Facebook should talk with Bing...

Again, Bing is way off. So is Google (though it doesn't have Bing's problem of converting any noun-noun set into a genitive string!) (but didn't get the verb "put off, postpone" right! - "puts sanctions" != "puts off sanctions"):
"На словах политики обещают все новые экономические кары России, на деле — торгуются между собой, кто должен первым начать карать": почему Евросоюз откладывает санкции против России

Bing: "In the words of politicians promise more economic cars in Russia, in fact, are traded among themeselves who should firs begin to punish": why the EU postpones sanctions against Russia
Google: "In words, politicians promise all new Russian economic punishment, in fact - are traded among themselves, who should be the first to begin to punish": why the European Union puts sanctions against Russia

Really:"In words, politicians promise more new sanctions against Russia; in fact, they dicker with each other over who should be first to begin to punish" : why the EU is holding off on sanctions against Russia
(edited to correct the error noted in the comments)
And really, Bing - кар (kar) = car? Really? You got the verb (to punish)!

Your transcriptions for Bing and Google are identical. Is this a copy-and-paste error?

Er, yes. I meant to edit the Google one to match the text in the image and forgot.
