The American ambassador to the organization of security and cooperation in Europe, James Gilmore, said that the Russian Federation should not go unpunished for military operations in Ukraine.
On this subject, it is written “MFN” referring to “Voice of America “.
According to Gilmore, the Kremlin is trying in every possible way today to free itself from its responsibility in the events in Ukraine:
“They deny all the facts, carry out misinformation and various distracting maneuvers to all those who believe in the principles of the Helsinki Final Act. But we are obliged to come together and bring Russia to justice for all the atrocities in Ukraine – for the annexation of Crimea and the war in Donbas ”.
The American diplomat stressed that even if Moscow violates Ukrainian sovereignty, the sanctions against it cannot be lifted:
“We stand in solidarity with our European colleagues and ensure that sanctions against Russia will be preserved until it fulfills its obligations set out in the Minsk agreements. And the sanctions for Crimea will be until the peninsula returns to Ukraine. “
Recall that we had previously reported that the United States Congress was calling for new sanctions against Russia.
