    Russia Warns of Consequences and Threatened with Fresh Sanctions from US due to Putin's Crimea Move

    Vladimir Putin was condemned by the White House for this act and it was said that Russia is getting prepared for the fresh round of sanctions as a result of the most awful East-West crisis since the Cold War.

    As per Putin’s statement, he is not into seizing any other part of Ukraine. Besides this Kerry warned that it could be a major challenge for the international community if any further step is taken by Russia for the invasion of any other part of Ukraine.

    The resident of Crimea made their independent choice in line with the UN charter and the international law, which was respected and accepted by Russia. As per the statement of a Russian foreign ministry, “while the sanctions introduced by the United States and the European Union are unacceptable and will not remain without consequences.”

    Putin, in reference to the Lavrov’s remarks said, “Western attempts to frighten Russia with sanctions would be viewed as an act of aggression, and that Moscow would retaliate.” Kerry paraphrased the position of Washington saying the takeover of Crimea and the referendum were unacceptable and illegal. Moreover, Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman said, “We don’t accept them and there will continue to be costs and consequences,” she told a daily briefing. “We are continuing to prepare additional sanctions and we haven’t taken options off the table.”
