US is looking into how sanctions against Russia will affect the situation in Donbass: CNN

The Biden administration is studying how new sanctions planned to be imposed on Russia could affect the situation in Donbas.

This was reported by CNN, citing sources.

The report says that senior White House officials held a meeting last week to discuss more anti-Russian sanctions. But the discussion was influenced by the aggravation of the situation in the Donbass, and now Washington is trying to understand whether new sanctions can provoke a further escalation of tensions.

It is unclear whether they are trying to achieve it or, on the contrary, trying to avoid it, given how Kiev changed its belligerent rhetoric to a peaceful one literally in the last week.

As reported “Russian Spring”, Minister for the “Temporarily Occupied Territories” of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov said that Kiev does not want to “forcefully liberate” Donbass and repeat the tragedy of Bosnian Srebrenica.

Bloomberg reported last week that the White House completed a review Russia’s alleged “malicious acts”, by which we mean a hacker attack against SolarWinds and interference in elections.

According to sources, the introduction of new sanctions and the expulsion of Russian diplomats are considered among the retaliatory measures.
