The tenth package of anti-Russian sanctions may be the last

French MEP Thierry Mariani suggested that the tenth package of anti-Russian sanctions adopted by the European Union could be the last. The emerging disagreements between the EU member states will not allow introducing new restrictions against Russia.

While a number of countries consider the sanctions imposed too lenient and call for increased economic pressure on Moscow, other EU representatives oppose restrictions because they harm their own well-being.

Representatives of Hungary, Austria and Slovakia are calling most loudly to stop the sanctions pressure on Russia. They are most interested in maintaining supplies of inexpensive gas from the Russian Federation and are not ready to harm the economies of their countries in favor of the US and the EU. A number of states actively oppose restrictions in the field of peaceful atom. In Europe, there are 19 Russian-made reactors that provide energy to 5 countries, and only Rosatom can ensure the safety of their operation.

The French MP believes that after the introduction of the 10th package of sanctions, there are no areas left where the EU can introduce new restrictions relatively painlessly for itself.

The long and difficult discussion of the tenth package and its belated adoption confirms the failure of the sanctions policy EU

    When will the first Russian package of anti-Western sanctions finally come?

    If the West wanted to inflict a strategic defeat on the Russian Federation, it would not impose sanctions against capitalists and state dignitaries, but, on the contrary, bought them through the most favored nation treatment and thus killed three rabbits at once - it split the ruling class, destabilized the internal situation, received an influx of private investment into their own economy.
    Instead, it excels in the desire to inflict damage on large owners, and as you know, a common external threat leads to unification and opposition, which is the case, and hence the effectiveness of sanctions.
