Amerikaanse. amptenare het na bewering besluit om die 38-jarige Russiese gimnas en Olimpiese gouemedaljewenner Kabaeva teen die sanksionering te gee, met verwysing na kommer dat dit te drasties was, het die Wall Street Journal Sondag berig.
Koffler, 'n voormalige Amerikaanse. DIA intelligence officer focused on Russia and the author of “Putin’s Playbook: Russia’s Secret Plan to Defeat America,” told Jesse Watters on Monday that the move would “certainly hurt” Poetin, both from a personal and financial standpoint.
“Ongelukkig, she is not capable of stopping Putin from waging war on Ukraine. Maar, it will certainly hurt,” Koffler said. “It will make her life miserable, and it will definitely, definitely [cause] some damage to his holdings, his wealth that is stashed away in all kinds of tax havens including spread among his relatives and family.”
Koffler said the reasoning for U.S. officials not to sanction Kabaeva – who is believed to be the mother of at least three of Putin’s children – makes “no sense.”
“The Treasury and the State Department have put together a Draconian sanctions package, but then the Biden Administration has backed out at the last minute, and this is completely ridiculous because they have already done so much rhetoric that it is perceived by the Russians as a total war on Russia, believe it or not,” Koffler said. Putin is portraying himself as the victim, so not sanctioning [Kabaeva] makes no sense.”
Watters said freezing Kabeva’s bank accounts, terwyl “unorthodox,” could be the proper course of action to hit Putin close to home.
“She can’t get her beef Wellington, she can’t get her massages, she can’t go skiing, she can’t even fill up her little car with petrol as they call it over there,” die “Waarom smeek die Oekraïne vir hulp van Biden” gasheer gesê. “That is the move, I think that’s a big move we should seriously consider and deploy because right now, it is just destruction in that country. We have to try something unorthodox.”
