Sanctions Regime Directed against Russia is Part of a US-NATO Military Agenda 


“We are implementing these new measures in light of Russia’s actions to further destabilise Ukraine over the last month, including through the presence of heavily armed Russian forces in eastern Ukraine, … If Russia fully implements its commitments, these sanctions can be rolled back. If, instead, Russia continues its aggressive actions and violations of international law, the costs will continue to rise.” ( President Barack Obama, September 11, 2001)

Obama’s assertion that “Russian combat forces with Russian weapons and Russian tanks”  have been deployed in Eastern Ukraine is an outright lie.  It’s not only a Lie, it is Lie which could potentially precipitate humanity into a Third World War.

Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) “have registered no troops, ammunition or weapons crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border over the past two weeks” (Itar-Tass)

The sanctions regime directed against Russia is part of a broader process of economic and financial warfare in support of a clearly defined military agenda.  While the West accuses Russia of “aggression”, the NATO summit in Wales has outlined a military road-map which threatens Russia’s security.
