EU foreign ministers levy sanctions after Crimean public vote referendum

The E.U. and U.S. have announced sanctions against individuals.
EU foreign ministers meeting in Brussels said they wanted to send a strong signal to Moscow.

  • “It is a day on which clear messages need to happen,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said following the three-hour meeting in Brussels. According to him, Russia’s Black Sea Fleet commander Alexander Vitko was on the EU ban list, alongside several members of Russia’s parliament.
  • A statement from the White House followed soon after confirming that U.S. Pres. Barack Obama had ordered sanctions against at least seven other individuals linked to the crisis, including ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
  • The Czech Republic’s foreign minister, Lubomir Zaoralek, told reporters that they were focusing on 20 “political individuals” to levy sanctions against by the end of Monday, “This is to be the first set and I would not rule out that this list can be widened at the next meeting of the Council,” Zaoralek said, referring to the EU Council’s next scheduled meeting on Thursday 20 March 2014.
  • “The Republic of Crimea appeals to the United Nations and to all countries of the world to recognize it as an independent state,” a document approved by Crimea’s regional assembly said.
  • A Crimean parliamentary delegation was expected to arrive in Moscow on Monday to discuss the procedures required for the region to become part of the Russian Federation. Final results showed that 96.8% of voters were in favour of joining Russia, the head of the referendum commission said. Mikhail Malyshev told a televised news conference that the commission had not registered a single complaint about the vote.

  • The strategy in a nutshell: “We need to move forward and put these things in place,” then wait to see how Russia reacts, Senator John Hoeven (R. North Dakota), said in an interview Sunday. “They can be effective against the Russian ruling class. If we do that in a concerted way with our allies, we can make this painful to Russia.”
  • The trade risk: Fifteen per cent of Russia’s economic activity depends on exports to the EU, while just 1 per cent of the EU’s GDP depends on purchases from Russia. But this 1 per cent includes Russian gas, which supplies a quarter of the EU’s needs; some eastern members are 100 per cent dependent on Russia’s gas. If Russia turns off the gas, is Europe willing to take the strain?

    U.S. Senators return from Ukraine, call for aid package, Russia sanctions

    As Crimea held a referendum all but certain to endorse secession from Ukraine, a bipartisan group of eight senators returned from a weekend trip to the region and called for quick congressional action on a package of aid for Ukraine and sanctions against Russia.

    The trip “helped foster some bipartisanship that I think will help advance the sanctions,” said Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.), one of the members of the delegation, which was led by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).

    Upon their return, four of the senators appeared on Sunday morning talk shows to increase the sense of urgency surrounding the bill, which passed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week but has gotten tangled in a separate set of issues involving changes to the International Monetary Fund that some Republicans oppose.

    In an interview, Hoeven said that if the parties cannot work out their differences over the IMF provisions, which would shift $63 billion from its crisis fund to its general accounts, they should set that issue aside and move ahead of the other parts of the measure.

    Meanwhile, McCain said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that “economic sanctions are a very important step. Identify these kleptocrats and – look, Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country. Its kleptocracy, its corruption, it’s a nation that’s really only dependent upon oil and gas for their economy. And so economic sanctions are important.”

    The senators warned that the consequences of inaction would be dire.

    Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” called Russian President Vladimir Putin’s recent actions in Ukraine “the single most serious act of aggression since the Cold War. He ended up the final ceremony at the Sochi Olympics, which are network-covered, trying to make it a charm offensive for the world that this is a modern Russian nation. And within hours he’s invading one of his neighbors, sending the same troops that were protecting the athletes at Sochi into the Crimea. Now, are we going to stand by and say this is acceptable conduct? Because this isn’t the end of his ambition.​”

    At the same time, some of them acknowledged that the penalties may not be enough.
    “It’s going to be difficult,” said Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who appeared with Durbin. “Let’s face it, Russia has always had its design on Crimea, it considers Crimea a part of Russia. And so that’s going to be difficult. But all you can do is increase the cost significantly, and — and hope that they don’t move further into Ukraine. . . . We’ve got to move in hard now with sanctions, regardless of whether they move tomorrow or the next week or hold back. We’re going to move forward with sanctions; not just us, but our European allies as well.”

    Why bankers want control of Ukraine, part 2 and how bankers are fooling Ukrainians into enslaving themselves for future generations.
    We discuss the bailout of EU banks disguised as a “bailout” of Ukranian people, the close alliances between Rothschild banking organizations like the IMF and the new neo-Nazi regime, and the disappearance of Ukraine’s 42.3 tonnes of gold.
