EU sanctions against Russia is a part of a plan to make Russia lose its sovereignty

Summary of Disinformation

EU sanctions against Russia are imposed as part of the pressure to make Russia lose its sovereignty.

If sanctions are on the EU’s to-do list, they will ask Kyiv to commit a provocation and then they will impose sanctions – supposedly as a reaction to Russia’s actions, but in reality, it is all pre-planned.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on sanctions. Accusing the West, including the EU, of orchestrating a provocation by Ukraine, is a classical pro-Kremlin narrative.

Since March 2014, the EU has progressively imposed restrictive measures against Russia. The measures were adopted in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of Ukraine.
