The state Department urged Europe to carefully follow the sanctions against Russia
WASHINGTON, November 28 — RIA Novosti. Europe needs to make its sanctions imposed against Russia because of the situation around Ukraine, more efficient, said state Department spokesman Heather Nauert.
“Many European countries have imposed sanctions against Russia over its actions in Crimea in Ukraine. As I said experts, not all of these sanctions are fully implemented. This is one aspect where European countries can do more,” said Nauert at the briefing.
We wish our European allies to do more to help Ukraine. The US government takes a very strong stance on her support… I don’t want to say that the United States bear the burden, but they deal with this issue mostly alone.
Nauert also said that European countries must go through “Nord stream-2”, needs to think again, if he needed it, as this project “helps the Russian authorities.”
Relations between Russia and the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine and around the Crimea. The West is accusing Russia of meddling has imposed sanctions against it. In July 2014, the European Union and the United States from the point of sanctions against certain individuals and companies have moved to measures against entire sectors of the economy. Russia has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine and the subject of the Minsk agreements.
