    US Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland said that Russian actions in Syria should not influence the decision on sanctions against Russia.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Russia’s announcement about the withdrawal of the main part of its air forces from Syria should not impact the decisions related to anti-Moscow sanctions over Ukraine, US Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland said at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Tuesday.

    “We continue to look at the Syria theatre and at the Ukraine theatre as two separate places. We will judge the Ukraine action based on what is done in Ukraine and as you know the sanctions are linked to Ukraine. So from our perspective what is done in Syria should not impact choices about Ukraine,” Nuland stated.
