Admiral of the US Army, former commander of NATO forces in Europe James Stavridis called for new sanctions against Russia up to a complete ban on the entry of Russians into the United States. He wrote about it in his article for Time magazine.
Stavridis believes that the current sanctions are not enough. He calls for new ones not only in relation to Russian business but also against culture, sports, diplomatic delegations. “Without a doubt, we suffered a direct blow at the hands of the Russians in the heart of our democratic system. And without a doubt, we did not respond much, in addition to a couple of symbolic gestures,” the American Admiral writes.
According to him, the report of special Prosecutor Robert Mueller allegedly confirms Moscow’s interference in the US presidential elections in 2016. Stavridis promised that the American side will continue to conduct in-depth work on the confrontation with Moscow.
In addition, he proposes to support Russians who seek democracy.
