    Yeah we need a broader-reaching, more effective Magnitsky Act setup by allied countries. Global pressure is the only thing that will shut down their ops. Freeze oligarch money and lifestyles and watch Putin in the hot seat. Poisonous gas crossing borders isn’t cool just thought I’d add that.

    Breaking: Russian ambassador to UK saying this is a severe provocation and they have nothing to do with it. And it’s unacceptable. UK must adhere to international law. Putin will be speaking later

    you have to punish countries like belarus too or its a pointless gesture

    She would score easy points by investigating then freezing and ceasing land from Russians parking money in residential real estate on suspicion of money laundering.

    The only thing that can stop Putin is to break the banks of his friends. Putin is leaving office in two way, retirement, or a box.

    What’s gonna happen with all this, really? Where is this going to go?

    Fear is the great polarizer when it comes to right wing economies.

    The UK declaring an ‘economic war’. Fuck, I’ll get the popcorn. (I live in the UK, for the record).

    lol, russian paid trolls invading top comments in the article with bullshit comments and fake likes.

    Well since the conservatives got in they’ve been waging economic war on their own so they may as well.

  16. djierwtsy March 14, 2018 / 7:38 pm

    Prepares? The economic war has been going on for a while now. Where has she been?

    I want to say the U.S. will join but Trump is ‘submissive’ to Putin.
