“Together, the EU member states have imposed the most powerful and widest sanctions in history to help Ukraine…”
Haven’t we seen the same language for sanction package 1 through 9? I think so. Ah but i know, Package no 11 will be poised as “the truly and really most powerful…”
All ten packages should’ve been implemented before a cockroach even set foot on Ukrainian soil. But, no, this would damage Western interests. So, here we are one year later and have a ridiculous ten packages of relatively weak sanctions, while the mafia are still producing weapons and waging war.
I’m sure that this tenth package also deftly avoids anything that would harm Western financial interests. Who is still doing business in or with mafia land?
