The USA has threatened Russia with sea blockade


The statement for it was made by the Minister of Internal Affairs of the country Ryan Zinke. Such measure, according to him, has to prevent Russia "to receive control over deliveries of energy carriers in the Middle East". Whether the Interior Minister is competent to speak about it, especially when there are no such deliveries? Ryan Zinke. Photo: Eric Thayer/Reuters the United States have threatened Russia with sea blockade. This subject in a top of news on "Yandex" though only one at all not most influential American edition has reported about it. The statement for blockade was allegedly made by the Minister of Internal Affairs of the USA Ryan Zinke during the performance on an industrial action in Pittsburgh. His words were cited by the American newspaper Washington Examiner — popular in conservative political circles which is called the newspaper for government employees and professional politicians from Washington. Material in the edition is called "One of scenarios of interaction with Russia". In him it is said that Zinke has threatened to block maritime routes of Russia in order that "to prevent her to receive control over deliveries of energy carriers in the Middle East — as she has made it in Europe".

And it didn't seem to all a little. — The Washington Examiner edition what is and whether it should be trusted in general? — It is the newspaper which with pleasure places some here such sensational things. And it is no wonder that she has appeared one. It seemed to her that it will be very abruptly. And all other newspapers have considered it frivolous.
