EU leaders are ignoring the opinions of their own Residents when renewing punishment relative to Russia, said the British expert in international vzaimootnosheniam, chief editor of Politics First Marcus Papadopoulos.
"The EU's decision to extend the punishment relative to Russia until January 2016 not a surprise. Since the beginning of the confusion And subsequent conflict in Ukraine in the past year, the EU has consistently blamed them in the Russian Federation, "Papadopoulos said in the interview to RIA "Novosti" moreover, the EU has consistently blames the Russian Federation for violation of the Minsk agreements. Despite the fact that EU officials are unable to assure their statements about Russia, it is clear that Brussels will follow the line of the United States. In the end, the US gave Germany the informal position of the head of the EU Field of the cold war, And the EU is used by Americans to achieve geostrategic objectives of the US capital, namely the involvement of Ukraine in the sphere of influence of the West at the expense of Russia, " said Papadopoulos. He added that EU Leaders follow their political line, ignoring the desires of their own People." I would ask one question: are you ready for real sector of the economy of the EU to extend sanctions on Russia? Asked whether officials of the EU, the opinions of farmers in Spain, Italy And Greece, for example, with respect to the renewal of the ban on the production And delivery of agricultural products to the Russian Federation? Have you consulted equipment manufacturers such as JCB in Britain, about the ban on the production And delivery of their products Russia for another six months due punishment? The response to these questions is a clear no. EU leaders are ignoring the opinions of their own Residents for the sake of fulfilling the requirements of the U.S. And, in doing so, behave in a most undemocratic way, " says the specialist. In his vision, the punishment of the EU towards Russia currently operate And will continue to work With the " boomerang effect ".
Producers farmer to manufacturers of industrial products, organizations throughout the EU suffer terribly From the fact that they are no longer allowed to export products to Russia. What once was a profitable transaction for the agricultural And industrial sectors of the EU, is now experiencing a sharp decline in the end of the Brussels punishment relative to Russia. Moreover, mainstream media in the EU just mention the price, for example, farmers are paying for the Fact that they are not allowed to export to the Russian Federation. What they're not doing it, talking about how the correspondents of the mainstream media are a tool of the governments of member countries of the EU And are anything but "independent" as they like to position themselves, " he noticed Papadopoulos. By the reviews, the editor of Politics First, punishment of the EU towards Russia for a long time." Even though Germany, as the unofficial leader of the EU, can grumble And be dissatisfied with the dictates of the United States, Berlin remains true strategic ally of the US capital And for this reason will continue to serve American interests, in this case associated With Ukraine. And the US has a continuous desire to see Ukraine from the EU And NATO to isolate the Russian Federation on its Western borders, And therefore to minimize the influence of the Russian Federation in the European Union ", - said the head of the Department." it is quite Possible that in January of 2016 the EU will extend the punishment relative to Russia for another six months, " He added. However, Russia, according to Papadopoulos, nothing to fear." Russia is not Cuba And Iran. Russia - energy, military And nuclear superpower, And it will continue to successfully resist the EU's sanctions against its economy. And this, not completely, will be achieved through the strengthening of Russian trade And business ties With countries such as China, India And Brazil. It should also be noted that the Russian Federation cannot allow the US have achieved our goal on Ukraine because having Ukraine in NATO may become one of the most serious threats to state security of Russia and its history, " He said. Before Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he had signed a decree on the extension of protective measures. On the first day of the week, the EU Council formally extended punishment against Russia for another six months, until 31 January 2016. The President's press Secretary Dmitry Peskov called the extension of EU sanctions against Russia are unfounded And illegal. And, according to him, Russia will proceed from the principle of reciprocity. The government's proposals on food embargo worked in the administration of the Kremlin, the Decision will be made " Very quickly ".
