CNN's Jim Sciutto speaks with the UK Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps about the new round of sanctions leveled against Russia, Russian media disinformation and targeting allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin. #CNN #News


    1. @Владимир Путин for your posts, you will receive extra turnip this month, all praise tsar putini the lesser…. ain’t that right botski

  1. Much more valuable than the yachts and jets themselve, is the message that seizing them represents.
    It would be unacceptable to let russia’s corrupt and powerful men continue to freely enjoy these millionaire assets.

    1. DAMN UK! 🇬🇧 You guys are usually almost as passive as Canada! 🇨🇦 … But now you’re straight up BEAST MODE! 😂 All… “Look at all our pretty new boats and planes!”… and s***! That was, literally, the entire story! 😂 I like it! 🇺🇸!

  2. Russia has been PUTIN a very difficult position, especially with the expansion of NATO now that Finland and Sweden are in.

  3. As a Brit I’m proud of our government for not cowering to the little Russian bully ..Despite , his bravado threats of using nuclear weapons on us and plunging the U.K. into the ocean..

    1. @Joy Simpson You show a huge willingness to be wilfully blinded.De Pfeffel’s got you exactly where he wants.

    2. @H K 😂😂😂😂😂I’m much obliged for the insightful deduction …. Cheerio 👋

  4. Hopefully other western governments do the same. “We could not allow Putin’s aggression to succeed.” So Powerful.

  5. I like how enthusiastic he gets when talking about the trains running on time in a war in Ukraine 🤣 immediately after saying he can’t get his trains on time in the UK

    1. Makes you wonder, why don’t the RU Ogliarchs build mansions in Syria? or North Korea? or Iran. How about Venezuela. Why don’t they take their money to those places?

    2. DAMN UK! 🇬🇧 You guys are usually almost as passive as Canada! 🇨🇦 … But now you’re straight up BEAST MODE! 😂 All… “Look at all our pretty new boats and planes!”… and s***! That was, literally, the entire story! 😂 I like it! 🇺🇸!

    3. Trains are really expensive here
      It’s more expensive to travel in the UK than flying around Europe or Turkey

  6. It’s kinda easy to reach such a high number in sanctioned wealth, if you were the main money launderer for the oligarchs. 😶

  7. I cannot wait to visit Ukraine one day when it is repaired. In the meantime I continue to donate and I love Ukraine and the strength and courage of the beautiful Ukrainian people!
    Slava Ukraine!!!!

    1. @blank somewhere save and make sure it’s getting too them and not a fraudulent scheme I donated in marks and Spencer’s store

    2. Do you think Ukraine will be able to recover after it was bombed by its own army? And where will the neo-Nazis go?

    3. @one+one I am sure the some off the nazis will find there way back too Russia alive or in body bags 💼

  8. Now the big question: How much of the cash received for these seizures will actually go to the Ukrainian people for rebuilding and re-supplying? A UK politician will take some of the money, a Ukraine politician will take some of the money, and anybody’s guess on other corruption. I’d like to see everything accounted for on spread sheets.

    1. There’s a handling fee, local taxes, stamp duties to be paid, sundries and not to mention their ‘cut’ so…

      not much!

  9. 5 bucks? (I’ll pay cash); “Seized” vs. “Confiscated”: when property is associated with the commission of a crime, the property can be legally confiscated as government property, “can be” offered for auction to the general public; funds generated can be dictated by associated government agencies.
    Seized property remains under the name of the owner; associated revenues generated can be transferred to the owner. (FWIW, “AFAIK”)

  10. Food for thought 🤔

    If the US had the power to freeze any leaders assets, who exactly is the bigger threat?

  11. Good news the UK is so hot on this, well done Grant Schapps.
    I wish the microphones were better balanced.

  12. Eugene Debs-
    “I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence.”

    1. Well said, that more than likely pertains to billions of people in this world today. ♥️🌎♥️
