The U.S. President Donald Trump ordered to prolong anti-Russian sanctions for the aggression in Ukraine for another year, as the press office of the White House reported.

“The actions and policies of the Government of the Russian Federation with respect to Ukraine undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets,” the message reads.

Therefore, the national emergency declared on March 6, 2014 and measures taken then, including those adopted on March 16, 20 and December 19, 2014 were prolonged for one more year to deal with this emergency. Besides, the measures imposed by Trump’s Administration on September 20, 2018 were also extended.

“The actions and policies of the Government of the Russian Federation, including its purported annexation of Crimea and its use of force in Ukraine, continue to undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets,” the press office informed.
