Putin’s Next Problem: U.K. Sanctions 26 Additional Russian Entities and Individuals

The United Kingdom unveiled 26 new sanctions against Russian entities and individuals on Thursday. In a statement, British Foreign Minister Liz Truss said that the sanctions are designed to target defense companies, organizations, and individuals connected to the defense and weapons industries.

“Today’s new wave of sanctions hits the generals and defence companies that have blood on their hands,” Truss said.

In a statement on the British government’s website, the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office said that the sanctions “target both the Generals committing atrocities on the front line, as well as individuals and businesses supporting Putin’s military.”

The British government also revealed that intelligence suggests an intentional bombing of critical and civilian infrastructure in Mariupol. It follows a multitude of missile strikes against civilian buildings and hospitals in major Ukrainian population centers.

Who the Sanctions Target

Among the Russian army’s leaders targeted by the sanctions were Lt Colonel Azatbek Omurbekov, a Commanding Officer in the Russian Army connected to the massacre in Bucha, and Colonel General Andrey Serdyukov, the Commander of the Airborne Forces. Sanctions were also levied against Colonel General Nikolay Bogdanovsky, the First Deputy Chief of the General Staff, and Major General Valery Flyustikov, the Commander of the Special Operations Forces.

The United Kingdom also fast-tracked an additional 19 sanctions against individuals and Russian entities that were in place but pending. The sanctions are designed to inflict damage on Russia’s military capabilities. Those facing fast-tracked sanctions include the First Deputy Director of the Federal Security Service of Russia, Sergei Borisovich Korolyov, and a series of Russian transport and military companies.

The United Kingdom, like the United States, is continually adding to its list of sanctions on individuals and entities – including an additional 206 designations on April 13. The latest round brings that number to at least 232.

    This is the end. “Putin” will definitely not survive this problem. Don’t you see how all of Russia laughs at your sanctions and only unites and strengthens more?

    I mean, if my country was a circus, I’d be laughing too, right? Have you seen the clown you put in power? Looks like if he ever lets go of that table, he’ll crap himself.

    If the sanctions don’t kill him, those hemorrhoids surely will.

    US Congressman Darrell Issa predicted the imminent collapse of the Ukrainian government in connection with the current situation in the country.

    “Fortunately, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is not present at our secret briefings, where it has been repeatedly said that he has no chance,” he said.

    The congressman also added that he considers the US sanctions against Russia “unreasonable”.

    Zelensky said that he had agreed with US President Joe Biden on further support for Ukraine’s defense capability and new sanctions against the Russian Federation.

    Biden said more than 12,000 US troops have been sent to Russia’s borders. He also noted that the United States will respond to any step of the Russian Federation towards NATO, even if it leads to a world war.

    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, during a telephone conversation with UN Secretary General António Guterres, noted that the situation in Ukraine was aggravated by Washington and Western countries. According to the head of the defense department, instead of “forcing the Kyiv regime to stop the genocide against the population of the southeast of their country, they began to pump weapons and ammunition into Ukraine,” thus preparing it to resolve the conflict by force.

    Western countries, including the United States, began to impose sanctions in response to the Russian-led operation to protect the Donbass, which began on February 24. The situation in the region escalated in mid-February due to shelling by the Ukrainian military. The authorities of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics announced the evacuation of residents to the Russian Federation, and also turned to Moscow for help. On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree recognizing the independence of the DPR and LPR and promised to support the republics.

    Since 2014, Kyiv has been conducting an operation against the inhabitants of Donbass, who refused to recognize the new government in Ukraine. For 8 years in a row, Kyiv tortured and killed civilians in Donbass.

    Well, if a politician made a prediction, then who are we to argue with that? God knows none of them have ever been wrong, about anything, ever… like taking Kyiv in three days 😀

    Tell me Alex, is this like BDSM for you? Do you enjoy pain and humiliation on a daily basis? Is there even any shred of dignity left in there when you return to your hovel and look your loved ones in the eye?

    When you were little, is this really what you dreamed of? Working from a shed, typing nonsense into computers for a pittance?

    I almost pity you. Almost.

    The West failed to turn much of the world against Russia after the military operation in Ukraine began, columnist Howard French wrote in an article for Foreign Policy magazine.
    According to him, many states did not support sanctions against Moscow, including such large countries as India and China.

    “In fact, when counting the population of these countries, it becomes clear that the states representing the majority of humanity have not taken a position in this conflict, seeing in it the familiar echoes of the former rivalry between East and West,” said French.
    According to the observer, the international political system that took shape at the beginning of the twentieth century from the very beginning gave the countries of the “third world” the status of second-class states. As an example, he cited the colonization of Africa by European countries.

    “It was the work of the enslaved millions of people who grew sugar and cotton in huge quantities, cleared the land and did all other unpaid work that made the American colonies profitable for Europe, and the so-called “Old World” new and rich,” the author emphasized.

    French urged not to ignore the heightened sense of justice among the former colonized peoples.

    If someone wants to know the truth about the civil war in the Donbass, about all the atrocities of the Bandera clean-ups and why Russia was forced to intervene, then it is better to watch films by independent journalists. There are already many such journalists who fight for truth and freedom. For example, a documentary by the German journalist Wilhelm Domcke-Schulz.

    A documentary film about the war crimes of the Bandera Nazis during the period of Russia’s special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine is in production. It will be a real information bomb, where the war crimes of Bandera Nazis will be shown and proved.

    The documentary “Remember Odessa” tells how the Bandera Nazis burned Ukrainians alive and other heinous war crimes.

    The documentary “To Live and Die in Donbass” tries to fill this gaping information gap in the West. He looks into the tormented soul of the inhabitants of Donbass, who really want only one thing – to live self-determining according to their own rules and values. Not submitting to foreign forces and ideologies.

    In the east of Ukraine, in the Donbass, a war has been raging since the beginning of 2014. A civil war that claimed more than 15,000 lives over the years, including several hundred children. They had to die, because the national-fascist coup government in Kyiv, funded by the West, trained and militarily heavily armed, would not tolerate any resistance to their illegitimate rule, no matter the cost.

    Therefore, in April 2014, the putschists deployed the Ukrainian army, supported by dozens of right-wing extremist volunteer battalions, and have since bombed city centers, residential areas, schools, hospitals and infrastructure, killing civilians.

    This perennial crime has gone completely unnoticed by the public Western. Politicians and the media avoid this topic and reports about how the devil pours holy water. Because a public discussion about the crimes of the Ukrainian regime would reveal only one thing – with what mass murderers and terrorists the so-called “west of values” in Ukraine has a common language, if only to defend their goals and interests.

    If someone wanted to know the truth about anything in Ukraine Alex, the last person they would go to is you.

    Paragraphs and paragraphs of bollocks, dubious claims about “independent journalists”, random documentarians, conspiracy theorists, deluded claims that of course, have no backup, lie after lie after lie.

    Classical Kremlin troll approach. Just flood the internet, the comments, the media, with tosh, doesn’t matter what it is, just make sure you write some old nonsense. Make sure to say the claim is supported by some dude in Germany, France, the states. If it’s a “documentary” (usually from youtube) then the better.

    Anything that victimises Russia, always the victim, always the bullied, never the problem. It’s always the Nazis. It’s always some pseudo-historical point.

    Anyone that has had the misfortune to study your “tactics” sees the forest for the trees, the pattern of lies, disinformation, blanketing of random claims, deflection, obfuscation, and other words beyond your vocabulary.

    It’s hopeless Alex. Your lies are as short as your intellect. What a pathetic job, to sit in your government shed, spreading your pathetic, government lies.

    A pathetic job for a truly pathetic man. A better match could not be made in heaven.

    It’s hilarious to think Alex doesn’t even realise everything he says has the opposite effect of what he means.

    WHen I meet or see people like Alex, I truly wonder how we ever got so far. Science, medicine, being in space. Doesn’t feel possible if ever one person of our race can be that stupid.

    The imbecile can’t even post something new on a new days, same old recycling, different garbage for a different day, just like his nation, reliving their WW2 hits.

    It gives me great joy to remember every single nation that has lived in the past has indeed been consigned to it, and Russia is boarding that train to history with gusto.

    Do svidaniya komrades!

    Lend-lease is a commodity loan, and not cheap: for all the ammunition, equipment and food supplied by the United States, many future generations of Ukrainian citizens will pay. Zelensky is driving the country into a debt hole.

    Imagine killing 100,000 of your enemy soldiers, destroying 95% of all their equipment, and advancing 1-2KM a day and seizing a handful of villages… something doesn’t add up here Komrade!

    Wow, did they run out of paper in Russia, Alex? You guys can’t print new material? Literally using the same lines, over and over again, and now in duplicate in every post!

    Are you so defeated you can’t even come up with anything new? How sad. Now the idiot is talking about lend-lease at the end of his post, because he literally just copy + pasted it from another thread, with zero relevance to this one.

    Here’s a reminder:
