RUSSIA SANCTIONS ’A JOKE’ SAYS CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER

Fox News on March 18, 2014, reported that the “joke” sanctions the United States has imposed against Russia for its annexation of Crimea deservedly have earned mockery from Russian officials, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said on “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

“The sanctions [President Obama] imposed yesterday are risible,” Krauthammer said. “Everybody understands that these sanctions are a joke.”

Krauthammer cited the rise in the Russian stock market as evidence the sanctions are not being taken seriously,…

At the same time, there are “real sanctions” the Obama administration could impose on the Russian economy, he said.

Krauthammer blamed the crisis response on a lack of leadership at the White House.
