    Just a while ago the Congress passed and President Trump signed a new package of sanctions against Russia. Both the Democrats and Republicans took part in developing the new restrictive measures. The Congress unanimously supported the bill and Trump approved it with his signature.

    It is a known fact that President Trump is on bad terms with Congress owing to his willingness to breathe new life into the US-Russia relations, yet the sanctions were just as inevitable as Trump's signature on the bill regardless of his personal disapproval of it. All media sources widely covered this news. However, it is very hard to understand why all mainstream media ignored the participation of third parties in drafting the new sanctions. In this case we are speaking about the visit of Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko to Washington and his unofficial negotiations there. Breitbart News presented its own investigation.


    Many take a dim view of Breitbart, but Poroshenko's words in his official Twitter about some agreements he achieved during his Washington trip should, at least, put the global media on the alert. In this case Breitbart News was the only agency that looked into the issue and presented its inquiry unlike the mainstream media which displayed their bias once again.

    Oh, just my my personal opinion. Poroshenko is a clown, nothing more. Trade between Russia and Ukraine was only increased in 2016. Real target of sanctions is Europe. "Make America great again" means "F-ck EU".
