Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny’s team has urged a fresh round of US sanctions over the war in Ukraine that moves beyond wealthy oligarchs to spread the financial pain to Russian government officials, mid-level politicians and public figures.

The group, which visited Capitol Hill, is discussing with senators a list of 6,000 people for possible sanctions, including Russian defence and security officials, administrative employees, governors, members of parliament, even editors and managers at state-aligned media operations.

What idiots like Greg Johnson don't understand is that this is almost always the case with many Eastern European "nationalists"; they coddle with Washington and Jews just because they have some historical grievance or disagree with their current national leadership.

They are simply wrong in doing this and we should never accept it or cheer for them doing it.
