Sanctions against Russia give birth to corruption in the EU. Fruits are illegally exported from the EU to Russia through Belarus. EU farmers have to pay for getting their products into the Russian markets.
It is not only the local police that are trying to stop the yellow vests protests in France, but also the military equipment of the EU. Armoured military vehicles with the EU flag are used against unarmed European protesters, who demonstrate against the EU-supported authoritarian regime. The EU is not a project of peace.
EU does not own any military vehicles nor has it sent any to France.
French gendarmerie deployed several armoured vehicles. One of them was marked with the EU flag, as it had previously been used in a European training exercise.
