Russia’s permanent representative to the European Union, Vladimir Chizhov, asserted that “the next round of European sanctions against Russia will harm Europeans themselves”.
Russia’s permanent representative to the European Union, Vladimir Chizhov, said on Wednesday that “talking about a new package of sanctions that the European Union could impose on Russia is hypothetical”noting that “this package will be more painful than the previous ones for Europeans themselves. »
Chizhov pointed out, in an interview with the Russia 24 television channel, that “these discussions about a new European Union sanctions package against Russia are still hypothetical”, noting that “the sanctions package that has been adopted (before) is already painful for the EU economy, enough is enough. »
“The next package will be more painful for the Europeans, so they should think twice before making their decision,” he added.
It should be noted that the European Union has previously imposed 7 packages of different types of sanctions on Russia, with the aim of causing more serious damage to the Russian economy.
According to the Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, on August 25, there is an eighth package that the European Union is about to impose on the Russian Federation.
He hinted that this package could be limited to sanctions in the area of visas, because this problem is less important than other problems, but at the same time it is the most noisy.
Nothing surprising because, he had already warned the following July News.ru who also reported to us that the permanent representative of Russia to the EU, that it would be impossible to return to the old mode of relations with Europe
Russia will not be able to return to the previous format of communication with the European Union, Vladimir Chizhov, permanent representative of the Russian Federation to the EU, said in an interview with Izvestia. According to him, Brussels must reconsider its position and return to dialogue with Moscow in order to stop the “deterioration” of relations.
They [les relations] are not at an impasse, but continue to deteriorate. Perhaps they should reconsider their position vis-à-vis Russia. And think about what’s next. My signal to them, I send it from time to time: before burning the remaining bridges, think that it is much more difficult to build bridges ”
