Fresh sanctions are only for those Russian industries, who produce equipment to create and use chemical weapons. New sanction’s pack is waited on Monday, April, 16.
In Saturday, USA, Great Britain and France launched 105 missile strikes on Syrian strategy objects, suspected by allies in production, storing and using chemical weapons. It is an answer on last week’s chemical attack in Douma.
Russian Federation condemns a missile strike on Syria. A Russia’s ambassador in UN declared, that allies hadn’t permissions to do that without official results of Douma’s chemical attack investigation. Russia’s resolution about missile strikes on Syria was submitted to the UN Security Council, but did not receive the required number of votes. Only China and Bolivia supported the resolution.
Last US sanctions against 24 Russian businessmen and 14 companies have caused a significant falling of the Russian ruble. Investors’ fears the situation may repeat again.
