The Federation Council assessed the threat of new EU sanctions with the phrase "for a red word"

Member of the Federation Council Vladimir Dzhabarov assessed the threat of new EU sanctions announced by the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, the phrase “for a red word.” He also doubted their significance: according to him, it is not known who will suffer more when restrictions are introduced, Russia or Europe, Gazeta.Ru reports.

The senator noted that over the seven years of sanctions, Russia has adapted to them, some even helped develop, for example, agriculture, so the new ones will not be able to greatly influence or interfere.

“But these new sanctions, you know, are more for red words. Borrell is not responsible. As for the sanctions, I don’t know who will lose more from these sanctions – us or the European Union. Let them think about who depends on whom to what extent, ”Dzhabarov emphasized.

He added that Borrell is an appointed official of the European Union, who will be replaced in a year or two. Although he wants to be a big figure, like NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the EU High Representative is only a manager and does not determine the European security structure, the senator pointed out.

Earlier, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said that the EU would continue to draft new economic sanctions against Russia. “We must be ready to repel aggression, but we prefer the path of diplomacy and negotiations. We reject any attempts by Russia to recreate spheres of influence in Europe,” he said.
