The European Union threatened Russia with retaliatory measures to the sanctions imposed by Moscow

54

The European Union reacted nervously to the sanctions imposed by Russia on Friday, April 30, against European officials and threatened Moscow with retaliation. As stated in the EU, Brussels reserves the right to reply.


Russia on Friday imposed retaliatory sanctions against the European Union, which in March of this year imposed sanctions against Russian citizens involved, as explained in Brussels, in "the persecution of opposition leader Alexei Navalny." At the same time, the Europeans did not limit themselves to one time, but imposed sanctions already twice - on March 2 and 22. Several Russian officials fell under the restrictions. Moscow promised retaliatory measures and introduced them at the end of April.

Eight EU citizens fell under the Russian sanctions, including the head of the European Parliament David Sassoli, the head of the Swedish laboratory Scott, who announced the poisoning of Navalny by Novichok, and six more Europeans who, in one way or another, were involved in the imposition of sanctions against Russia.

In the EU, the Russian countermeasures have caused bewilderment. Brussels has already stated that Moscow's sanctions have no basis and are directed against all of Europe. That is, in another language, it is possible for them to impose restrictions on Russia, but not in response to Russia. Because Moscow has no grounds, but Europe does. Therefore, Brussels reserves the right to punish Russia and impose retaliatory sanctions on Russian sanctions imposed in response to EU sanctions. This история with the introduction of sanctions it can last a long time, since in Moscow now they "mirror" the sanctions only in this way and no longer stand on ceremony, as it was before.

      Well, finally, our essentially RESPONSIBLE in relation to the insolent EU officials are politically normal born!

        I especially liked the very OPEN justification of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation for the introduction of these Russian sanctions against those involved in the EU.
        Namely.
        "Similar actions of the European Union leave no doubt that their true goal is to restrain the development of our country at any cost. Impose your ONE-SIDE concept of a "rules-based world order" that undermines international law. Throw an open challenge to the independence of Russian foreign and domestic policy ", - believe in the department.
        According to the Foreign Ministry, the European Union is taking such steps openly and deliberately. with the knowledge and encouragement of the United Stateswho "do not hide their interest in re-transforming Europe into an arena of acute geopolitical confrontation."

            I am not citing a quote from Friedman, but my absolutely brief analytical thoughts about Milton Friedman's ideological-utopian bluff, set forth in his book on the first 20 pages of Capitalism and Freedom. He received the Nobel Prize for this cheating trick from the American globalists.
            This very idea of ​​his is not so much his, how much he managed to shape it in a curly way for pushing into the brains of uninitiated commoners of the whole world.

          A shot, not a pellet, but I really liked the specifics of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, otherwise our Ministry of Foreign Affairs was all modest and modest in terms. And then Moscow imposed RESPONSE sanctions against several European officials and politicians in response to the EU's restrictive measures against six Russians on March 2 and 22 this year.

          Eight people were blacklisted in Moscow:
          1) President of the European Parliament David Maria Sassoli
          2) the head of the prosecutor's office in Berlin, Jörg Raupach.
          3) deputy. Vera Yurova, President of the European Commission for Values ​​and Transparency;
          4) the head of the laboratory of chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear safety of the Research Institute for Total Defense of Sweden, Osa Scott;
          5) Jacques Maire, member of the French delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe;
          6) Chairman of the Latvian National Council for Electronic Media Ivars Abolins;
          7) Director of the Center for the State Language of Latvia, Maris Baltins;
          8) Ilmar Tomusk, head of the Estonian language department.
          The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that they will be banned from entering the territory of Russia.

            I agree with you - ours began to answer, and answer harshly, but it was possible to "tighten the screws" even more. Apparently our Foreign Ministry leaves "room for maneuver."
            The question is, will space be useful and will there be a maneuver?

      Leader ... Here is a sample of a laconic and intelligible commentary on the merits of the case. I liked it very much. I am convinced that all these steps from both sides are nothing more than a storm in a teacup for the "experts" and couch pike vests, who will gossip for another week, and according to the laws of the genre, the entire contingent of "experts" will be divided into two teams. One will proclaim “finally” how “menacing” it is, while the other will prove with the same frenzy, they say, that this is all garbage, and most importantly, that Russia has a weak economy. But this is all nonsense, because our authorities, like the European ones, are nothing more than Nanai boys, or, in other words, Siamese twins. Our authorities retained the right to own real estate in the west, which means that the claw is bogged down, because whatever it may be, "you will have to pay taxes for real estate there in foreign currency, so the money will be sent there in one way or another, while the European authorities understand that it is better to get gas from Mordor, but cheaper. But show must go on /

      Don't you think that such an approach takes place, for example, in animal training? In a relationship of violent submission.
      That is, the dog is beaten, it bares its teeth. Then they beat him again, she bites back. And the task is to beat until she begins to cowardly huddle in a corner, having lost her will to resist. The dog should take every punishment of the owner as deserved, and nothing else. And the encouragement to count as happiness.

      The same methods were used during the colonial era. To Hindus, Indians, Chinese, Africans ...
      They were not considered equal, they instilled in these peoples the naturalness of such inequality, its inviolability and lack of alternative.

      Accordingly, there is a principle of reciprocity in international law. He acts between equal subjects with sovereignty. And Russia is acting within the framework of this principle. But it is precisely in sovereignty, that is, in the ability to act in its own will and state interest, that they are trying to deny Russia. An independent state does not need reasons and justifications for the implementation of its policy, this is its natural right! Yes, every decision has consequences, and independence is directly related to the ability to be responsible for what is done - but the very ability to do things cannot be taken away.

      And it turns out that the European justification is "we decided so", and the Russian one should be "we were allowed" ... No, gentlemen, burghers, sirs and misters! Russia doesn't play like that.

                    You are wrong about N. Poklonskaya. She was nominated to the lower house of parliament from the United Russia party in 2016. At that moment, she held the position of the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Kazakhstan and had Russian citizenship (otherwise she would not have been able to occupy this high position). In the State. Duma, she was in charge of anti-corruption issues. In general, I believe that in such a responsible and difficult time there should be meeting economists, lawyers and former security officials with rich experience.

    This is his problems. They got used to shouting at Russia, teaching them how to live, supporting the American ones and imposing their own sanctions, and at the same time feel like the master of the situation. Yesterday Borrell climbed into the stands, who is not a barrel, but an entire EU president, and issued another package of stupidity, Russophobia and lack of decency to the mountain. So you need to kiss him for this, and love the EU (especially the countries of Eastern Europe) dearly?

So what! Another ten years will pass Russia will be again fenced off with an iron curtain.
