The calls to lift sanctions on Russia are not new. Since the introduction of European sanctions in 2014 after the re-annexation of Crimea to Russia, we increasingly hear these calls from many countries because Europe, European businessmen and politicians know that these sanctions not only harm Russia but more severely harm the European economy, whose losses amount to tens of billions of euros. The sanctions led to the bankruptcy of many European companies and businessmen, so we see repeated calls for the lifting of sanctions on Russia.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western sanctions on Russia and US presence in Europe. You can see other examples here, here, and here.
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.
