Статья называется 'Witness Tampering'.

Последний абзац:
Without the imprimatur of nonfiction, it is unlikely that Alexievich’s work would have won so much praise around the world. Rather than being taken as objective confirmation of the awfulness of the Soviet Union and Russia, the book might have been interpreted as an expression of the views of one particular writer. Readers would have been more skeptical about Alexievich’s shocking stories and less tolerant of her lack of nuance. Under scrutiny, Secondhand Time falls short as both fact and art.

Response to We the People Petition on Russia

Thank you for your petition.

The Secretary of State has the authority to determine which countries have repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism and so designate them as "state sponsors of terrorism" pursuant to three laws: Section 6(j) of the Export Administration Act, Section 40 of the Arms Export Control Act, and Section 620A of the Foreign Assistance Act. Taken together, the four main categories of sanctions resulting from designation under these authorities include: restrictions on U.S. foreign assistance; a ban on defense exports and sales; certain controls over exports of dual use items; and miscellaneous financial and other restrictions. Currently, four countries are so designated: Syria, Cuba, Iran, and Sudan.

We remain deeply concerned by Russia's continuing destabilizing actions in eastern Ukraine and its ongoing failure to fulfill the commitments to which it agreed in Minsk. We are also very concerned that, according to a U.N. report published in mid-November, Russia's noncompliance and ongoing aggressive actions continue to result in fatalities -- military and civilian -- in eastern Ukraine, with an average of 13 per day.

In response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine, including its occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea, the United States and its international partners have imposed sanctions in Russia's financial, energy, and defense sectors. Dozens of senior Russian officials, members of President Putin's inner circle, and other individuals materially or financially supporting actions undermining or threatening Ukraine's sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence are now subject to asset freezes and travel bans. The United States and our G-7 partners are no longer supporting development finance for Russia.

We have repeatedly made it clear that President Putin has a choice. If he is willing to find a lasting settlement to the conflict within the context of the Minsk agreements and without setting unreasonable conditions, sanctions could be rolled back. If Russia continues to flout its commitments and continues its dangerous and destabilizing actions, then the costs to Russia will continue to rise.

Доигрались, паскуды.

И какое совпадение - сразу после принятия санкций. Хотя, конечно, post hoc nоn est propter hoc.

Сегодня видела две полицейские машины, стоящие возле посольства Израиля Украины.
Интересно, с чего бы это.

Уважаемые американцы и европейцы! Обращаюсь к вам напрямую. Я верю, что среди вас есть разумные образованные воспитанные люди. Я знаю таких людей среди вас.
Крымский народ (после 23х лет ежедневного пиара, о том какая хорошая Украина и какие плохие эти русские!) свободно, мирно и демократично пришел на участки. Великий, смелый, гордый, достойный народ Крыма честно заявил всему миру, что больше не может терпеть этой лжи. 97% Крыма высказались против фашизма.

А что сделали ваши чиновники? Они от вашего имени ввели санкции против тех, кто позволил народу свободно высказаться.

Мне очень стыдно за вас. И вашим детям и внукам будет стыдно за вас. Если вы это проглотите. Если вы не выступите против избранных вами чиновников, которые уничтожают ваше достоинство на глазах у всех. Если вы позволите им дальше вытирать об вас ноги.

Однако самый цимес в образовании товарища Просвирякова:

Армянское радио спросили:
- С кем граничит Советский Союз?
- С кем хочет, с тем и граничит.
