This last round of sanctions started with the lies from the USA…
Russia said that they were done and will return sanctions…
Moscow said that both countries’ envoys should hold consultations with their superiors amid the current situation, thus also recommending that US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan return to Washington for this purpose.
10 American diplomats will be expelled from the country.
Russia is launching the procedure to withdraw from an earlier agreement allowing diplomats of the two countries to travel outside the cities where they are based.
Moscow will ban US diplomatic facilities from hiring Russians and third-country citizens.
The Russian Foreign Ministry will also reduce the number of short-term visas it issues to American diplomats.
The Kremlin also added eight members of the current and former US administrations involved in the “development and implementation of the anti-Russian course” in American politics to the no-entry list.
In addition, Moscow will be banning the operations of US foundations working in Russia with the aim of meddling in the country’s domestic politics.
The list of eight people who have been banned from entering Russia includes six current Biden administration officials: FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons Michael Carvajal, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, and Director of the Domestic Policy Council Susan Rice. In addition to them, the Russian ministry added Trump’s former National Security Adviser John Bolton and Bill Clinton-era CIA chief Robert James Woolsey Jr. to the blacklist.
Russia returned sanctions and then the USA started saying that Russia has escalated the sanction situation!
Yes you heard me correct…..Russia who has been sanctioned and sanctioned and sanctioned for lie after lie after lie created by the USA and lap puppies, actually sanctioned back. Then the USA who has no high ground at all, whines about unfair…
“Today’s announcement by the Russian government was escalatory and regrettable,” the USA said on Friday. “It is not in our interest to get into an escalatory cycle, but we reserve the right to respond to any Russian retaliation against the United States.”
You cannot make this stuff up and as always the USA is sitting in the sandbox throwing sand at everyone and yelling about how its feelings and rights are hurt!
I have to admit that there is one politician that sees the truth and she has a right to worry…
Are we prepared to see our loved ones burn alive in a nuclear holocaust in a war with Russia over Ukraine? If not, cut out the macho saber rattling and deescalate before it’s too late. pic.twitter.com/T8RSrrSjuj

Tulsi Gabbard, very well said and I know that you will get serious backlash from stating the truth…
I will say it again, “If we keep escalating our attempts at war with China and Russia? Attempts that so far are being met with futile resistance within the USA! The people living in the USA will find out first hand what it is like to being in a war zone…”
