PRESS RELEASE


Obama’s Ukraine Ambassador Pyatt Says Obama Preparing New Sanctions against Russia

Aug. 13, 2016 (EIRNS)—In an interview with the Ukrainian journal Den, U.S. Ambassador to Kiev Geoffrey Pyatt said that the Obama Administration is preparing new sanctions to "send a clear message to Moscow" that Russia had to "stop its aggressive policy" toward Ukraine. Pyatt said that definitely, no easing or lifting of sanctions (as some in Europe are calling for) would occur, and that rather, additional sanctions will have to be considered. These are already being worked on in Washington, he said, adding that he could not say what kind of sanctions these would be. Pyatt, you should remember, was the person with whom Victoria Nuland spoke when planning to overthrow the Ukrainian government, regardless of what the Ukrainian people might want or the EU ("Fuck the EU," she said) might think.

Lyndon LaRouche’s comment was: "This is insane."
