EU countries can approve on October 15 new sanctions against Russia


Foreign Ministers of the states of the European Union will gather in Luxembourg to discuss restrictive measures in connection with business by Skripalya. What will sanctions and as far as they can be sensitive for Moscow be? Photo: Alexey Vitvitsky / on Monday, October 15, in Luxembourg new measures against Russia because of poisoning in Salisbury can approve TASS of the Foreign Minister of the European Union countries. The offer was made by Great Britain and France. As writes The Telegraph, it will be personal sanctions against heads of intelligence services and politicians of the countries recognized responsible for use of chemical weapon. Entry into EU countries will be forbidden them, and their foreign accounts are frozen. These measures can be how sensitive? Pavel Salin the director of the Center of politological researches of Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation "All would like to know that the European Union countries are meant because and according to contents of their statements, and on that practice which exists it is possible to make the assumption that no serious sanctions will follow because, first, sanctions can be imposed against those persons who and so owing to the status are not too strongly implanted in the West. This is, first, the staff of intelligence agencies, secondly, public politicians who after 2014 for certain smoothed out all tails, all the interests in Europe. If to look at a situation de jure, then, probably, sanctions can be imposed but to any real consequences it will not lead. And if to look at a situation de facto, when there is a need, exceptions easily are made of sanctions of this sort. The striking example is the Russian-American relations and sanctions of Americans against representatives of the Russian intelligence agencies which were imposed right after annexation of the Crimea in 2014, and it became known that at the beginning of 2017 heads of several Russian intelligence agencies visited the USA and there met and communicated with the colleagues, and it was made in spite of the fact that they officially are under sanctions. The much bigger danger is represented by the second package of the American sanctions which is announced by State Department. There potentially rather unpleasant sanctions and for the Russian economy, and for certain representatives of elite contain". It is supposed that the sanctions regime will affect not only Russia, but also other countries convicted of violation of the ban on use of chemical weapon. Before the sanction in the matter of Skripaly announced the USA. The first package came into force on August 27 — then a ban on export to Russia of the goods and technologies relating to national security was imposed. Further, if Russia does not give guarantees of refusal of chemical weapon and will not allow to carry out inspections on chemical objects, Washington can apply the second package of sanctions.
