EU will impose arms embargo against Venezuela

31
EU foreign ministers to introduce on Monday weapons embargo on Venezuela, reports RIA News.


Riots in Venezuela

“Foreign ministers without discussion will introduce restrictive measures against Venezuela against the background of the political crisis in the country. As expected, arms embargo will be approved, the supply of equipment that can be used for internal repression and electronic tracking is prohibited, ”the material says.

In addition, the ministers will approve a regulatory document that allows for individual sanctions to be imposed, if necessary, in connection with the situation in Venezuela. These include a ban on entry into the EU and freezing of assets located in the European Union.

Another issue on the agenda will be the so-called “strategic communications”, that is, activities to improve the image of the EU in the Eastern Partnership countries. In many ways, this program is aimed at countering Russia, which Brussels accuses of conducting disinformation campaigns.

For a working lunch, the ministers of defense will join the foreign ministers. The meeting will discuss the results of the efforts made for closer defense cooperation between the EU countries. One of the outcomes of these efforts will be permanent structured cooperation (PESCO), which is scheduled to launch in December at the EU summit.

PESCO, participation in which is voluntary, will allow countries to join efforts in working on various defense projects. Such projects will be able to receive funding from the European Defense Fund being created by the European Union.

      And what does the EU care about Venusuela


      it’s hard not to notice the US occupation of the EU and wondering what the EU is doing is illogical and to the detriment of personal interests for the past 20 years.

      because it’s hard to rock the boat when you are lying under someone. This can be seen in Japan. Iraq and other occupied countries. And Germany and the sanctions. SP2 and all that. They lose money, they recognize all this but cannot do anything. Because such a line at the regional committee

      And yes - I forgot about Ukroina. A very revealing example of how a country shoots itself in the foot as directed by US advisers

    that’s the whole goal ... as usual, a banal hap of someone else’s money is hidden behind democratic verbiage ... does anyone believe that this money will simply lie ????? in-ooooot !!!!!!!!! they will work bringing profit to the organizers of sanctions .... beauty !!!!

      hi The EU sanctions and embargo are a consequence of Trump's recent words about Venezuela at the APEC summit in Vietnam. The henchmen rushed to race to lick the legs and ass of the owner.

    For God's sake, all that is needed for the Venezuelan government will be supplied by Russia, China and Cuba. The main thing is to suppress the pro-American rebellion and clean out the fifth column at the root. And then you can think about the deployment of our military base.

    One of the main consumers of Russian weapons in Latin America is Venezuela. Russia supplies everything to Venezuela, tanks, MLRS systems, aircraft. Europe imposes sanctions against Venezuela, not only to change the government of the republic, but also in order to remove Russia from this arms market.

      So on the contrary, the EU gives the Venezuelan market completely to us by introducing sanctions against it.

    Venezuela wept with grief from such chaos, but for exactly a second. Russia and China will always be happy with such a combination of circumstances.

    Well, the EU will introduce restrictions, so what? A lot of Europe supplied weapons to this country? Who gave the EU such advice? And the answer, though with a sore point, is simple - of course, it could not have done without the United States. Venezuela has other channels for acquiring weapons.

    Someone thinks that Europe is independent in making such decisions? Well, well))) This, as in the case of Russia, imposed sanctions - consider losses, cry but are afraid to anger the "hegemon". So here, a signal came from a country embodying the "fiend of democracy" and the Europeans took the visor, although in fact everyone knows that Maduro is a legitimately elected president and is putting things in order in the country trying to prevent another Libya or Syria from appearing in Latin America . Lucky Masai in Africa because they have a lot of cow cakes and no oil. If they had oil, then there would have been no Masai.
