    The EU fails to agree more sanctions on Russia on the anniversary of the start of the invasion

    The member countries of the European Union have not reached an agreement on the tenth package of sanctions against Russia, despite the fact that the objective was to do so on the anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine. The ambassadors of the 27 member countries have been negotiating for three days but have been blocked by minor matters, which has caused some perplexity in the community institutions. The semi-annual presidency, Sweden, will try again to present the agreement tomorrow Saturday.

    He main obstacle was posed by Poland, which decided to block the entire package simply because it considers that the restrictions on EU imports of Russian synthetic rubber maintained such a large exempt quota that they would have no effect in practice. This position of Poland, one of the “hawks” in the policy towards Russia, puzzled other countries who believe that it is not a good sign that new sanctions were not announced on the first anniversary of Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

    The European Commission had prepared this tenth round of sanctions against Russia with the idea of ​​making it more difficult to finance the war and depriving Russia of technology and spare parts for weapons used against Ukraine. More people are added to the list of those barred from entering the EU, including those the West says are propagandists for Russian aggression, those Ukraine holds responsible for deporting Ukrainian children to Russia, and those involved in drone production. Iranians deployed at the front. Two banks (Alfa-Bank and Tinkoff) are also added to the list of those excluded from the Swift system, which prevents them from making international transactions, which is expected to reduce the Kremlin’s income by an additional 10 billion.
