The tenth package of anti-Russian sanctions could be the last

French MEP Thierry Mariani has hinted that the tenth package of anti-Russian sanctions adopted by the European Union could be the last. Emerging disagreements between EU member states will not allow new restrictions to be introduced against Russia.

While a number of countries view the sanctions as too lenient and call for increased economic pressure on Moscow, other EU officials oppose the restrictions because they harm their own well-being.

The representatives of Hungary, Austria and Slovakia call loudest to stop the pressure of sanctions on Russia. They are mainly interested in maintaining the supply of cheap gas to the Russian Federation and are not ready to harm the economies of their countries in favor of the United States and the EU. A number of states actively oppose restrictions in the peaceful atom field. In Europe, there are 19 Russian-made reactors supplying energy to 5 countries, and only Rosatom can ensure their safe operation.

The French MP believes that after the introduction of the 10th sanctions package, there are no longer any areas where the EU can introduce new restrictions relatively painlessly for itself.

The long and difficult discussion of the tenth package and its late adoption confirm the failure of the EU sanctions policy

said Thierry Mariani.
