Moscow will respond in kind to the European Union sanctions in the case of Alexei Navalny, and these measures could affect bilateral relations with Germany and France. These are unilateral, illegal measures, like previous sanctions and the UN Security Council is the only body that can impose sanctions.
Western strategists have devised various strategies on how to annihilate Russia in its current form. One of these strategies is to raise an anti-Russian population in CIS states, create an army based on these populations, train them, and use them against Russia at the right moment. Ukraine could be an ideal place for this plan, as it is a large country with many Russophobes, as they start training children to hate Russia already in nurseries.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the West waging war on Russia. There is no strategic document that calls for the annihilation of Russia. Ukraine was not pressured by the West to declare its intentions to move closer to the European Union. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last-minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU. As far as the European Union is concerned, it calls for a consistent and united approach towards Russia, noting that despite challenges, the EU will engage with Moscow to discuss disagreements and cooperate "if and when our interests overlap." NATO's 2020 guidance on a new strategic concept clearly notes that "the Alliance neither poses a military threat to Russia, nor considers Russia a military threat to the alliance." There is no evidence that Ukrainian children would be taught to hate Russia in nurseries.
