EU extended economic sanctions against Russia

63
The EU has extended economic sanctions against the Russian Federation at least until July 31 2018. This was announced today the highest political body of the EU - the European Council.


EU extended economic sanctions against Russia


The extension of the sanctions in the council argued that "the Minsk agreements are still not fully implemented."

The European Union imposed restrictive measures against Moscow in 2014, against the backdrop of the reunification of the Crimea with Russia and the situation in the Donbas. This, in particular, is about personal sanctions against the citizens of Russia and Ukraine, whom Brussels accuses of undermining the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the republic. The black list also includes legal entities.

EU restrictions apply to the Crimea. For example, citizens and companies from the EU countries cannot import products from the Crimea and invest in the economy of the peninsula.

Political coordination of the next extension of the sanctions took place on December 14 at the EU summit. 28 members of the union for the first time showed complete unanimity on the issue of anti-Russian sanctions, said the head of the European Council, Donald Tusk.

        I have long been offended by the pro-American “laying” countries in the EU! What can be expected from a disposable “sanitary pad”? Served the hostess - and will be thrown away!

      All these sanctions have already learned to safely circumvent (for example, on Siemens generators). Does the EU seriously believe that we will give up Crimea and persuade Poroshenko not to shoot in Donetsk until July 31 of next year? lol

        It is even more pleasant to look at the sour mug of the "geniuses of the Gaidar" from the HSE and the economic block of DAM, who argued that we do not need to produce our own because the West has this "everything". In their opinion, the Russian people should have - to consume exclusively what the West produced, to get drunk on unemployment and die out. Now these “geniuses” themselves are praying that they did not have time to finish everything completely, which allowed them to produce the most necessary things, and the “partners”, imposing sanctions, could not knock out leather chairs from under their fifth point. Now they are simply saddened by the fact that it has become more difficult to convince Russians that "the West will help us."

          This year, Poland imported about 1000 tons of apple juice from Russia.

          The agricultural cooperative "Vegetables of Kaliningrad" (trademark "Naturovo Agrofactory") began supplying apple juice to neighboring Poland. The first batch of 18 thousand liters was sent there recently, TASS reports citing the press service of the Kaliningrad region government.
          Russia takes the 5th place by apple harvest in the world (however, a large importer of juice / concentrate from China and other countries)
          China increased its apple production by 600 thousand tons, as a result of which the gross harvest of these fruits in the country amounted to 44,5 million tons
          US crop totaled 4,7 million tons, down 260 thousand tons
          The harvest of apples in 2016 amounted to about 1,3 million tons in the Russian Federation.
          Abnormal weather in Poland led to the fact that the Polish apple has doubled in price - to 0,44-0,55 euro / kg, compared with last year
          In general, the failed apple season in the EU

      All these sanctions are populism. As all the crap went to us and will go. No one will give up profits. Only in Belarus and Kazakhstan unprecedented profits from the supply of supposedly their products. We learned to survive, everyone has cellars and pantries. We would also have declared a ban on the entry to us of all of our teachers and their colorful friends, and no Western propaganda to us. We will live dark and uneducated, without their "values." Everything is fine, the main thing is to continue to raise our production and build up. And it’s time to ban the export of unprocessed materials, round timber for example ...

        Thanks to the import of sugar (processed imported raw materials) from Kazakhstan and Belarus, the sugar industry has slipped so much that it does not know when it will go up. All producers and processors are on the verge of survival due to falling prices, but suppliers in Kazakhstan and Belarus are all in chocolate . All our neighbors still largely live off of Russia.

    The extension of the sanctions in the council argued that "the Minsk agreements are still not fully implemented."

    The fact that the decisions of the Minsk agreements are not implemented is the fault of France and Germany, as curators and sponsors of Kiev. In the agreements there is not a single word about Russia's participation in the confrontation between Ukraine and the republics of the LPR and the DPR. With regards to the so-called sanctions, it’s a pure response from the West to participate in the normalization of the situation in the southeast of the former Ukraine and unwillingness to “get their hands dirty” in resolving an explosive situation. Russia, as a guarantor on the part of LDNR, needs to decide on the official recognition of the independent republics, and not to pedal the "sorrows" of the sanctions, we lived with them and will continue to live.

    So I would play on this.
    Retaliatory sanctions should apply to part of the EU countries and goods from them (especially harsh ones), and I would remove the sanctions on some countries. Of course, everything should be negotiated to avoid fakes and labeling. Some countries should be sanctioned for life, others as a warning .

    Russia, the heir to the USSR, a century later confirms the thesis that it can develop as a separate state, as the USSR built socialism in a single state. And a hundred years ago transnational corporations traded in spite of sanctions and embargoes ... they wanted to get rid of all the quacks of their politicians, the loot is more important to them ... to which they lobby their interests.

      You are right, but this is a double-edged sword and for the sake of completeness, there is not enough photo of the sagging Russian budget. After all, then we will lose a large chunk of profit + will have to start a judicial war on the case of non-fulfillment of long-term contracts. Europe will begin to feverishly replace our gas, our competitors will start us displace, and we will pay the space fines. What really is there.
      THEREFORE, the sanctions weren’t affected. The European “Krupnyak” is well aware of the strategic importance of energy security for itself and although it tries to be prepared to abandon Russian gas in various ways, it’s not a quick matter. When this dependence is overcome, it will be possible to fully it’s serious to say that Europe is ready for war with Russia. And as long as the gas umbilical cord binds us, there will be no war.

        We all squeak: Cold War 2.0

        Yes, I see fighting with us. THEY.
        And we only accept (even with the consulate and RT: they are in our building, we have a barn, they are our RT, we are the "voice of America" ​​and then almost a year later)

    This is good news!
    And when we will demolish it in the Donbass and they want to lift the sanctions, we will refuse to lift them - we will say that our economy is already adapted to them, and that we do not want to be lifted. And if they dare to take off, then we will demand compensation)) What and how - we will have to think about it ..

    I don’t understand one thing. We won’t be able to live without the EU? Why are we imposing ourselves on them? Why do we all want to prove to them that we are good! And the more we prove to them, the more nasty things they do to us! And then he drew attention to where the families of our officials and deputies live, and everything immediately fell into place. Until people come to power whose families live and study in Russia, they will mock us before the revolution.

    Sanctions, sanctions ... For Crimea, for Donbass, for hackers ... Maybe someone will give an idea to the European Union for what else can sanctions be imposed? For birch trees, for example (for Poland), for Russian oranges laughing , which we have just unmeasured (for France and Spain) ... Here you can go out for a long time. In my opinion, introducing sanctions against Russia on far-fetched pretexts is the same as beating a cockroach in the face. You won’t see pain in his faceted eyes ...

    Habitually repeated the echo .... Cuba still lives under sanctions. But we are not Cuba. And there are resources and production. The meaning of the sanctions is somehow not clear. Trying to squeeze us out of EU markets? Well, so they lose our markets. Hope that our rich begin to moan and rush to Europe? Well, it can certainly happen here, although the very rich ones have already cut through - in Europe they are not expected. It is better to be rich in Russia and not depend on the go-ahead of the “partners”.
