The head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksenov said that the heads of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Investigative Committee and the FSB in Crimea, as well as the Minister of Property and Land Relations of the republic were included in the new US sanctions lists.
Commenting on the US sanctions, Sergei Aksyonov reacted with humor.
“A common story. Today I have a question for some colleagues who are not yet on the sanctions list: how did you get past it? ” – joked the Head of the Republic of Crimea.
The Crimean leader said that in his opinion, such a US policy testifies to complete impotence, which drives the White House administration to hysteria.
“I believe that in fact the sanctions hysteria testifies to the successful work of colleagues and to the fact that the enemies of Crimea have neither the strength nor the ability to stop the development of our region,” said Sergei Aksenov.
Note that the persons indicated by the head of the Republic of Crimea included in the list of sanctions fall under the restrictions of the Russian legislation on leaving the country. Accordingly, these persons already had no financial ties with the United States, could not become residents or visit the United States without the permission of the Russian government.
