All normal channels of collaboration between the United States and Russia have been cut off, including a wide range of critical issues, Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak said on Tuesday.
Kislyak added that the United States and Russia once had a bilateral commission of 21 working groups focused on science, technology, military, nuclear and other issues, which no longer exists. “All the normal channels of cooperation between states [US and Russia] are frozen,” Kislyak stated.
While neither country has recalled its Ambassador for consultations, which would be the final step before armed conflict, SuperStation95 has been given a "heads-up" to watch for exactly such a development.

In Europe, when it gets serious, you have to lie... at least if you are an unelected bureaucrat like Jean-Claude Juncker. In Russia, however, when it gets serious, attention immediately turns to the children.
Which is why we read a report in Russian website Znak published Tuesday, according to which Russian state officials and government workers were told to bring back their children studying abroad immediately, even if means cutting their education short and not waiting until the end of the school year, and re-enroll them in Russian schools, with some concern. The article adds that if the parents of these same officials also live abroad "for some reason", and have not lost their Russian citizenship, should also be returned to the motherland. Znak cited five administration officials as the source of the report.
