UPD: 05/07/2014 The Russian Foreign Ministry is furious with the “sanctions” of the Swiss college because of Ukraine
The Russian Foreign Ministry angrily criticized the response of the college director in Lausanne to an applicant from Russia, who addressed him on the issue of employment.
The text of the response was given by the Foreign Ministry on its Facebook page.
"" Good afternoon, Madame!
We have reviewed your candidacy and thank you for your trust.
Unfortunately, we cannot review your dossier positively.
Our philosophy does not allow to hire professors from the country:
- where the government illegally occupies the territory of another independent and free state,
- which incites and provokes a civil war in other countries by sending and arming provocateurs,
- whose president is constantly lying and does not respect either international law or the signed agreements;
- and whose people support their president with an approval rating of 70%.
These are our sanctions and our protest against the politics and war unleashed by Russia.
I wish you the best of luck in your quest, please accept the assurances of our highest consideration.
The comment of Russian officials, however, does not refute what is said in the answer. Criticism is rather built in the spirit of "the fool himself":
“Taking into account the categorical response of Mr. Director M. Freiburghaus, it must be assumed that not one of the 140 teachers of this educational institution is a citizen of the countries that bombed Yugoslavia, illegally invaded Iraq, unleashed the Libyan war, in various forms sponsored international terrorism in the North Caucasus and in Syria.
Otherwise, you might think that uniform colleges run Swiss colleges. By the way, can you study Russian citizens there? Naturally, not for free, but for “bloody money”? ”
At the same time, the Russian foreign ministry urged its supporters to spam on college mail.

UPD: 05/07/2014 The USA will introduce sanctions against Russia simultaneously with the EU and G7: This will have a big effect
The US will impose sanctions at the same time as the European Union and the G7, as this will have a greater effect.
Daniel Glaser, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Counter-Terrorism Financing, believes major international players need to unite.
"Our financial measures are stronger and more effective if implemented in multilateral cooperation. And this is especially true in the case of Russia, which is financially and economically substantially integrated into Europe and the G7 countries," said Glaser.
According to the American politician, the US government, together with partners, "is developing a strategy for applying the full range of instruments to influence the Russian economy if the Russian leadership continues to destabilize Ukraine, including trying to disrupt the presidential election this month."
Hide the money in offshore, according to Glazer, will not succeed, because the United States has many years of experience tracking secret financial transactions around the world.
Recall earlier, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that if Russia would sabotage the presidential election in Ukraine, the United States and the European Union would impose additional sanctions against the Russian Federation.

UPD: 05/07/2014 NBU forbade banks to carry out activities in Crimea until the end of the occupation
The Central Bank approved this decision because it does not have the ability to carry out banking regulation and supervision, currency control and state financial monitoring of banks in the Crimea.
The National Bank of Ukraine banned Ukrainian banks from operating in the Crimea until the end of the Russian occupation, according to the website of the National Bank, reports Tsenzor.NET with reference to zn.ua.
"The NBU Board was forced on May 6, 2014 to decide (temporarily until the end of the occupation) to cease further activities of Ukrainian banking institutions and their separate divisions in the specified territory," the message says.
The corresponding decision is enshrined in NBU Resolution No. 260.
According to the report, the central bank approved this decision, since it does not have the ability to carry out banking regulation and supervision, currency control and state financial monitoring of banks in the Crimea.
"The occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol disrupted the banking system in the region, which led to a threat to the interests of depositors and other creditors of banks," the report said.
The report notes that the further functioning of banks in the conditions of occupation will be a violation of the legislation of Ukraine due to the impossibility of such banks and their units to comply with the requirements of the legislation of Ukraine: in view of this, many banks have actually been forced to suspend or cease operations in Crimea.
The NBU reminded that in accordance with the law on ensuring the rights and freedoms of citizens in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine, the responsibility for the compensation of material damage caused as a result of temporary occupation to legal entities and individuals is fully vested in the state carrying out the occupation.
