Zakharova: We are preparing something special for the American colleagues

US wants to somehow compensate for the inefficiency of sanctions against Russia by extending the restrictive measures, said the Special Representative of the Foreign Ministry of Russia.

Russia will choose a special response to the US expansion of anti-Russian sanctions, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia Maria Zakharova said.

“You know, the answer will come in time. We will choose for our American colleagues something special, “she said at a briefing.

Speaking about the situation in Donbass, Zakharova said the ceasefire on the line of demarcation in eastern Ukraine fragile due to provocation of the Ukrainian side.
However, according to Zakharova, Moscow hopes that the truce in Donbass outlast the New Year holidays.

“We believe that the regime of silence in Donbass will not be limited with the winter holidays and will have a permanent character. It’s something you have to strive to, “said Zakharova.

As for the situation in Libya, Zakharova said that Russia supports the integrity of the country. Russia wants to know if Erdogan would indeed resign after Norway announced data on the smuggling of Daesh oil in Turkey, said Maria Zakharova.

“Russia, as it is known, is taking measures to suspend oil shipments to terrorists. We expect active cooperation with other countries in this matter. I would remind you that the President of Turkey, Erdogan has recently said that he is ready to resign if the accusations of oil smuggling from Ankara to the terrorist organization was indeed going on with its tacit approval and it becomes a proven fact. I’m interested in what’s with that chair? “, said Zakharova at the briefing.

Zakharova stressed that the deployment of US missile defense systems in Romania is in direct violation of the agreement on positioning of small and medium-range missiles.

“MK 41 vertical launching systems are part of the missile defense system in the aforementioned place. They are used by US Navy ships for firing interceptor missiles and Tomahawk winged medium-range missiles,” Zakharova said.

Presence of such missiles on the land shows a direct violation of the agreement on the US missile formation of small and medium-range missiles, “said Zakharova at the briefing.

    The “Response” will not be military in nature – this is not the style of President Putin. The only truly hard response I can think of is shutting off gas to a principle US ally, ie Europe. However, while this will undermine governments and turn their supporters against them, it will also hurt the general populations, the majority of whom are sympathetic to Russia.

      That would be self defeating and too simplistic.
