The EU lifts part of the sanctions: they cannot defeat Russia - they are trying to bribe


Western anti-Russian sanctions have not yet begun to work properly, and they are already being hastily lifted. This is done without much publicity, not through the European Parliament, but through the European Commission, the executive body of the EU. Simply put, without prior discussion by deputies. However, Russophobic countries such as Poland and the Baltic republics raised the issue publicly, indignant at what was happening. Bloomberg writes about this in an article by columnist Alberto Nardelli.


The new European Commission regulations state that the export of certain Russian goods, including coal and related products, "should be allowed to ensure food and energy security around the world." The commission said earlier that sanctions it has imposed prohibit EU operators from supplying coal and providing services such as financing and insurance to all shipments of such products originating in Russia. Now this restriction has been lifted.

The EU is fully committed to ensure that its sanctions do not unduly affect trade in critical goods with third countries around the world

- said the representative of the European Commission Daniel Ferry.

He specifically emphasized that the clarification applies to agri-food commodities, including chemicals used in fertilizers, energy feedstocks and specific essential commodities.

In pursuance of the order, additional restrictions on financing or the provision of financial assistance, such as insurance or reinsurance by EU operators for the transportation to third countries of the products mentioned in the instructions attached to the document, are removed.

It is rather strange that all these “negative consequences” for the supposedly protected world market of food products and energy raw materials were not noticed by the EC officials during the frenzied sanctions spurt in March and April of this year. Now it was urgently necessary to remove a huge part of the sanctions that were so hard to accept. The answer is quite simple: they could not blackmail, win, isolate the Russian Federation from the markets in the EU, now they are trying to bribe with a pragmatic attitude and a change in tactics of behavior, since it is impossible to believe in the bureaucrats' concern for the developing countries of the world.

    But in real life, it's just a pendulum effect. They took it in excess, in some places it is necessary to roll back ...

    And the oligarchs of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus will gladly sell everything to NATO officially .... (as before to the solarium of Ukraine)

      And the currency will come in handy for us, because we will again become shuttles and black marketers, as in the 80-90s, since apart from raw materials and weapons we do little ourselves (or do little that is good).

      In general, a strange headline, who writes these articles, passing off their theories as news ..

    And what about ours, did they immediately agree ?? Maybe you need to take time to think, it is very fashionable now to talk about logistics, demand guarantees, and so on. That is, let our "intelligent" official go there, and ours know how to arrange red tape.

    A small question for you and the author of the news: didn’t our leadership just recently complain about the obstacles to the supply of Russian grain and fertilizers abroad??? winked
