Putin warns US ‘you are in violation of EVERYTHING’ – Washington on ALERT

RUSSIA has issued the US with a dire warning after Donald Trump imposed a raft of harsh new sanctions. The Kremlin told Washington this afternoon the US is in violation of “anything and everything”.


From Politico “I’m very scared,” Ioffe tells me of the brewing confrontation between the two blustery leaders. “The reason I’m scared is because… in the Cold War there were kind of protocols and rules developed and lines of communication, and there were just—the way things were done. … Now … you have two guys, Trump and Putin, who are both painted into a corner, strategically, both at home and geopolitically, who are very prideful. Both very kind of emotional knee-jerk decision makers, to an extent. And I worry that they’re both going to start clawing their way out of their respective corners and that that’s going to lead to a lot of collateral damage.”
