As the escalation of the conflict in Syria, Britain convinced the Western countries to impose on Russia a new sanctions if it does not cease to support President Assad.
Russia and Iran warned yesterday, April 9, that they will “respond with force” if the United States continues to inflict strikes on Syria. The Russian Embassy in London suggested that if Moscow will receive this week an ultimatum, it could lead to “real war”.
Boris Johnson (Boris Johnson), the Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain, demands that Western countries have developed a “very punitive” in response to the chemical attack on the area held by the rebels, which killed up to 90 people.

Mr Johnson wants the Seven issued a joint Declaration that Russia must stop supporting the Assad regime and to withdraw its forces from Syria to could return convoys with humanitarian aid. If President Putin refuses to fulfill these requirements, then against Russia, in addition to the already existing sanctions in connection with its invasion of Ukraine, will introduce new, the purpose of which is to “greatly complicate the life of” her

Mitch McConnell (Mitch McConnell), Senate majority leader, also said he will consider the possibility of tougher sanctions against both countries. The leaders of the UK, however, expressed doubt that the threat of imposing new sanctions will be able to exert the necessary influence. On the 10 Downing street does not comment on whether Theresa may (Theresa May) the initiative of Mr. Johnson on the introduction of new sanctions against Russia. One former diplomat said that the sanctions will not take effect until the West can not cope with gas dominance of Russia in Eastern Europe.
