EU diplomats have agreed to extend sanctions against Russia for another six months over its role in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Brussels has tied any dropping of sanctions to the full implementation of a peace deal.

I don't think anyone expected anything else did they?
It will be interesting to see how Germany gets on over its proposed direct gas pipeline from Russia, that cuts everyone out of the loop if allowed. No transit fees for certain countries.

It would be interesting to know, just who is paying the price for these sanctions. I suppose it depends on who is asked the question.

Re: Russian Sanctions

After Litvinenko, more sanctions against Russia would be pointless – and hypocritical

So now we know. We have waited 10 years to be told that the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, is an unprincipled thug. He gets his minions to rub out his enemies and traitors, such as Alexander Litvinenko, even when they are living abroad.

Holding interminable inquiries into “historical crimes” is the new bloodsport for the British legal classes. They dominate each evening’s news. A high court judge has sonorously intoned that Putin is not very nice. Real men drop drone bombs on their enemies in foreign parts; dastardly Russians poison cups of tea – and fail to wash the pot afterwards.

Killing one’s enemies abroad is odious, be they in London or Syria. But economic action would only strengthen Putin and hurt the Russian people...

Handling Russia during the reign of its latest self-styled strongman needs patience and cunning, not the kneejerk of “more sanctions”. The killing of one’s enemies abroad is odious, be they in London or Syria. But we do it too

Re: Russian Sanctions

He was a double agent & considered to be a traitor by Russia, proper "Spooks" stuff I reckon.

It wasn't the murder of Litvinenko that was the worry to the UK, it was the method used.

Re: Russian Sanctions

Putin Corners Himself in Ukraine. We Would Be Crazy to Placate Him Now

The recent backroom bilateral talks between the United States and Russia about Ukraine have caused anxiety in the region, raised hopes that sanctions could be lifted, and elevated Russian President Vladimir Putin's status to super power level.

All are counterproductive.

Since the bilateral talks and optimistic statements by US Secretary of State John Kerry about possible peace in Ukraine, Russian proxies in Ukraine responded by moving people and weapons westward from Donetsk and re-escalating violence near Mariupol, according to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.

Clearly, offering an olive branch doesn't work. Only tightening the noose will.

Re: Russian Sanctions

It will in my opinion be EU States (if any) that break the sanctions, its hit them more than the US. Plus the current financial problems individuals countries are having.
Germany seems adamant that Nord 2 should go ahead.

I think that’s a pretty safe bet.

And the argument seems to be that sanctions will only be extended if Ukraine eliminates corruption and permits a referendum in (Russian occupied) Donbas! Not going to happen.

Not about Russia honouring Minsk before lifting sanctions. After two failed Minsks & countless ceasefire agreements I think the EU has given up on that tack. About as much chance of a diplomatic solution in Ukraine as there is in Syria.

It is indeed a sick world.

Re: Russian Sanctions

Read an interesting theory recently; according to the write Putin is a real history nut and fascinated by the past Russian Czars' exploits. He feels he has a duty to replicate the past for the sake of the nation.
Apparently he feels that Russia has a right to Ukraine because Peter the Great first invaded it and annexed it for the Empire. Also, Catherine the Great extended her sphere of influence as far as Beirut, so is there any [I]deja vue[I] here?
I'm no historian; what do others think?

Pretty much spot on I should say Kanga.

Maybe time for the UK to invade the USA, India, Australia etc for the same reason.
