DISINFO: Sanctions are a childish reaction of the EU


Sanctions are a strictly political decision, which is based on an extremely simple division of the world. Extremely childish! On the one hand, there are never any sanctions against their own. Assange can happen, violent crackdowns on protests in France or Germany or the United States can happen […]. There will be absolutely no sanctions. On the other hand, we have the others, those who do not fully comply with the rules of the global game of Atlanticist interests; we see Venezuela which did not make the globalist choice of Juan Guaidò, we see exactly the same problem with Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya in Belarus […]. They lost the fight inside the country. We see the total failure of Navalny in Russia, where people failed to take to the streets since apart from a few occasional demonstrations, there was no massive popular uprising.

These are strictly political decisions that are made to punish those who do not comply with the rules of the game.


Recurrent narrative about the globalism that would control the EU against the interest of its members and promote russophobic sanctions.

The EU sanctions against Russia are not illegal. They were adopted as a reaction to the illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the deliberate destabilisation of Ukraine.

The European sanctions against Russia are linked not only to events in Ukraine. New sanctions were also implemented after the poisoning with banned chemical weapons of prominent Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny, they are targeted against individuals and organizations involved in the crime.

During the Foreign Affairs Council, 22 February 2021, the ministers agreed to proceed with work on future restrictive measures in response to serious violations of human rights.

In response to the events around the situation of Mr. Navalny we reached a political agreement to impose restrictive measures against those responsible for his arrest, sentencing and persecution. For the first time ever we will make use of the EU Global Human Rights Regime to this end. Josep Borrell, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy

They also agreed to increase support to all those engaged in the country in defending the political and civil freedoms.
