakov said.

‘Unfriendly action’

The additional measures may have been discreet and garnered little public attention in Canada, but they have prompted a fierce reaction from both the Kremlin and the media in Moscow.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova says her country regrets Canada’s decision and “this unfriendly action” will not go unanswered.

“These irresponsible actions by Ottawa only hinder the possible normalization of bilateral co-operation, including at the United Nations, where Canada has been trying to receive the status of a non-permanent UN Security Council member,” Zakharova said in a statement.

“These actions also cast doubt on the sincerity of the Canadian government’s proclaimed intentions to forge a constructive dialogue with Russia.”

The Russian news agency TASS interviewed Ruslan Balbek, Crimea’s former vice-premier and one of the people named in the new regulations.

The new sanctions do not surprise him, he says, and are meaningless because he claims to have no bank accounts or real estate in foreign countries.

“My whole life and work are focused on Russia. I have little interest in what is located outside Russia, especially if it is located overseas,” Balbek told TASS on Tuesday. “The fact that I have been included in another sanctions list is of no importance for the citizens of Russia.”

‘Consistent’ message

Dominique Arel, an expert in Ukrainian affairs at the University of Ottawa, said he sees no contradiction in the imposition of further sanctions while expressing the desire for a more constructive relationship with Moscow.

“It send the message, on this fundamental issue, that Canada is consistent — consistent with previous policy and consistent with Western policy,” Arel said.

When Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion met with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, last July, he made it clear, “Canada will not contemplate lifting sanctions until Russia implements its commitments under [the] Minsk [peace agreement] in full,” according to briefing notes obtained by CBC News under the Access to Information Act.

But NDP foreign affairs critic Hélène Laverdière says the sanctions list is not complete and the Liberals have failed to add two high-profile members of Putin’s inner circle to the list.

She is referring to Vladimir Yakunin, the powerful former head of Russian Railways, and Igor Sechin, the head of Russia’s state-owned energy company Rosneft — both of whom have been blacklisted by the U.S.

It’s believed the previous Conservative government did not sanction either of them because of their business ties in Canada, and it appears the Liberals have made the same calculation.

Arel says he has seen little difference in the relationship with Russia since the Liberals took over, with the exception of the current government’s softer tone. He points to the muted release of the latest sanctions as an example.

“It kind of fell under the radar,” he told CBC News. “Under the Harper government it would have been — how can I say? — far more visible.”

 They are pushing the buttons, lets hope they do not push the wrong ones.

New sanctions were passed on Nov. 28th by the Canadian government which will see various Russian nationals living in Canada having their assets frozen and their business dealings stopped.

The harsh sanctions comes in response to the annexation of Crimea and Moscow’s ongoing support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Not so long ago, orders were given, and all most all the bankers in Russia within the Federal Reserve, were executed, and the British was ordered out of Russia, Putin made it clear, if you do not leave, you will die.

LIGHTER SIDE

Donald Trump Fuels Viral ‘Loser CNN’ Meme

ALERT ALERT

Tom Fitton: Trump Was Victimized, Targeted by FBI,
Clinton Campaign, Russian Operatives, Obama Admin
and Fusion GPS

Judicial Watch founder and President Tom Fitton hammered the corrupt Mueller investigation on FOX and Friends Weekend on Saturday morning. Tom blasted the corrupt Obama Justice Department and declared the Trump-Russia collusion investigation over after Friday’s sham announcement of the indictment of 13 Russians.

Tom Fitton calls out the corrupt Justice Department on their criminal activity against candidate and President Trump.

Tom Fitton: At the end we have the massive Russia investigation that finds no collusion with the Trump Campaign. I don’t understand why we are still talking about a Special Counsel investigating the president in light of this indictment… Look those who say the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians are going to have to start providing evidence other than the Clinton-DNC dossier. Look this was in the news this week. We had the Susan Rice memo indicting Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Sally Yates, James Comey and Susan Rice in a conspiracy to get Trump on Russia. You had information that the number four at the Obama Justice Department, Bruce Ohr, hid information on his relationship with the Clinton Campaign cash machine – basically Fusion GPS that was collaborating with the Russia to launch dirt or really defamatory dirt against President Trump into the FBI-DOJ apparatus. And now you have this indictment of Russians abroad, an indictment that’s never going to see the light of day in short of trial because they’re never going to come here. It’s never going to be tried. We’re never going to find out whether anything in the indictment’s true. And what would they rather be talking about? This indictment where they found, despite all the king’s horses and all the king’s men, not one American colluded with the Russians.

Why isn’t this Justice Department looking into the abuse of the FISA process? Look the Russians were trying to make it clear to the Clinton Camp that they had dirt on Trump and they were going to use it against him. And all of that was false. And Trump was victimized and the FBI, rather than trying to protect him, used it as a pretext working with the Clinton campaign to target him under the corrupt Obama administration. Look this indictment shows the Russian scandal is over as far as Trump is concerned.

 

Obama is center of anti-@RealDonaldTrump effort -- when will he be questioned on the Clinton-DNC dossier? And, do what do we have the FBI for -- the shooter screw-up? New Lawsuits on Unmasking, the DNC Hack and Comey DOC. My @JudicialWatch update. https://youtu.be/h0WB08SHmuQ
