The US consider sanctions against Ankara


1 the USA — Turkey The US have no plans to introduce economic sanctions against Turkey because of the decision to buy S-400 air defense systems from Russia — Donald Trump announced. He later clarified that the US are still considering an introduction of sanctions against Ankara, but there is no decision on this issue yet. Previously, the US have repeatedly threatened Turkey with economic sanctions for the purchase of the S-400s due to the ‘Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act’. Washington’s possible counter-measures include a cessation of Ankara’s participation in the F-35 program. Earlier, the Pentagon announced that by March of 2020, the Turkish participation in the program will be completely stopped. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the US refusal to deliver the purchased F-35s to Ankara as “robbery”.

Denmark issued a permit for the laying of the Norwegian gas pipeline »Baltic Pipe», made for the delivery of natural gas to Poland. The Danish Environmental Protection Agency issued the first permit for the construction of a gas pipeline on the eastern coast of Denmark — TASS reports. The last permit needed for the construction of the pipeline is the approval from the Danish authorities for the construction of the offshore section of the pipeline in the waters of the country.

4 the USA

The US Coast Guards need six new icebreakers in order to compete with Russia in the Arctic — said the deputy head of the US Coast Guards, Vice Admiral Daniel Abel, TASS reports. He mentioned that three of the six icebreakers should be big. Currently the US have only one icebreaker, Polar Star, and it turned 40 years old recently. The vice admiral noted that the Coast Guards expect to receive these ships as soon as possible, since Russia already has six bases in the Arctic, and six new icebreakers. The American plans of construction of six new icebreakers were announced in June of the last year. Back then, Donald Trump announced, at the ceremony of the change of the commander of the Coast Guards, that they will receive the first new heavy icebreaker for the past 40 years.
