EU disappointed in Russia after Moscow announced retaliatory sanctions


The Council of the European Union introduced sanctions against six Russian citizens on March 2 and 22. In response, Russia declared eight citizens of the EU states and representatives of the organization's structures persona non grata. In Europe, they expressed disappointment with Moscow's actions.


According to the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, Russia's retaliatory actions are unfair and do not correspond to international legal norms. The high-ranking diplomat said that Moscow thus embarked on the path of confrontation with Brussels instead of building good-neighborly relations. Europeans will continue policies protect democracy and human rights and will not abandon their ambitious goals.

In response to the initiatives of Russia, the Presidents of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council issued a statement in which they noted the direction of the measures taken against the entire European Union, and not only against individual EU citizens.

This measure is unacceptable, has no legal basis and is absolutely groundless.

- noted in the document.

The EU sanctions in Russia were perceived as an attempt to put pressure on the Kremlin and a challenge to the actions of the state in domestic life and in the international arena, which was emphasized in the Russian Foreign Ministry.

    We don't care, but we don't care
    May we fear the wolf and the owl
    We have business - at the most terrible hour
    We mow the magical tryn grass.

    And we don't care, but we don't care
    We will become brave and courageous lion.
    We will stand at least once in the most terrible hour -
    All our misfortunes will be tryn-grass.


    International legal norms, expressed, in particular, in international treaties, which "partners" unilaterally refuse, are not more valuable than toilet paper.

    Russia's response is unfair and does not comply with international legal norms.

    clean up, Josep, Moscow doesn't believe in tears ...

    with Brussels instead of building good neighborly relations

    - pre-neighborly relations with this herd of freaks means that Eurogeans will kick Russia, and Russia will only smile!

    In Europe, they expressed disappointment with Moscow's actions.

    Moscow did not notice.

    Twenty years from now (given the current trend), Europe’s opinion in general will be of little interest to anyone.

    The sanctions are very serious - the EU undertakes to stop the import of oil and gas from the Russian Federation, freeze the European assets of private and state-owned companies, and prohibit their leaders from entering the EU.
    If they do it, the RF will have to be tight, very tight.

      Why is it so small? A gang for 850 million, we have less than 150 million.

    And you, this mouse fuss, between work (Russia) and the house where children and wives live (EU) didn’t get enough already? Not relevant, not interesting, not funny. It's just stupid.
