BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 A.M.) – A U.S. federal court in Washington D.C. indicted five Russian and three Syrian businessmen for sending jet fuel to Syria while the country is under sanctions.

According to VOA News, the eight businessmen were indicted on Tuesday for money laundering and using a Crimean-based shipping company to send fuel to Syria.

“The U.S. sanctions on Syria and Crimea thwart Syria’s support of terrorism and its pursuit and use of weapons of mass destruction as well as the actions of those who seek to undermine Ukraine’s democratic processes and territorial integrity,” Assistant Attorney General John Demers said.

Along with the charges, the eight also face large fines.

The US claim no more than to own the world. These people were indicted for shipping fuel from Crimea which is part of Russia to Syria which is a Russian ally.

Tragically, Erdogan and company will face no sanctions or charges.

Don’t speak about what you haven’t, the only dïck you have is the pork’s one in your a$$. BTW, I’m not a Kike, I eat pork and have a foreskin, but for sure, I prefer to deal with Kikes than with reptiles of your specie: at least they have more than a peanut sized brain. Florian being Brit, the UK having anti racist laws, I really hope his country’s justice will go after him… BTW, he also spoke about a friend of his who murdered some IRA activist(s), if it wasn’t bullshït, he’s also the accomplice of a murderer by… Read more »

“The US claim no more than to own the world” => As Mitterrand said, “[they] are very voracious, very tough”… Thus, these businessmen should also be more backed by their government since extraterritorial sanctions go against international law, so USA can be sued before the WTO. By just threatening to sue USA this way, J.C. Juncker pushed Trump into amending the last set of US anti-Russian/Iranian sanctions to NOT TOUCH E.U. energy companies operating these countries… This should have been done before, e.g. when Yanks fined BNP-Paribas with $9.1bln for trade with Cuba and Venezuela. If both Russian and Syrian… Read more »

How does ripping off the Syrian people represent a victory? A lot of people are making money but its not the Syrians.

Ah, Russia can’t deliver Jet-Fuel?

Obviously you are talking about Israel’s getting cheaper fuel on gray market through Kurdish co-operation with ISIS in funneling stolen Iraqi and Syrian oil through Turkey (Erdogan clan) to Israel and of course it was war-profiteering. RUAF put a stop to it in short order while US/Nato countries supported it.

Yes disgusting. ErHOGan must think he’s entitled to rape Syria and Iraq economies.

Poroshenko, while being a jew is not a problem, being a Zionist/tool of a criminal cabal is of course. There is confusion on your part about the description of Fascist. See the Iron Law of Oligarchy and Mussolini’s making it a core of his Fascist rule with corporations goverment rule.

Neo-Nazi are cripto Jews now? Yeah, and so were Hassan al-Bana and Hajj Amin al-Husseini? LOL! BTW, I’m neither hasbara, nor your friend, we didn’t guarded the pigs together… Thus, all is wishable is seeing you catching hëll by all those you hate, especially the Kikes as you’re no better than ISIS, Hamas or the Nazis. Zionists never attacked my people, unlike al-Qaeda/M-Brotherhood, PLO, ISIS or Hebollah, period! Not speaking about the Hezbo cocaine ring we dismantled recently. For sure, Netanyahu can, and should, bomb Hezb, Hamas and PLO all day long for me, it’d just be the job our… Read more »

I am Russian and I can tell you all one thing only – we will stand by Syria and protect the Syrian people for as long as necessary. We are not going to allow the Americans to turn the whole region into an al-Qaeda wasteland and/or a huge Israeli settlement. No way.

I’m no Russian and I believe it’s in best interest of Syrian people for the state to remain whole. The Syrians are against the Muslim Brotherhood groups and prefer Secularist Assad regardless of his flaws. Some adore Assad, some tolerate him as the lesser of evils, others jihadist types/ expats hate him, and Kurds are separatists. I am aware Russian troops are stationed in the largest Christian town and they have kept the Jihadists at bay. For that I ‘m grateful. I want to believe they were placed there for the sole purpose to protect Christians but this town is… Read more »
