EU approved renewal of sanctions against Russia

48
The heads of the EU member states at a meeting on Thursday made a political decision to extend the effect of economic sanctions against Russia, expiring at the end of January 2018, transmits RIA News the message of the Chairman of the European Council Donald Tusk.




The EU unanimously advocates the extension of economic sanctions against Russia,
Tusk wrote on his Twitter.

Now we need a technical procedure for the approval of sanctions by the EU Council.

According to a source agency close to the EU leadership, this decision is expected next week.

As previously stated by the representatives of the European Union, sanctions without any changes will be extended for the next six months.

Recall that the EU introduced economic restrictive measures against the Russian Federation in the summer of 2014 on the background of the crisis that broke out in Ukraine and later expanded them. The leaders of the EU member states in March 2015 of the year tied their validity to the full implementation of the Minsk agreements and extend them every 6 months.

            And no one in Russia expects anything else! The United States will cleanse Russia and local European competitors from a pro-American trans-Atlantic market in Europe created for itself in its favor! Officials in Brussels are all sitting on their own American grannies! All the rest of the globalizers in Brussels consider fools!
            Russian "hello" to them all with a brush!

                  Hi Dima! hi If Europe dances to the tune of the United States and incurs losses from sanctions, this is her business. Already there were figures on losses from sanctions in the USA, Russia and the EU. And these figures would make the sane think: "What the hell am I for?"

              If you look at the history of the use of tools to influence through destabilization on the state, you can see the following:
              if "soft" means like color revolutions, etc. do not bring the desired effect, then direct and more aggressive ones are used.
              It seems that Russia has withstood the first phase and now the second is possible.
              I hope that a solution can be found without aggressive methods from the new Entente.
              although if Stalin, with his experience and apparatus, was unable to divert the blow from his country, then this will be difficult today.

                only Europe was there more than once, and almost always only horns and hooves returned from these rams, at best, Europe remembers that it will slow down in the desire to fly to the slaughterhouse again.

    It is quite obvious that the RUSSIAN economy will develop taking into account the sanction load ... it slows down the progress but does not stop.

    In this case, the GDP and the government of RUSSIA must make sure that all the costs of sanctions should not be borne by the people of RUSSIA but the people of EUROPE ...
    that is, losses must be covered at the expense of corporations in GERMANY. FRANCE, ITALY. Baltic States, etc.
    there is an unplowed field for all kinds of markups on goods and services for EUROPE and the USA.
    smile Everything is like on the market ... blocked by a truck the movement in the aisle, pay for losses and for lost profits.

    recognize the Russian Crimea-extend sanctions "for the oppression of penguins."
    the lag in research and development of Antarctica (for example, Greece must be saved from default now) will require finding a reason
    the loot is looking for markets. Antarctica market is promising. Who is in the lead while in the study? and after 20 years, the Russian Federation will take its place in mining and oil industry. and stake out the best areas for wind energy?
    HERE AND REASON FOR THE PROTECTION OF PENGUINS - DON'T RISK TO INVEST IN ANTARCTICA DEVELOPMENT, SO BECOME ADDITIONAL TO "EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES" AGAINST TOTALITARISM

    It is necessary to break ALL relations with the geyropa! To send to hell from our country all of their diplomats, BUSINESSMEN, representatives of NGOs and the local liberda. Say that they are achieving this? There is absolutely nothing terrible in the Iron Curtain, on the contrary, relying on internal forces allows you to reach unprecedented heights in economics, science and art. The USSR has always been under sanctions, but the whole world knows about its achievements, and post-Soviet Russia cannot even defend its athletes at the Olympic Games. If a game is imposed on us according to Western rules, then there is only one way out - we must create our own! You will say that we do not have allies, but after all, Soviet Russia also did not have them in the early 20s ...

    Well, straight. These are your dreams, my friend. The ruling class shifts all its costs to a simple Russian. They even offer us to pay for de-offshorization. The oligarchs say they say we will return the money to Russia, but let Russia pay us for this. That is, in translation, you have to pay us for the money stolen from you. This is the logic of the rekitir from the 1990s.

    "The EU approved the extension of sanctions against Russia." The title lacks one pretext and one word "with joy", reflecting the voluntary dibilization of the EU member states: "The EU gladly approved the extension of sanctions against Russia."
