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.

ALERT ALERT

Breaking:  FBI Admits Comey Leaked Memos 
 That Were Classified   Material! 

The FBI turned over the Comey memos to Congress today after missing their deadline earlier in the week.

Congressional leaders threatened to impeach deep state leaders if they continued to stall on the memos.

Fired FBI Chief James Comey wrote about the memos in his book and leaked the documents to reporters last year. Congress has not yet had a chance to look at the memos — Until tonight.

AND—– THE MEMOS ARE CLASSIFIED!

Meaning Fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESS.

From the report:

From the DOJ to Congress:

Therefore, pursuant to your request, we are providing the requested memoranda in both the redacted and unredacted formats for your convenience. Consistent with your request, we are providing an unclassified version of the documents redacted to remove any classified information.

The DOJ wrote Congressional leaders this evening.

Hannity: Good news for Trump, crushing blows for the left

GOP Congressional Leaders Nunes, Gowdy And Goodlatte Release Statement On Comey Memos

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued a statement on the memos later tonight.

The House chairmen note that the memos prove that fired Director Comey never felt obstructed or threatened from his relationship with the president.

And… former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel.

The Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence published the statement tonight:

Today House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued the following statement:

“We have long argued former Director Comey’s self-styled memos should be in the public domain, subject to any classification redactions. These memos are significant for both what is in them and what is not.

Former Director Comey’s memos show the President made clear he wanted allegations of collusion, coordination, and conspiracy between his campaign and Russia fully investigated. The memos also made clear the ‘cloud’ President Trump wanted lifted was not the Russian interference in the 2016 election cloud, rather it was the salacious, unsubstantiated allegations related to personal conduct leveled in the dossier.

The memos also show former Director Comey never wrote that he felt obstructed or threatened. While former Director Comey went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.

The memos also make certain what has become increasingly clear of late: former Director Comey has at least two different standards in his interactions with others. He chose not to memorialize conversations with President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, Secretary Clinton, Andrew McCabe or others, but he immediately began to memorialize conversations with President Trump. It is significant former Director Comey made no effort to memorialize conversations with former Attorney General Lynch despite concerns apparently significant enough to warrant his unprecedented appropriation of the charging decision away from her and the Department of Justice in July of 2016.

These memos also lay bare the notion that former Director Comey is not motivated by animus. He was willing to work for someone he deemed morally unsuited for office, capable of lying, requiring of personal loyalty, worthy of impeachment, and sharing the traits of a mob boss. Former Director Comey was willing to overlook all of the aforementioned characteristics in order to keep his job. In his eyes, the real crime was his own firing.

The memos show Comey was blind to biases within the FBI and had terrible judgment with respect to his deputy Andrew McCabe. On multiple occasions he, in his own words, defended the character of McCabe after President Trump questioned McCabe.

Finally, former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel, yet he took no steps to spur the appointment of Special Counsel when he had significant concerns about the objectivity of the Department of Justice under Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

As we have consistently said, rather than making a criminal case for obstruction or interference with an ongoing investigation, these memos would be Defense Exhibit A should such a charge be made.”
