Cyprus does not allow the European Union to impose sanctions against Belarus

The European Union cannot impose sanctions against Alexander Lukashenko's entourage due to the position of Cyprus, which has put forward its own demands. Frankfurter Allgemeine writes about this.


The planned sanctions against the Belarusian authorities cannot be imposed, since Cyprus opposed it. In Nicosia, they demanded that Brussels first impose penalties against Turkey, which is conducting illegal research in the Mediterranean Sea.

According to the newspaper, at the end of August, Cypriot Foreign Minister Nikos Christodulidis, answering the question of whether his country would support sanctions against Belarus without introducing anti-Turkish sanctions, said: "We do not want double standards."

In Europe, they consider the behavior of Cyprus unacceptable, since Brussels has already announced the imminent introduction of sanctions against Belarus, but cannot do this because of the position of Nicosia. The publication informs that European politicians intend to use sanctions to "increase pressure on the Belarusian authorities and show their solidarity with the population."

Frankfurter Allgemeine recalls that the presidential elections in Belarus were invalidated as the results were rigged. In this regard, the European Union intends to impose sanctions against the republic's authorities involved in these falsifications and harsh suppression of protests. At the same time, Lukashenko himself is not on the lists, since Brussels reserves the opportunity to toughen sanctions by introducing the president of the republic there.

      Of course, one's own shirt is closer to the body, and the fact that in the EU this way problems arise in their unity is very good.

      Cyprus takes advantage of the imperfection of EU legislation. The principle of taking a consolidated decision in the EU is like a time bomb, one country - one vote! This is how the vote belongs to Germany and, for example, Estonia, where the ratio of the capacity of the economies, the contribution to the total basket is 1 to 1000.

      A lot of "respected" and "disrespected" people hold their money in Cypriot offshores. Including from Belarus. Therefore, they show discerning concern for themselves as a money hub. After all, the sanctions against individuals directly relate to the ability to dispose of funds in accounts, property in the EU.
      A plus! Many of these respected people, along with large accounts, received Cypriot citizenship wink There was such a scheme, I bought a house - and well done ... Do not impose sanctions on some of its citizens.

      Plus: the issue of Turkey is acute, you need to forge iron on the spot bully Double standards are really tired wink

    Cool. The EU Commissioners decided and announced, then, on the basis of this, they demand a consensus from the participating countries.
    It's like in the late USSR, at meetings, basically, they voted just for show. All decisions were made by the presidium, in advance.

    These are not my words for the record, but for the soul. Cyprus is some kind of garbage dump, in which money is invested in offshore companies, and then lost, then the bandits receive gold passports, then people are given to America (or rather sold). Here, it is not for nothing that the Turks chopped off a part. At the same dishonest countries and their own disappears suddenly.
