Pompeo threatens Russia with new sanctions and demands to “return” Crimea

Mike Pompeo, the head of the US State Department, said the Americans would not recognize Crimea as Russian. It is expected that he once again demanded to “return” the peninsula to Kiev.

“As the Crimean Declaration of 2018 emphasizes, the United States will never recognize Russia’s claim to the sovereignty of the peninsula. We urge Russia to end the occupation of Crimea”, – he said.

At the same time, Pompeo claims that in Crimea “they violate human rights and freedoms, including freedom of religion, and infringement of the interests of Crimean Tatars”.

Either Ukraine is a country of freedom. There, after all, the Natsiks do not smash the churches, and nobody beat anyone for the Russian language. Right?

“The United States condemns Russia’s illegal actions in Crimea and its ongoing aggressive actions against Ukraine, including in the Donbass. We will maintain sanctions against Russia until it regains control of Crimea in Ukraine and fully fulfills its obligations under the Minsk agreements”, – Pompeo added.

Well, you are welcome: sanctions in Russia have not scared anyone for a long time.
