EU Declares War on Russia…and Itself | New Eastern Outlook

It looks like I am never going to run out of material on the decrepit state of Western leadership. A ceasefire was finally announced today between all the Ukrainian combatants. How long it will last is anyone’s guess, but the plans include bringing in the OSCE monitors quickly.

Things will be quiet long enough to get prisoners exchanged, as all sides want that. But it seems the EU is not waiting on sanctions for any reason. I had been thinking the triggering of the next round would hinge on seeing if a cease fire was agreed upon.

I had assumed that with a failure of the talks attributed to Russia somehow that would be their cover for launching another round. But the talks were successful, and what the EU dummies have done is announce that they are going ahead with the sanctions anyway on Monday. You just can’t make this stuff up.

Did the new EU Council President Donald Tusk, the great Russia hater, have a key role in this reckless decision? Are they doing this to force Putin to launch the counter-sanctions on all EU car, truck and bus imports, thinking they could spin that as Russian aggression and pour more fuel on the partisan fire for, “We have to teach those Rooskies a good lesson”?

On the contrary, the lesson that needs to be taught is one to the EU itself and especially its leadership, who seems bound and determined to mirror Ukraine’s killed and wounded with economically killed and wounded in Europe. With this totally irresponsible policy they are attacking Russia and themselves at the same time.
