EU extended for six months, economic sanctions against Russia

42
The European Union on Wednesday officially extended for six months the economic sanctions against Russia expiring on July 31, reported RIA News source in the EU.

The interlocutor of the agency, who wished to remain anonymous, said that the decision was made.

Chairman of the European Council Donald Tusk 22 June said that the heads of state and government of the EU member states at the summit made a political decision to extend the current economic sanctions against the Russian Federation for six months. Then a written procedure was launched to formally confirm the decision, without involving meetings.

EU extended for six months, economic sanctions against Russia


Relations between Russia and the West have deteriorated due to the situation in the Crimea and Ukraine. At the end of July 2014, the EU and the United States moved from targeted sanctions against individual individuals and companies to measures against entire sectors of the Russian economy. The EU summit in March 2015 of the year linked the duration of economic sanctions with the full implementation of the "Minsk agreements".

In response to the measures taken by the West, Russia restricted the import of food products from countries that have imposed sanctions on it: the United States, the EU states, Canada, Australia and Norway. Moscow has repeatedly stated that it considers it absurd to link the sanctions to the implementation of the Minsk agreements on Ukraine, since Russia is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and the subject of settlement agreements. Moscow has also repeatedly stated that speaking with the Russian Federation in the language of sanctions is counterproductive.

        I do not like this Yeltsin "Russians." Humiliating and insulting. I am Russian. And who is the Russian? What kind of people, what nationality? Such a caller couldn’t come to Russian mind. Even drunk, given the addictions of EBN.
        Earlier in the 1917 of the year, no one was called names in Russia. During the USSR, too. The same people lived. And so they survived ...

          If the sanctions were extended, then the West has confidence in our dependence on them.
          The sanctions will be removed (or forgotten by quiet sadness) only after the realization in the west of our economic independence. With the government of Dima, this does not shine for us. hi
          And the people rallied the sanctions. So that they are a joy to our leadership.
          The bottom line is consensus. laughing

            Ha! In the West, with their own sanctions, like established toy trains, they circle and circle in circles on the floor along the same political economic “rails”.
            Who from the USA and the Bilderberg Club will allow them in the EU to lift sanctions ?! None!!!

              Confidence in the West is 100%! only they have long money at low rates. If we are going to grow cucumbers - sanctions are only to our benefit. If we are going to modernize the industry, introduce advanced technologies, then with sanctions this is impossible. So, we made a choice!


              It’s a pity they didn’t put commas, and so they wrote everything about the case, except - "we made a choice" - here practically nothing depends on us.
              I don’t understand this joy squeezed out by comrades.

              It is clear that the sanctions will not be lifted, but there’s nothing to be happy about.

              Nonsense ... no loans taken from the beginning of the nineties didn’t go to any development, the industry was mostly crushed, the fleet and the army were destroyed for this money, and the debts grew and grew. The loans were mainly taken by our own banks, which they in turn, they lent to smaller banks and businesses, earning ample interest.
              That is, money, but that’s why it doesn’t work in the country, but invested in US papers, that’s not quite clear.
              In general, living on credit is always the wrong approach. And to deal with accumulations, which then plug holes, too.
              Money should work and work due to its own money, not strangers.

              And all sorts of investments and loans there will lead to the fact that we generally remain with a bare ass. Germany is kind of like a developed country. Only here, its industry is more than 80 percent owned by the Americans, and the Germans themselves are talking about this. And ve also began with loans and investors.

          During the USSR they said "Soviet people." And the Russians are probably Russians, Tatars, Chechens, and so on.

            But what do you call Turks in Germany - Germanic? or the Germans? And the Arabs in France are of course French!
            do not confuse citizenship and nationality, and the column in the Passport of Russia must be returned! in the multinational USSR, it was and no one was mostly embarrassed.
            Yes, there were some Jews who recorded themselves as Belarusians, Ukrainians, less often Russians because the choice of nationality was voluntary, but do such Jews condemn the respect of even the Jews themselves? I doubt it!

            I wrote that during the USSR, the word "Russians" did not call anyone anyone. If you taught geography, then perhaps remember that the peoples inhabiting the territory of Russia at the moment lived in the RSFSR. And no one called the inhabitants of the RSFSR "Russians." At the same time, the inhabitants of the Ukrainian SSR were called Ukrainians, the Byelorussian SSR - Belarusians, etc.
            But to you, a Russian, and not a Russian, a test, for an immediate response! love

      absolutely precisely from the experience of post-war Serbia. sanctions of 1995 - 1999. a sharp revival of the economy, breathing became easier. domestic products Completely seized the shelves of stores. and now without sanctions it is bad. all is sold to foreigners. Now horror-in sunflower oil, meat, water at 10%. home producer chokes under pressure from european corporations. sanctions are a good chance for the Russian manufacturer to build muscle. and for those who don’t understand what it’s about, look at the composition of their products and that de .. from Europe, not the highest but of the average price rank, I don’t advise trying. in dairy products, for example, 25% by weight with a long statute of limitations. sausages. sausage with 15% ground bones. Dear Russians, you don’t understand how lucky you are. ALL foreigners (normal, not bureaucrats) are envious of you in this regard and do not understand you. Do not appreciate it. for food of RUSSIAN quality in Europe you need to pay 2/3 of the salary. but big macaques and the like 6 Euro -5 pieces. and does not rot. does not deteriorate. eat to the dump laughing

        Hi Aleksey.
        Not so much to the evil of the grandmother, but to the joy of the grandfather - the goat-bearded Sam. In overseas, sweaty little hands rubbed: "Well, a little more, a little more, if Gazprom would crush and we would be happy - it’s a complete blunder, and there we’ll fall on the energy with the help of European lackeys."

Europe, of course, lackeys and degenerates, but, I think, not enough to completely underestimate .... As long as there is Russia, Yamal and Gazprom, America does not shine with gas in Europe .....

    They need to write some kind of program for the computer so that it prints a document on the extension of sanctions once every half a year and everyone signs it stupidly. And we make a script for our media on the servers so that once every half a year they publish the same article about this EPOCHAL event. And harmony will come :)

    I was Soviet, now it is not clear who, like a subject of the Russian Federation. And sanctions are double-edged weapons. So they feel their weakness. And ours, with the Chinese and others, need to develop an alternative world, because LGBT people have already entered the sport. A man with cut-off quandals with biological women competes. Well, where is it? And we are all humiliated, bent. Anyway, after 10 years, the West will turn everything into an absurdity, into a circus with horses.

    It is time to introduce the most severe sanctions against France and Germany, simultaneously recalling the ambassadors from there.

      It is better to do this in the fall, so that by winter the reserves in the underground gas storage facilities, which will last for 2-3 months, will be used up. Of course, this step will destroy the reputation of Gazprom as a reliable supplier of energy resources, but will also lead to a collapse of the EU economy. They will be forced to buy LNG from the Americans, which is twice as expensive as our gas. The cessation of deliveries will lead to the shutdown of part of the production, otherwise gas will not be enough for the population, which will freeze in the cold winter. Yes, we will also suffer greatly, but THEIR direct losses will be measured in the hundreds of billions of euros, and indirect ones (the need for urgent purchase of LNG) will amount to trillions.

    Something sanctions are somehow sluggish, have already been introduced and have not been canceled. Russia itself will solve its problems, but sanctions help us solve their problems faster. It is necessary to fix the law in the State Duma, and even if the EU is canceled. It is necessary to wake up writing in a European court so as not to be canceled. Russia, if it wants, will do everything without them, we have enough Kulibins, only our inventions did not get to these wolves. In 90, our corrupt liberals, for a penny our inventions sold. Then again they will bite each other, why the sanctions were taken. Not when we don’t surrender Crimea to the people — now these sanctions are forever.
