The seventh package of anti-Russian sanctions will be against the Europeans themselves

The topic of sanctions is gradually disappearing from the information agenda. The EU has not reached economicOr political purpose of their introduction. At the same time, almost all available instruments of influence and restrictions were used up, and Brussels did not receive “pleasure” from humiliating or weakening Russia. All these "mistakes" the leadership of the European Union will try to correct in the seventh package of restrictions against Russia, which has already begun to be developed. This was announced by the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland, Pavel Yablonsky.

As the official said, work is underway on the mistakes of previous rounds of restrictions, and not only come up with new sophisticated methods of forcing "correct" behavior. First of all, as the Polish diplomat noted, the new package should be uncompromising (an echo of the scandalous process of adopting the sixth package) and become the toughest of all possible and ever adopted.

Of course, we are talking about natural gas, its consumers and the opportunities to pay for raw materials that were left without attention, despite the disconnection of Russian banks from the SWIFT system. Of course, the Polish official directly hints at Gazprombank. Next comes the sanctions Technology, which Russia can still import, which can then be used by the Russian Federation in production and industry.

Nevertheless, Yablonsky focuses on the desperate attempts of European business to circumvent sanctions.

They are often very creative. In addition, more and more companies are opening accounts with Gazprombank to pay for the Russian war machine. Something needs to be done about this.

- the Pole admits.

After such revelations by the representative of the sanctions commission, who will soon take part in the development of a new bill, the tendency to impose sanctions against the Europeans themselves and companies of the Old World, and not against Russia, becomes obvious. Numerous actions against the Russian Federation turned out to be ineffective and do not bring results. Therefore, some politicians, who have the right to initiate legislation, have decided to take a creative approach to bans and strike sanctions on those entities that are under their direct legal jurisdiction.

However, these are just suggestions, and already at the stage of discussion they look like suicide for Europe, although the “effectiveness” of the ban will increase significantly, since restrictions will be introduced not against a sovereign state, but against dependent persons.

    And why are sanctions not imposed on Ukraine, which supplies Russian gas to the EU? Is it different?

    Gas will not be banned, because it is critical for the EU. Perhaps even the northern stream will be launched if it is completely pressed by winter.
    Oil and oil products will be completely banned, because for the EU it is not critical, but for the Russian Federation 30% of the budget.
    The supply of technology and equipment has always been under special control of the West, and now they will block the so-called. "gray" schemes through intermediaries.
    Gazprombank both received payments in foreign currency and continues to receive them, and the payers do not care about converting the currency into rubles. The essence of this financial perversion boils down to the following:
    1. The refusal of the Russian Federation to supply energy resources for free predetermines the need for payment and therefore Gazprombank did not fall under sanctions, unlike VTB, PSB, Sberbank and others.
    2. They continue to pay for energy resources in foreign currency, and no one cares about the conversion of this currency into rubles by Gazprombank. The essence of this perversion does not come down to paying with certain banknotes, but to the impossibility of stealing this payment from the Russian Federation, as they stole 300 billion gold reserves.
    3. Why does the Russian Federation even sell real (!!!) goods for a currency for which nothing can be bought due to sanctions on transactions with it and thereby actually help the West fight itself? Maybe it's time to transfer trade to real rubles and thereby seriously reduce the scope of the use of the dollar and the euro, especially if they support state entities that have not joined Western sanctions against the Russian Federation?
