The decision to extend EU sanctions against Russia until September 2016 reflects the hypocrisy of European imperialists whose aim is to promote the interests of transnational capitalist corporations. // Leaders of the EU also support the fascist Ukrainian regime and jihadist terrorists.

Disproof

The EU imposed restrictive measures against the Russian Federation in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of a neighbouring sovereign country (bit.ly/19wwzP3), . // The EU supports Ukraine's democratically elected government in its endeavour to undertake the political and economic reforms that are necessary to consolidate a democratic, independent, united and prosperous Ukraine (bit.ly/1WZr5PI), . EU member states are fully committed to fight terrorism (bit.ly/1RQFDzI), .
