United States to impose sanctions on Russian Federation in wake of Syrian chemical attack

United States to impose sanctions on Russian Federation in wake of Syrian chemical attack

The Trump administration on Monday will announce new sanctions on Russian Federation over the Syrian use of chemical weapons, United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said Sunday.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Sunday that the sanctions are being imposed "without any link to any realities".

In a separate interview, Haley told CBS News that new sanctions against Russian Federation, which has forces in Syria supporting the Assad regime, would be announced Monday that would "go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use". "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to us", she said.

The sanctions are the latest effort by the United States to punish the Assad regime and its allies for a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians two weeks ago.

The U.S., the United Kingdom and France carried out a coordinated missile attack on Syria Friday night, striking military installations involved with the use of chemical weapons. Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the United Nations Security Council regarding chemical weapons. On Fox News Sunday, Haley said troop withdrawal would come after three goals had been accomplished: defeating Islamic State militants, ensuring that chemical weapons will not be used and maintaining the ability to watch Iran.

"Everything that has strained the relationship is on Russia's side", she said, adding that the USA hopes for improved relations with Moscow, but that "we're not going to put up with bad behavior to get it". The Trump administration has placed a series of sanctions on Russian individuals and entities, including ones last month targeting Russian oligarchs who are close to President Vladimir Putin. The rollout of new sanctions is usually closely guarded, in part to prevent people subjected to them from quickly moving their money around.

Armenians protest leader's plan to stay in power as prime minister
On Monday morning, April 16, protesters blocked bridges, streets and underground stations to protest Sargsyan's candidacy. Later on the police closed the part of Baghramyan Avenue which leads to the Parliament.

The Treasury Department told DailyMail.com it "does not comment on prospective actions".

Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) said the success of the missile attacks depended on whether Syria stopped using chemical weapons.

Sanders said the United States and coalition forces "went out to destroy critical chemical weapons infrastructure in Syria, and they did exactly that".

She said President Trump "has made it very clear that, when it comes to weapons of mass destruction, we have no tolerance for it".

Asked about Mr. Trump's use of the term "mission accomplished" to describe the strike, Ms. Haley said it makes more sense in a military context. "Saying it's been a success - we won't know until we see if the regime continues to use chemical weapons". "We of course know that our work in Syria is not done". "That doesn't mean that the Syrians can't re-create the chemical weapons to use again".
