Drudge Siren: Moscow threatens American Astronauts on ISS

In a significant political move, General Valery Gerasimov, chief of the Russian military general staff, has been added to the sanctions list for his responsibility “for the massive deployment of Russian troops along the border with Ukraine and lack of de-escalation of the situation”.

Following the announcement, Mr Rogozin said that fresh US sanctions against Moscow could compromise US astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS).

“If their aim is to deliver a blow to Russia’s rocket-building sector, then by default, they would be exposing their astronauts on the ISS,” the Interfax news agency quoted Mr Rogozin as saying in Crimea.

Nato said on Tuesday that it had seen no sign of Russian claims that tens of thousands of troops had withdrawn from close to Ukraine’s border to their permanent and established positions.

“We currently have no information that indicates a withdrawal of Russian troops from the Ukrainian border. We continue to urge Russia to abide by the Geneva agreement and to pull back all its troops along the Ukrainian border in favour of diplomacy and dialogue,” a Nato official told Reuters.
