The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that large-scale sanctions against Russia are already ready. They will be introduced in the event of a new Russian aggression against Ukraine.

She made such a statement in an interview with the newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche .

According to the President of the European Commission, the sanctions were agreed with the United States of America. 

“Any further aggression against Ukraine will be subject to sanctions with enormous consequences. They are already ready. European countries are united and act in concert with the US and NATO. We want good relations with Russia, but it depends on its actions,” she said.

Aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine

On December 1, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he  wanted to receive guarantees from the West that Ukraine would not join  NATO.

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said that Joe Biden, during talks with Vladimir Putin on December 7, refused to make concessions on the issue of Ukraine’s NATO membership prospects.

On December 16, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that  NATO would not make concessions to Russia  on the issue of Ukraine’s approach to membership in the Alliance. According to him, Ukraine has the right to protection and, together with NATO, will determine the issue of membership in the Alliance.

On December 17, the Russian Federation proposed to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)  to abandon Ukraine’s admission to NATO  and “from conducting any military activity on the territory of Ukraine.” Russia also offered the United States not to create military bases on the territory of the countries of the former USSR and not to accept these countries into NATO.

On December 23, Stoltenberg said the  Alliance had never promised not to admit new members from eastern Europe.

Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that in early 2022, representatives of the Russian Federation and the United States will discuss security issues in Europe in Geneva.

    • Now that the EU, NATO and the US have loaded Biden’s shotgun he better use it. If I were an advisor I would tell Biden to tell the platform shoed dictator to withdraw all soldiers and equipment by 200 km as a good will gesture before speaking, or know that they will be considered targets by the EU NATO and the US. In the meantime, send a Turk made drone to the HQ……
