Same sanctions, only side view. The USA has offered new strategy against Russia


The former coordinator of sanctions policy of the American State Department Daniel Fried has made a complex package of measures for strengthening of pressure upon Moscow. A main goal — a complete separation of the relations between leaders of Russia and the USA, political scientists Daniel Fried consider. Photo: Reuters New strategy of sanctions against Russia. The former coordinator of sanctions policy of State Department of the USA Daniel Fried has offered a complex package of measures for strengthening of pressure upon Moscow. He has made a speech at hearings in the American senate. It is remarkable that something essentially new isn't in the list of offers. Fried suggests to focus on two directions. The first — so-called sectoral sanctions. They treat financial and power branches and also defensive technologies. These are sanctions against a new Russian national debt, the ban on financing of the Russian state companies by Americans and blocking of assets. The second direction — additional restrictions against people from an inner circle of Vladimir Putin. Political aspect — most important in Fried's proposals, the chief researcher of Institute of the USA and Canada of RAS Vladimir Vasilyev considers. According to him, new sanctions, in fact, are designed to break off the relations between leaders of Russia and the USA: Vladimir Vasilyev the chief researcher of Institute of the USA and Canada of RAS "Between the states really today a situation breath-taking from the point of view of sanctions pressure. And here from the point of view of personal relations there is still some gleam, hope for improvement of the relations, for some contacts. Here this sanctions pressure because it already personally beats the top political management of Russia is also directed to a rupture of the last communication and does all further contacts or a talk between two leaders senseless in any form. If these sanctions are imposed and if certain legislative significance by that principle is still attached to them that administrations to weaken this pressure, it is necessary to ask permission of the congress, consider that to Trump in his politician of construction and improvement of the Russian-American relations the checkmate will be made". Daniel Fried has suggested to strike also the Russian oil and gas sector. And he considers that it is necessary to focus on future production and perspective fields and not to harm already operating capacities. At the same time Fried has taken care of partners of the USA. According to him, sanctions against the Nord Stream — 2 gas pipeline can cause negative reaction of Germany, and she the key conductor of sanctions policy for Russia in Europe.
