U.S. To Impose Sanction Putin Directly

Not quite sure why this wasn’t one of the first sanctions, but, at least Brandon is playing catchup quickly

U.S. joins EU and U.K. in sanctioning Putin directly

The U.S. imposed sanctions Friday on Russian President Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and other members of Russia’s Security Council.

Why it matters: It is extremely rare for the U.S. to sanction a sitting world leader, and the Kremlin had previously said it would consider sanctions on Putin himself to be a de facto severing of relations between the U.S. and Russia.

  • The move reflects Moscow’s new pariah status but is mostly symbolic, as it’s unclear what assets Putin and Lavrov actually hold in the West after years of escalating sanctions against Russia.
  • Putin in particular is believed to rely on his inner circle of Russian oligarchs to stash his vast wealth abroad.

Driving the news: The sanctions prohibit Putin and Lavrov from traveling to the U.S. and also target Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov.

And therein lies one of the issues, what, exactly, will this mean to Putin? What holdings does he have in the U.S. and Europe, as the EU sanctions on him do the same as the U.S. ones.

And, of course, as expected, Russia vetoed the UN Security council resolution.

Double of course, you wouldn’t know any of this stuff if you tuned into the White House twitter feed, which doesn’t mention Ukraine at all today. It’s primarily about Brandon nomination Judge Jackson. The only mention at Whitehouse.gov is on Brandon’s call with Ukranian president Zelenskyy. Which is also the only thing mentioned in relation to Ukraine on the POTUS twitter account.

Now, he’s supposedly going to attend a funeral for his daughter-in-law’s mother, and work on his SOTU. Pretty bad optics to be out of Washington all weekend, though, and you know if Trump were president the media and Democrats would be wondering why he couldn’t go to the funeral then come back to D.C. Different rules, you know. And, really, this whole war thing is just so inconvenient for Joe.

    These are the same people who voted for the guy that ended US energy independence, and made us have to buy Russian oil, then sanctioned Russian oil so we couldn’t buy it.

    Pure genius.

    Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    So which is it, Teach?

    Do you not give a “rat’s butt” about Ukraine-Russia, or is the conflict equivalent to the US being at war with Russia??

    How dare President Biden attend a family member’s funeral? We’re at war! Or something…

    The GOP stands foursquare behind Russia! At a white nationalist klonvokation (AFPAC) in Orlando, the crowd chanted Putin! Putin! Putin!. US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was a featured speaker. Ties between the US far-right and Russian despotism are evident.

      Hairy you seriously got to get rid of auto-fill on your phone. Ya gotta love the echo chamber the left has put over them. Reminds me of Get SMART and the DOME OF SILENCE.

      Would you Believe?

      No hairy we pretty much don’t believe anything your toilet phone writes.

    We understand that a large part of the far-right’s love affair with Vladimir Putin is that he’s a “man’s man”, a tough guy, a no-nonsense man who can kill with his bare hands…

    Why not have Vlad the Destroyer have a mano-y-mano contest with the mayor of Kyiv?

    • Down on the Corner says:

      Is DOWD still going on with the far rights love affair with Putin. Are you anti-gay????

      What’s wrong with a man loving a man DOWD???? DOWD IS A HOMOPHOBE!!!!! OMG, Im telling!!

      DOWD why don’t you go fight in Kyiv for your buddies in Ukraine, who gave your heros Hunter and Joe Biden millions in kick backs. I would think you want to make sure your political allies keep the big man getting his cut.

      Have you bought a Hunter Biden Picasso yet? Van Goh? Michelangelo?

      We far righties understand the left is wedded to corruption which is why they want to save Ukraine all the while bringing in drugs, gangsters, child rapists, women beaters and anti-gay homophobes from the wide-open southern border.

      We understand the left WANTS OPEN BORDERS….so I’m confused that the homophobe DOWD is upset that Russia is just taking what they want. You know open borders and all.

        …with no kiss, no reach-around and no lube. The cuckhold DC Republicans have most definitely reserved their VIP place in Dante’s 9th level of Hell for their treachery against their voters and the American people. And yet the dOwdist still hates them for being conservatives which is the farthest thing from what they are.

        Democrats are already demonic, so they have passes to the lower realms.

        Like you, Down on the Corner the rest of us true patriots have no idea where this douche gets his info but they must be real bright people to think conservatives would like the guys who launder Hunters and Brandons money. I mean a war broke out so where will the biden’s get their money laundered now?

        Of course the fags that run the New American People’s Paradise have a whole new Army led by a fag in an admirals dress:

      Rush Limbaugh used to make fun of the militant women’s right movement.

      He used to say if we just sent a division of Women on PMS to the Middle East it would solve everything. Well, now there you go. I understand our military’s plan under Biden. Turn our men into women by injecting them with PMS INDUCING DRUGS!!!!!!!

      It all makes sense now. Rush was right!!!

  5. Jl says:

    Well of corse he was right! Funny-but you do realize those aren’t t women, correct? I know it’s hard to tell…..

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Not a broad in the group. BTW, is it a gaggle of gays or a murder of misfits?

      The Ukrainians are handing out automatic weapons to their people to help fight the Russians. I imagine our fearless senile pres will admonish them that they’ll need F-14’s and nukes like he did we Americans.

      I hope the Ukies blow the brains out of the Russia bastards but dOwd keeps telling me I’m an anti American Putin supporter and so is Trump. And he should know because he knows everything! Hunter meanwhile is frantic trying to keep those graft checks rolling in.

      Let’s go Brandon, get Hunter painting faster you need income replacement for the money laundering scheme. Or you could go all “Hillary” and just sell Putin some uranium.
