    M421 - Russian Sanctions Motion 2017, TSR UKIP

    This House Recognizes That:
    • The United Kingdom currently participates in economic sanctions on the Russian Federation in coordination with the European Union.
    • That these sanctions have been ineffective in deterring Russian aggression.
    • That these sanctions have failed to harm the targeted oligarchs of the Russian Federation.
    • That these sanctions have harmed the ordinary Russian people, who were not targeted.
    • That these sanctions have led to more resentment of the West by the Russian people, and negatively impacted relations.
    • That these sanctions have negatively impacted the UK economy.


    This House urges:
    • That the government commits itself to not resume sanctions on the Russian Federation.
    • That the government forges better relations with President Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government for the mutual benefit of both nations.

    Whilst your wrong about the economy i dont see how having a broken relationship with Russia is a good thing, its time we worked together and had more cooperation. Someone needs to put their hand out first, i think the UK would do it best.

    I believe so - though it's obviously immensely rare.

    The sanctions against Russia are pathetic and don't help anybody. It's about time the West stopped treating Putin like a naughty little child and stopped using Russia as a scapegoat for all the world's problems.

    Abstention cannot win, it can get the most votes but cannot win, the winner is a binary matter, either it passes, with more ayes than noes, or it doesn't.

    Aye, It's time to get rid of these sanctions against Russia. I would also say that Russia should get East Ukraine.
