(ok now this is personal fake news) Russian senator blasts new Canadian sanctions bill as underminin
up is down, black is white, and russia defends international law
Russian Senator Konstantin Kosachev said the Canadian law ‘On the victims of corrupt foreign governments’ undermines the foundation of international law, which should be agreed on voluntarily on the basis of mutually accepted principles.
“This is yet another confirmation of the existence of the dangerous tendency when national legislation is applied to international relations. This undermines the very foundation of international law that was built on agreed positions of various parties as well as on voluntary acceptance of some common rules,” Konstantin Kosachev, the head of the Upper House Committee for International Relations, wrote on his Facebook page on Thursday.
