The European Union is preparing the 12th package of sanctions against Russia

European authorities plan to impose the 12th package of sanctions restrictions on Russia. According to information from diplomatic sources, Brussels will begin discussing the next anti-Russian measures on November 17.

It is reported that the final decision on the 12th package could be made in mid-December or by the end of this year. After this, the sanctions will be approved at the level of the authorities of the European Union countries.

Earlier, European parliamentarians decided that the new package of anti-Russian bans would include machines that Moscow allegedly uses to produce weapons. Also subject to sanctions are lithium batteries, certain types of chemical products, thermostats and engines for drones.

In addition, from January 1, Russian diamonds may be subject to sanctions, even if they are processed in other countries. Along with this, anti-Russian restrictions will affect 47 individuals and 72 legal entities.

Meanwhile, despite the prohibitive measures of the West, the Russian economy shows growth. At the same time, the economic development of European countries leaves much to be desired. This is largely influenced by the high cost of living in the EU, as well as uncertainty, weak external demand and tightening monetary policy, which Brussels is forced to accept.

    Let them impose this package of sanctions, only now they will shit themselves in their pants again, it is clear that they are standing on wheels, licking the butt of their master, trying to please him, but as always, they will first of all make things worse for themselves and their people. But the General Staff is completely satisfied with this, so they are destroying the European Union. good

    It is important how tough and asymmetrical the response from Russia will be. Either there will be mumbling and concern, or in response it will destroy Geyropa’s economy so much that they will regret that they decided to do something against Russia at all.
    All these sanctions are just a mirror of toothless answers. Geyropa sees in Russia's actions an uncertain parry, instead of the most severe blows in response, and that is why they are trying to hurt Russia again and again. We need to respond in such a way that it is discouraging to look in our direction at all, and not anxiously adapt.

    When will sanctions be introduced to the wind from the West? So that they cannot breathe the air of democracy

    When they are stubborn - they spank and spank - and the thought does not arise - to evaluate the effect of previous packages

      Why, aren’t prices for food and goods rising in Russia, the population isn’t declining catastrophically, and troops haven’t been trampling around Donetsk for almost two years?

      Well, stupid, they just raised prices in Russia many times with the help of sanctions. Well, stupid, they couldn’t even increase it 10 times. They just won, our food supply is stronger than everyone else!
