Pushkov about the U.S. sanctions against Russia on Syria: look the logic is impossible


The U.S. has long been gone and the principles of international law and the principles of common sense and to look for direct logic in their actions is absolutely impossible, said the head of the international Committee of the state Duma Alexei Pushkov.

MOSCOW, 25 Nov. The head of the international Committee of the state Duma Alexei Pushkov believes that looking for logic in the sanctions list of the USA is absolutely impossible, including new — for Syria, they’re long gone from the principles of international law and common sense.

The U.S. Treasury Department on Wednesday expanded sanctions on Syria. The list includes, in particular, the President of the International chess Federation (FIDE) Kirsan Ilyumzhinov and the Bank “Russian financial Alliance”.

“Search direct logic, legal logic in the actions of the United States is absolutely impossible. The U.S. has long been gone and the principles of international law and the principles of common sense. They commit arbitrary acts and declare them legal. We must understand that this is not the case,” Pushkov said on air of TV channel “Russia 24”, commenting on the extension of U.S. sanctions on Syria.
