US Considers New Sanctions on Russia

By Nick Baum

MONDAY – 4/16/18

Yesterday, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced that the United States will impose new economic sanctions on Russia for supporting Syrian President Bashar al Assad and his alleged use of chemical weapons.

The sanctions also follow a new line of pressure on Syria and Russia’s backing of the nation. Just days ago, three missiles were launched at science centers and factories that allegedly upheld Syria’s chemical warfare program. This was done in retaliation to the alleged use of chemical weapons against a group of rebel civilians in the city of Douma.

It isn’t the first time that Trump will impose new sanctions on Russia. In fact, The New York Times reports it is the third round of sanctions going against Russia in four weeks. The US aims for the new sanctions to add on to the pressure against Russia and their backing of Syria.

    I would like to see what positions you take and how you argue them. for example, to take the most recent, what donyounthinkmsqn tionsnwill donor may not do and what kind of sanctions would you consider that would. It hurt the general population? As for Mother. Use, do you think refusing medical care that may prolong life but not affect the quality of life is a good idea- in general and in particular regarding Mrs. B’s illnesses?

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I’ve been thinking about adding more opinion articles to the page, as I really don’t like adding my opinions to unbiased articles.
