Move Towards Confrontation: EU Ministers Agreed On New Sanctions Against Russia

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

The European Union has expectedly opted to remain the puppet of globalists rather than develop constructive relations with Russia in its own interest.

On February 22, EU foreign ministers agreed to impose sanctions on four senior Russian officials in response to the formal leader of the pro-Western ‘non-system opposition’ Alexei Navalny, Reuters reported citing two EU diplomats.

According to the report, the sanctions will target Russia’s head of the Investigative Committee, which handles probes into major crimes, the director of prisons, the director of Russia’s National Guard and the prosecutor general.

This move, when it is implemented, will become another major meddling of foreign powers into Russian internal affairs. No surprise, the EU approach finds no ‘positive response’ in the Kremlin.

Some experts claim that such sanctions, that would target individuals rather than Russian economic sectors, should be considered as a good-will gesture of the EU and a signal of the European readiness to cooperate. Even if one accepts this version, the actions of the EU still remain the blatant aggression against Russian national interests.
