Cyprus hinders the introduction of anti-Belarusian sanctions by the US and the EU

Cyprus again did not allow the introduction of sanctions against Belarus. Against this backdrop, the United States called on Nicosia to drop its objections to this issue and to join the imposition of restrictive measures. Western media write about this with reference to the statement of the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs George Kent.


During a visit to Brussels, a representative of the US State Department called on Cyprus to join the pan-European sanctions against Lukashenka and the Belarusian authorities and give its consent to the introduction of restrictive measures. At the same time, he said that the United States had already prepared its own sanctions against Belarus and was ready to announce them, but would like to introduce them simultaneously with the European Union.

We called on them to join the consensus to allow the EU to move forward, so that it is a common, agreed-upon, like-minded approach. The original plan was to announce them in parallel this week. We expect clarity from European leaders whether they can make a decision

Kent added.

As previously reported, on Monday, the foreign ministers of the EU countries were unable to make a decision on sanctions against Belarus. Once again, Cyprus was opposed, which defends its position that restrictive measures should also be introduced against Turkey. It is expected that the issue of anti-Belarusian sanctions will now be considered at the end of the week at the level of heads of state and government.

    ... the US has already prepared its own sanctions ...

    These sanctions are being prepared along with the scenarios of "color revolutions". Similar to the medium-range missile tested immediately after leaving the INF Treaty.

      Cyprus reminds me of the toilet from the cartoon WEATHER. How was the wheel crane smashing houses, everything with one blow, except for the street toilet :)), it had to be driven into the ground :))

      These sanctions are contrary to the "Budapest Memorandum"
      Moreover, the United States first violated it back in 2004.

      Therefore, they have no right to demand its implementation by Russia in relation to Ukraine.

      Politics is a dirty business.
      Cyprus is bargaining with the EU to achieve its goals on an issue that it does not care about.

      Well, they are beating not only the dad with these sanctions for the good of the Anglo-Saxons, but also us and themselves! Truly fools ...

    I wonder if the sanctions war with its socio-economic bombing is still an element of the Cold War or a hot one ..?

      According to the latest results - the devastating effect on the economy, and the mass death of people from lack of medicines (the example of Iran), rather a hot war ...

      Hot, don't hesitate.
      This is how wars begin now. And the troops are needed "to maintain democracy" in the already destroyed territories by the hands of the inhabitants of these territories.

        I agree. In the presence of all-destroying nuclear weapons, to fight, i.e. you can kill by other means without risking a nuclear retaliation.
        Palm oil. Nicotine. Alcohol. Viruses ..........
        A real war is going on, but martial law is not being introduced for the first time. Split consciousness.
        This is a real pandemic of mass schizophrenia and is the result of another poison - the media.

      Tikhonovskaya is guided primarily by personal benefits (in fact, like most people), so that the destruction of the economy of her country will easily survive, she was given such prospects there that she no longer descends from heaven

      Of course he will! How not to say, if she herself is not even on her knees, but in the knee-elbow position of a "country with developed democracy" begs.

      We have Humpback Dog quite calmly survived economic sabotage against his own country. Isn't it a sabotage when AT THE SAME TIME 22 out of 16 tobacco factories in the USSR stop? Moreover, according to the Thatcher bitch, "we did not have time to ask, but Gorbachev is already doing it." If he was worried, the American Espress card with two hundred thousand American money from the President of South Korea and the Nobel Prize almost a million of the same money calmed him down.

      Did the drunkard Sverdlovsk collapse of the country, economy, army, genocide against his own people normally survive? Didn't even sneeze. Well, maybe he knocked over an extra glass in Belovezhskaya Pushcha for the mention of the USSR ...

      And this one will survive normally. Imagine the impossible - Lukashenka left. She is the President of Belarus. Will destroy and sell Belarus, arrange Ukraine-2.0 (if not worse) and calmly, without torment, will live in Warsaw in his villa.

      To worry about the fate of your country is at least the remnants of honor and conscience you need to have. And "THESE" have neither the one nor the other by definition.

      How is that! Sultan Erdogan. This is precisely why they rested their horns, or the protection of the shelf, sanctions and pressure on the Turks, or our boycott of Belarus.

    Doesn't Russia want to support Cyprus?
    I remember I was outraged when Russia supported the sanctions against Iran, and then 2014 came.

      Is Russia really an EU country?
      Did I miss something?

      By the way, Cyprus takes an unambiguously anti-Belarusian position. He just uses the situation to advance his own interests.

        You shouldn't be so, but alas, the tendency is the father is Greek, the mother is Greek, and the child is already a Cypriot. Alas, the British know how to shit.
