Brussels intends to take three anti-Russian steps


MEPs propose to take a number of steps to "punish" Russia for its possible "invasion" of Ukraine. Thus, 548 European parliamentarians (an absolute majority) consider it necessary to introduce tough measures against Moscow in this case.


Overall, Brussels plans to focus on three steps in this regard: informing the Council of the European Union about Russia's actions, joint EU measures with the United States, NATO and Ukraine, and large-scale economic and financial sanctions. The latter will consist, in particular, in disconnecting Russian banks from the SWIFT international payment system, the consequences of which will be felt by the entire financial system of the Russian Federation and every citizen of the country.

In addition, it is planned to impose a number of travel restrictions on certain individuals in Europe and to freeze their accounts in Western banks. It is also likely that the visa-free regime will be canceled for holders of diplomatic passports of the Russian Federation (except for accredited persons).

The European Parliament has not forgotten about Nord Stream 2, whose activities are planned to be blocked in the event of an "aggression" by Russian troops on Ukrainian territory. Earlier, the new head of the German Foreign Ministry, Annalena Berbock, spoke about this, speaking about the need for a gradual transition to renewable energy sources and about ending dependence on Russian energy resources.

        The difference between NATO countries and Russia is that NATO will drive natives (Ukrainians of military age) instead of itself, while Russia sends its citizens to fight. The real elite of the country is youth of military age, people from dying villages, from working settlements of Zamkadia. Not infected with HIV, AIDS. are not addicts.

          Ukrainian natives for 7 years of war with Russia cannot collect a limit in military registration and enlistment offices - there is always a shortage, with 50-70 percent))) They bring everything to work in Poland and Russia, instead of fighting. What has the most shortage in the military registration and enlistment offices in Western Ukraine for some reason)))
          I live 1000 km from the Moscow Ring Road, I can't put my car in the yard - all the poor castles made the bastards with their foreign cars for a million or more - they don't want to die of HIV and AIDS for some reason - they buy foreign cars)))

            On the contrary. This is a plus example, for a patriot of Russia. They will surrender in batches. Send them to the construction of Shoigin megacities.

            They bring everyone to work in Poland and Russia, instead of fighting. What has the most shortage in the military registration and enlistment offices in Western Ukraine for some reason)))

            There are also no huge queues in our military commissariats for the delights of urgent and contract service. The Russians would also have poured money for work in the EU. Yes, the covid closed the borders. And not all Russians, due to their modest incomes, can afford to pay the duty for a passport.

            I live 1000 km from the Moscow Ring Road, I can't put my car in the yard - all the poor castles made the bastards with their foreign cars for a million or more - they don't want to die of HIV and AIDS for some reason - they buy foreign cars))

              in our military registration and enlistment offices there have been queues for a long time, the fact that you have not been to Russia is understandable) Now they go into the army calmly - only a year. And mriyas about the fact that we are here in Russia eating the last hedgehog and dreaming of going to pick strawberries in Poland - keep it with you.

                        Last year I was there. And in Volzhsky. Poverty. Volzhsky shipyard with broken windows in the workshops, with collapsed roofs. For two years the Ministry of Defense could not hand over an order consisting of two boats. The average salary, according to local stories, is 15 thousand rubles. constantly asked where to find a job, seeing that they were driving a nonresident.

                        that's it)) and with this poverty the car cannot be put in the yard - everything is packed and not rubbish and houses are built like hot cakes from the oven and everything is bought up. These are all beggars with 15 thousand salaries)))
                        and we do not have an average salary of 15 thousand there. There, the average salary is 25-30 thousand - but all my relatives and friends get from 40 to 60, working on the same pipe in Volzhsky. The salary at the chemical plant is good, but the work is harmful, people die early. The people have summer cottages, vegetable gardens, fishing is the same - so do not go hungry)))) Many of course leave for Moscow or Krasnodar in search of the best - but this has always been the case.
                        The shipbuilding plant has long been abandoned - what kind of boats did you want to do there? )))

        ... NATO will drive the natives in its place ...

        Yes, it will not chase anyone away, these most of the "natives" have lived in those places since centuries. Thirty years ago, they were completely Russians, or rather Soviet citizens of various nationalities, who, on occasion, were informed that they were now citizens of another state.
        A generation of Russian natives has grown up, who in their mentality are no different from their other relatives, except that they were once declared foreign Russians.
        Another state has grown, a different school, different laws, a different policy and an army, the oath is also different. In general, the elite has grown up different.
        So they will just face the Zamadovskaya Russian elite, in Ukraine, which they now consider to be theirs. Why would NATO send soldiers there? It is enough to provide technical and financial assistance. Losses among the Russians and the natives, who are essentially also Russians, will be in any scenario.
        This is such a turn, all thanks to the wisest policy of the Russian tsar from the 90s of his heirs.

        And how do you think the Russians will die at the hands of your Ukropov Bandera shortcomings? You have 70% of the accumulated forces on the border with Donbass, pinpoint missile strikes on the accumulation of manpower, a little to the rear so that there is no recharge, coordination and command of the army. Destroy nearby airfields and important military facilities, also with missile strikes, and after that you can go even on tanks even on foot without encountering any resistance.

    Disconnecting Russia from the financial system is an impossible laugh.
    No payment, no product. That is, the price tag of 10 euros for gas is becoming a reality. But there is no gas even at this price. And in the States there is no fuel oil. And there are many other things that are not in the world.
    But back to Europe. Factories are being closed, benefits are being reset, apartments are cold. Citizens are hastily switching to clothing a la rus - 100% Russian cotton. In common parlance, a quilted jacket. And they carry the MEPs out into the cold. They can also pour cold water from a hose. This is their tradition.
    When they write about the problems in Russia, for some reason they forget about the catastrophe in Europe.

          Well, it is necessary to limit the appetite for these 15% and not try to nightmare everyone around at 100. The economy does not like shocks, turn it on, turn it off, switch it off, turn it off. Circus on tour and nothing more.
          The world economy needs stability and predictability, that's it. And we have already seen enough of "effective managers" there (there are enough of our own). Therefore, it is possible that the attempts of Russian newly-made capitalists, to drive a wave and muddy the waters, can also cause the same laughter in the West. And behind the scenes, here and there, it’s probably no laughing matter anymore.
