MOSCOW, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. The United States has not got a single argument that would prove the legitimacy of its stance on Ukraine, and Washington’s intention to impose sanction against Russia indicates that it is not prepared for constructive dialogue, Irina Yarovaya, chair of the Duma Security and Anti-Corruption Committee, told ITAR-TASS on Thursday, March 6.
“The United States uses threats and sanctions as a screen to cover its lack of willingness and readiness to conduct a constructive and open dialogue on the situation in Ukraine,” she said, adding that threats were always a sign of political weakness.
“The U.S. has not got a single argument in support of its rightfulness. If they consider it acceptable to prove that they have no relation to aggression by committing a new act of aggression or issuing threats, this is rather proof by contradiction, which proves their own involvement in what is happening in Ukraine now,” the MP said.
The White House said earlier in the day that President Barack Obama had issued an executive order imposing sanctions against Russian and Ukrainian officials and organisations that in Washington’s opinion are “threatening the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine.”
The U.S. sanctions will apply to individuals and entities “undermining democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine” and will freeze their bank accounts.
