Sanctions américaines contre la Russie: l'action la plus dure depuis la fin de la guerre froide

Une décision de l'exécutif que le Président Trump pourrait annuler, mais le message est clair et les sanctions sérieuses. L'administration Obama promettait de bouger depuis un bon moment en réaction au piratage russe. Je m'explique difficilement comment Donald Trump peut balayer cette affaire du revers de la main. Plusieurs républicains importants ont appuyé la décision d'Obama, le jeu partisan se limitant à critiquer le délai entre le piratage et les sanctions.

 "The new measures include sanctions on two Russian intelligence agencies, three companies that are believed to have provided support for government cyber operations, and four Russian cyber officials. The two agencies named are the GRU, Russia’s military spy service, and the FSB, the civilian spy agency that grew out of the KGB.

The administration has also ordered 35 Russian operatives to leave the United States and will shut down Russian-owned facilities on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and on Long Island in New York believed to have been used for intelligence purposes.

State Department spokesperson Mark C. Toner said the diplomatic retaliation was partly a response to Russian provocations against American personnel in Russia, including “arbitrary police stops, physical ­assault, and the broadcast on State TV of personal details about our personnel that put them at risk.”
