EU chief spent £70k on Baku trip but Brussels says releasing expenses cost TOO MUCH

A TOP EU chief spent an eye-watering €75,000 (£70,000) on a trip to Baku in Azerbaijan, shock documents have revealed.

Foreign affairs boss Federica Mogherini took a chartered flight to the South Caucasus region - as it emerged Brussels commissioners spent half a million of pounds on travel in just two months at the expense of taxpayers.

Eurocrats had desperately tried to withhold the information, claiming making travel expenses public would create an “excessive administrative burden”.

Trump on collision course with Germany over US bid to dominate energy market

Klaus Schaefer, CEO of German energy company Uniper, said "strategic economic interests" were behind Mr Trump's sanctions.

He predicted the United States will soon push its liquefied natural gas (LNG) into Europe in a bid to dominate the energy market.

Mr Schaefer said: "The core reason [for the sanctions] are strategic economic interests, meaning the targeted dominance of the US in energy markets.

"Uniper's readiness to finance the Nord Stream 2 project with other European partners arises from the conviction that this additional gas link makes economic sense and that our contribution to its financing will be profitable."

Bill Still: Turkey Can Occupy Europe in 3 Days

Turkey has used the migrant invasion as a political bargaining chip to force the EU government in Brussels to speed up their entry into EU membership.

The Turkish paper backs up their claim based on the military readiness work of political scientist George Friedman, founder of Stratfor. Turkey has a very large, well-equipped standing army. As the Turkish paper put it: “Friedman said the Turks could defeat Germany in one afternoon and France in one hour.”

“Germany has abandoned by its citizens. If we start in the morning, we can have our evening prayer in Bellevue Castle.” – the official residence of the president of Germany.

Why?

Two years ago, a survey was conducted asking how likely citizens were to fight for their country. It found that only 18% of Germans would fight for Germany, only 29% of the French would, and only 27% of the British would defend their nation.

Putin visits Abkhazia without seeking Georgia's consent, NATO not happy

Georgia on the night of August 8, 2008, fired from the South rocket launcher "Grad"at South Ossetia, when Georgian troops attacked the republic and destroyed part of its capital Tskhinvali. Russia, defending the inhabitants of South Ossetia, many of whom took Russian citizenship, sent troops into the republic and after five days of fighting pushed out the Georgian military.

After the "five-day war" in August 2008, Russia recognized the sovereignty of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, formerly part of Georgia. Russian leaders have repeatedly stated that this decision is not subject to revision. In response, Tbilisi severed diplomatic relations with Moscow.

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany .

What the Act says

EU Disavows Results of Venezuelan Constituent Assembly Election

Dear EU. It's really none of your business. And it was that exact same attitude by the US regarding the Crimean Independence Referendum which has brought the EU closer to all-out war with Russia.

Austria fears losing huge projects due to new US sanctions against Russia

New US anti-Russian sanctions might lead to Austrian companies losing multibillion-dollar projects in Russia, the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber told TASS. Commercial Counsellor of the Austrian Embassy in Moscow Rudolf Lukavsky prepared a special analysis of a possible impact of the new US sanctions against Russia on Austrian business, and also gave a detailed account of the impact of the existing EU restrictions. "US sanctions against Russia will have a strong and negative impact on Austrian goods and exports to Russia when the law finally comes into force. The question remains - what is the extent of that impact? It is possible that Russia will take retaliatory measures". He sees the greatest threat in potential expansion of US sanctions on such important sectors for Russia as railways, shipping, metallurgy and mining. "First of all, state-owned company Russian Railways and the state shipping company Sovcomflot.

Poland has no plans to deploy US missiles on its territory — top diplomat

Poland is not considering the deployment of US medium-and short-range missiles on its territory for the moment, Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said in an interview with Kommersant business daily.

The Polish government would like to receive technology for the production of cheap ground-to-air missiles. In total, the program of the Polish party contains 12 points.

South Ossetia to close border with Georgia to commemorate August 8 victims

Overnight to August 8, 2008, Georgia attacked the breakaway region of South Ossetia. Moscow stood up to defend civilians and Russian peacekeepers who had been deployed in the region since 1992. As a result of the five-day war more than one thousand people were killed, 72 Russian military personnel among them. On August 26, 2008, Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia.

"The republican State Security Committee informs that due to commemorations timed to coincide with the ninth anniversary of the Georgian aggression, operation of the checkpoints on the border of South Ossetia and Georgia is planned to be provisionally suspended," the official said.

Milk-Bar Clausewitzes, Bean Curd Napoleons: In the Reign of Kaiser Don

Political Science from Fred On Everything!

Why do those inadequate little men in Washington and New York dream of new wars? Because the empire is near a tipping point.

Washington must either either start a war in Korea, or gets faced down by the North, its carriers ignored, its bombers “sending signals” and making “shows of force” without result. For the empire this is a loss of face and credibility, and an example to others that America can be challenged.

Germany in three days and France in one hour’ Shock threat to EU from Erdogan backers

WARMONGERING rhetoric is being spewed by Turkey towards Europe after a newspaper close to the Turkish regime declared the country could overrun Germany in three days.

Newspaper Yeni Söz, closely aligned to the government, made the outlandish claim on the front page of its daily newspaper.

Carrying the provocative headline "Turkey can occupy Europe within 3 days”, the move is the latest in a political spat between Ankara and Berlin.

Turkey has been vying to join the EU for more than a decade, with official negotiants to become a member dragging into their 12th year.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attempted to use the migrant crisis as a bargaining chip, striking a deal with Brussels over the crisis in exchange for political sweeteners, which included kick-starting their membership bid.

The paper said: "Friedman said the Turks could defeat Germany in one afternoon and France in one hour, if they have the courage to fight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This very dangerous rhetoric, coupled with the post-coup, dictatorial crack down behaviour by the Turkish government against its own people, is not helping to improve the relationship between Europe and Turkey one bit.

EU Imposes More Sanctions Against Russia, Blacklists Deputy Minister

The European Commission has decided to broaden sanctions against Moscow on Friday. As RT notes, more Russian individuals and firms accused of delivering Siemens gas turbines to the Crimea have been blacklisted.

The updated blacklist includes Russian Deputy Energy Minister Andrey Cherezov, the head of the department of operational control and management in Russia's electric power industry Evgeniy Grabchak and state firm Technopromexport CEO Sergey Topor-Gilka.

As we detailed earlier, this was expected.

The European Union is expected Friday to expand sanctions against Russian individuals and companies that were allegedly involved in the transportation of at least four Siemens turbines to Russian-controlled Crimea in violation of an international ban, according to Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would be willing to bet that Russia's retaliation will be both swift; and severely economically painful.

Russia: Pence Balkans comments expose Washington's Cold War ideology

Accusations made by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence that Russia is working to divide the Balkans from the West are destabilizing southern Europe and expose Washington's Cold War mentality, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday.

Pence made the comments on Wednesday in Montenegro on the final leg of a tour designed to reassure Eastern Europe of Washington's commitment to its security despite doubts sowed by U.S. President Donald Trump's lukewarm support for NATO.

"It is regrettable to note that Washington is sliding ever deeper into the primitive ideology of the Cold War era, which is completely detached from reality," the ministry said.

It had called on the United States to stop defaming Russia and its foreign policy, which it said was based on respect for allies and a readiness to work with international partners, the ministry said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Russian Foreign Ministry has to know to where all this Russia-demonisation is leading: there are those in the bowels of power in DC, who are just mad-dog crazy enough to envision a shooting war with Russia (China, Iran, or North Korea, take your pick) as a way to defuse the coming US economic crash, and to prevent the world from evolving into a more multi-polar economic environment which, ultimately - with the Unhinged, Surveilled State of America in decline - is nearly inevitable.

Unfortunately, those in the bowels of power in this country who desire this outcome, have managed to deliberately stay pig-ignorant of the real state of affairs, when it comes to our military.

I support and respect our military.

But the inevitable hard truth is this; at this moment in its existence, the US military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome against Russia and/or China (or Russia and Iran; Or China and North Korea.)

As most of you know who read this blog on a regular basis, I abhor war as a method of resolving geopolitical differences; that being said, if war is happening, all of our troops deserve the best of the best of the best, with money well and intelligently spent by the Pentagon, to insure that they get that.

The current military-industrial complex is very content in screwing over the Defense Department, as exemplified by Lockheed Martin's poster child for lousy engineering, non-existent planning, and cost containment, the F-35, which is still plagued with a zillion problems which should have been prevented in the first place.

This culture of non-functional weapons, and massive cost overruns has got to change, and fast.

US plans ‘global’ drills to counter Russia & other 'complex threats' – top US military official

The US military is shifting towards a “more global” exercise program in preparation to deter what they term a “more assertive Russia” as well as countering other complex threats, a senior officer commanding the US forces in Europe has said.
Trends
Russia-NATO relations
“What we’re eventually going toward is a globally integrated exercise program so that we (are)... all working off the same sheet of music in one combined global exercise,” Air Force Brigadier General John Healy, who directs the drills of US forces in Europe told Reuters.

Healy said troops need to be prepared for increasingly complex threats across all domains of war – land, sea, air, space and cyber sphere. The general went on to say the training must include rehearsing possible conflicts and take into account the global nature of the military threats facing the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia has nothing to justify this demonisation against it; the world is watching how the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America continues invading country after country - Afghanistan; Iraq; Syria; and Somalia- in order to accomplish regime change, and is very concerned about what the next country in the USSA's cross-hairs might be.

Right now, were I a betting woman, I would bet that the next two countries on the USSA's "high interest targets" list for a regime change do-over, are Iran and North Korea, although not necessarily in that order.

“The European Union. You think it’s anti-Israel, right?” Ivri begins. “Let me surprise you.”

Ivri then rattles off trade and tourism statistics meant to convince Israeli viewers of just how much the European Union benefits Israel. He also boasts that the EU is a customer for Israel’s weapons industry, particularly drones.

The EU “are the best neighbors we have,” Ivri concludes.

Italy impounds German NGO rescue boat suspected of aiding illegal immigration

Italian authorities on Wednesday impounded a German NGO's migrant rescue boat on suspicion of facilitating illegal immigration, police said.
The Iuventa, operated by the Jugend Rettet organisation, was "preventatively" impounded on the Italian island of Lampedusa on the orders of a prosecutor based in Trapani, Sicily, the state police force said in a statement.

"Enquiries begun in October 2016, and conducted with the use of sophisticated techniques and investigative technology, have produced circumstantial evidence of the motorboat Iuventa being used for activities facilitating illegal immigration," the statement said.

More details were to be provided at an afternoon press conference.

The impounding of the Iuventa came as Italy began enforcing a controversial code of conduct for charity boats rescuing migrants in the Mediterranean.

‘We are ready': If US sanctions hurt European interests, EU can react ‘within days’ – Juncker

Europe will come up with an “adequate” response and “within days” if the newly-signed US anti-Russian sanctions law hurts the interests of European companies working with Russia, European Commission Head Jean-Claude Juncker has warned.

European interests should be always taken into account when it comes to enabling new US sanctions, Juncker said in an interview to the German ARD-Europastudio Brussel.

“We must defend our economic interests even against the US. And that is what we are going to do," Juncker said.

“We are ready,” he added, pointing out that EU reserves the right to take retaliatory measures in case its interests are violated. He also drew attention to the fact that the newly-signed US law can have “unpredictable” consequences for the EU in the field of energy security.

Killing Europe: US launches Sanctions War 2.0 against Old World

Besides the important political dimension of this law which calls on Russian authorities in the form of an ultimatum to curtail their political, military, and media activity beyond Russia's borders, the main aspect of this legislative initiative is its targeting of the Russian energy and banking sectors. The bill limits the maximum volume of investments allowed in oil and gas projects to the point that any company investing more than $5 million a year in Russian energy projects will automatically be subject to sanctions.

In other words, this aspect of the sanctions is also directed against European energy companies, in particular those party to the Nord Stream 2 project. The new sanctions also prohibit companies doing business in the US from participating in energy projects in which the Russian side owns less than 1/3 of shares.

"Neutral" Sweden to Host 20,000 NATO Troops

For three weeks in September 2017, Sweden will be turned into a military training ground. A third of the country, especially the capital Stockholm, the second largest city Gothenburg and the island of Gotland will be designated training areas. In total there will be about 20,000 participating soldiers, from the United States, Finland, France, Estonia, Norway and Denmark, in addition to soldiers from the host country. Historically, Sweden managed to stay out of war for over 180 years, from 1814 against Napoleon, until the the era after the collapse of the Soviet Union. This neutrality policy was, and still is, hugely popular in population and even with many politicians. The same goes for the policy of no nuclear weapons on Swedish soil...

Collateral Damage

Do they know what they are doing? When the U.S. Congress adopts draconian sanctions aimed mainly at disempowering President Trump and ruling out any move to improve relations with Russia, do they realize that the measures amount to a declaration of economic war against their dear European “friends”?

Whether they know or not, they obviously don’t care. U.S. politicians view the rest of the world as America’s hinterland, to be exploited, abused and ignored with impunity.

The Bill H.R. 3364 “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act” was adopted on July 25 by all but three members of the House of Representatives. An earlier version was adopted by all but two Senators. Final passage at veto-overturning proportions is a certainty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Congress was, collectively "too stupid" to understand that such a draconian suite of sanctions wasn't ultimately going to have severe unintended consequences, and bite the US economy in some very tender places, they are too stupid to be re-elected, period, end of discussion.

We are talking about the potential for trade wars coming up, with those trade wars becoming preludes to "hot wars".

NATO Jets Accidentally Invade Neutral Finland While Intercepting Russian Planes

Finland reports NATO jets were violating Finnish airspace for about a minute. This puts NATO's accusations that Russia's interceptions of western planes in the Baltic are often "unprofessional" in an interesting perspective. We can't remember an incident where Russian interceptors chasing NATO planes got lost an ended up in a neutral country, so who is the amateur here? Also; the two F-18 fighter jets belong to the Spanish Air Force. We're not surprised. Screw ups is exactly what you can expect when you uproot your air force and send it to "defend" skies 3,000 kilometers from home.

Pence’s visit to Montenegro seeks to stir up anti-Russian hysteria

US Vice President Michael Pence’ tour of Estonia, Georgia and Montenegro aims to add fuel to an anti-Russia propaganda campaign and sends a signal to the regional countries that the policy of sanctions will continue, Montenegrin politician Marko Milacic, one of the leaders of the country’s political opposition told TASS on Tuesday. Milacic, a journalist by profession leads the Resistance to Hopelessness political movement, which the incumbent Montenegrin authorities view as pro-Russian, pro-Serbian and anti-NATO. Pence arrived in Montenegro on a two-day visit on Tuesday... "It’s quite obviously that Pence’s tour of Estonia, Georgia and Montenegro seeks to boost the anti-Russian sentiments in these territories and to pin the NATO flag to the map of the country in the case of Montenegro," Milacic said. "The timing of Pence’s visit is not at all accidental. It fell on a period when the U.S. is working hard to toughen the sanctions against Russia.

Moscow notes SS collaborators gathering in Estonia contradicts EU’s anti-racism decision

The July 29 conference of Estonia’s Waffen SS division is a "shameful practice" that contradicts EU Council decisions aimed against racism and xenophobia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday. The ministry is convinced that Tallinn "embarked upon the deliberate promotion of Nazism," which is inadmissible for a modern European nation and a country that holds the rotating EU Council presidency. Conferences of former members of the 20th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS are held in Estonia on an annual basis. This year, the event took place on July 29 in the northeastern Estonian village of Sinimae.

The great EU coup! Poland and Hungary form new eastern bloc 'in bid to OVERTHROW Brussels'

POLAND and Hungary are forming a new Eastern powerhouse in a bid to outmanoeuvre Brussels.

The leaders of the two countries have been holding regular secret meetings in a bit to improve relations and work together.

One political expert said the two countries were putting the European Union (EU) on the spot by working towards their own power hub - with Brussels unable to “do much about it”.

Hungarian-Polish political scientist Dominik Hejj said: “The relations are very strong, and almost every week a Polish minister visits Hungary and vice versa.”

‘DISGUSTING’ Fury as French embassy uses Passchendaele to say EU 'brought peace' to Europe

FRENCH diplomats have been accused of rewriting history and politicising a generation’s sacrifice after penning a pro-EU tweet to mark the 100th anniversary of the battle of Passchendaele.

...

On its official Twitter account, the embassy posted to its 13,000 followers: “Today we commemorate #Passchendaele100. An opportunity to cherish peace, unity and solidarity brought by the EU.”

But the message immediately sparked fury amongst social media users, who accused French diplomats of politicising a 100-year-old tragedy and of wilfully trying to rewrite history in favour of the EU project.

'Liberal Arrogance': Budapest Bites Back at Austria's Call for More EU Sanctions

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has reacted fiercely to criticism of Budapest from Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern, who told the media that he supported sanctions against Hungary and Poland for a perceived failure to abide by "European values."

The row began last week, when Kern told the German newspaper Frankfurt Allgemeine Zeitung that EU funding for Hungary and Poland should be cut if they refused to comply with EU rules on asylum seekers and EU criticism of constitutional changes carried out at the national level.

White Genocide by Design: The Role of the Mass Media in the Destruction of the European People

“Miscegenation cannot be commanded, but it can be promoted. Depriving Whites of the possibility to be among themselves in terms of residence, study, work and recreation is one thing. Suggesting miscegenation in films, TV series and commercials is another thing. There is nowadays hardly any form of media that is not full of this race mixing propaganda, mostly in subliminal form, and it is the Jews who control the media.”

Austria to protect its interests if US applies anti-Russian sanctions to EU

Austria is ready to safeguard national interests in case the United States applies anti-Russian sanctions to European companies and intends to coordinate its action with the European Commission, the Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs told TASS on Monday. "We - in accordance with the position of the European Commission - are ready to act in case of necessity in order to protect national and European interests," official spokesperson of the Austrian foreign ministry Thomas Schn·ll said responding to a request for a comment on potential restrictive measures of the US against Russia. Austria’s OMV and Voestalpine engaged in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project keep an eye on the probable new sanctions of the US against Russia and stick to their agreements with Moscow, companies told TASS earlier.

The war games with the Caucasian state kicked off at the Vaziani and Camp Norio training areas near Tbilisi on Sunday.

The drills, considered "the largest ever" between Georgia and NATO, will run for two weeks, with some 2,800 military personnel from NATO states and their partners – the US, UK, Germany, Turkey, Slovenia, Armenia, Ukraine and Georgia – taking part.

Nations Substitution': Witnessing the 'Biological Extinction' of Europeans

Some European countries, namely Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are facing the so-called "substitution of nations," where the national ethnical majority is disappearing physically and biologically, and is being substituted by migrants, according to a recent report. Sputnik Italy discussed the issue with Daniele Scalea, the author of the report.

The recent report of the Italian-based Machiavelli Center of Political and Strategic Studies (Centro studi politici e strategici Machiavelli), "How immigration is changing Italian demographics" has revealed that a number of European countries are facing the "biological and physical extinction" of their national ethnicities.

Ethnic majorities in such countries as Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are gradually turning into ethnic minorities, while being "substituted" by incoming migrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this how people are forced to forget their history, as though it had utterly no meaning whatsoever?!?

Is this how national identity is erased?!?

George Soros must be dancing on the grave of Europe, that his money had such an effect in getting this accomplished.

No wonder they want BILLIONS from Britain! The EU’s poverty problem EXPOSED

POVERTY across the European Union has reached new levels while the Brussels elite continues to preach about unity and success.

More than a quarter of children in the 28-member state club are living below the breadline with the total number of poor predicted to reach 100million by 2020.

One in four Europeans are now affected by poverty, with the worst affected nations being in the eastern bloc.

The most recent figures suggest 119 million people were living in poor homes - at risk of poverty.

Figures from 2015 show more than a third of the population was at risk of poverty or social exclusion in Bulgaria, Romania and Greece.

Across Europe 27 percent of children now live in a poor households.

EU explores account freezes to prevent runs at failing banks

European Union states are considering measures which would allow them to temporarily stop people withdrawing money from their accounts to prevent bank runs, an EU document reviewed by Reuters revealed.

The move is aimed at helping rescue lenders that are deemed failing or likely to fail, but critics say it could hit confidence and might even hasten withdrawals at the first rumors of a bank being in trouble.

The proposal, which has been in the works since the beginning of this year, comes less than two months after a run on deposits at Banco Popular contributed to the collapse of the Spanish lender.

'Second Calais' grows in France as Macron pledges to rid country of migrant camps

Violence, alcohol abuse and reports of rape have become a daily routine for people in and around an illegal migrant camp in the town of Metz in north-eastern France, where "a second Calais" is said to be emerging.

Reports of appalling living conditions have been emanating from Metz, where hundreds of migrants have set up camp. Although the illegal site has been dismantled several times, more people arrive and start it all up again.

"The city of Metz was not prepared for the camp. The authorities emptied it, but now there are 700 refugees back there again. It's becoming a second Calais," a concerned local woman told RT's Charlotte Dubenskij.

'Revolt Against Brussels': Who Can Benefit From Putting Poland-EU Ties to Test

From the very beginning, the concept of a united Europe implied the integration of countries comparable in terms of economy, political values and judicial principles. However, this rule was broken in the early 2000s when a dozen Eastern European nations joined the bloc. Despite their geographical proximity to the "core" of Europe, they were totally different, economically, politically and mentally.

The current rift between Brussels and Poland is a remarkable example of the European Union reaping the fruits of its reckless eastward expansion, according to Gevorg Mirzayan, associate professor at the Department of Political Sciences of the Finance University under the Russian Government.

Imperial Folly Brings Russia and Germany Together

Economic war has been declared against Russia for at least three years now. The difference is this latest package also declares economic war against Europe, especially Germany.

That centers on the energy front, by demonizing the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and forcing the EU to buy US natural gas.

Make no mistake; the EU leadership will counterpunch. Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission (EC), put it mildly when he said, "America first cannot mean that Europe's interests come last."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These reckless sanctions are turning the whole world away from the US and towards Russia. The US Government is isolating the nation!

The Sanctions Blowback From the EU Begins

As we wrote last month, Germany and Austria have fumed that the sanctions threaten European energy interests, by targeting (among other European-Russian ventures) the Gazprom co-financed Nord Stream 2 pipeline between Russia and Germany. For the bill’s European enemies—among them the Netherlands and France, who have been quieter in their opposition than Germany—the sanctions are a thinly veiled excuse to promote American LNG exports and meddle in the European energy market. And top German business leaders are already mulling retaliation.

Philly Archbishop: Europe’s Future Has the Face of ‘Young Muslim Immigrants’

“If you want to see the face of Europe in 100 years, barring a miracle, look to the faces of young Muslim immigrants,” Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput told a group of Catholics Thursday.

Speaking at an annual conference of the Napa Institute in California, Chaput tied the future of civilization to a willingness to have children—an area where Muslims lead every other group.

“Islam has a future because Islam believes in children,” Chaput said. “Without a transcendent faith that makes life worth living, there’s no reason to bear children. And where there are no children, there’s no imagination, no reason to sacrifice, and no future.”

USA's new sanctions against Russia split European Union

The European Union will respond should the USA's new sanctions against Russia harm the interests of European companies, the Financial Times wrote.

According to the publication, it was chairman of the European Commission (EC), Jean-Claude Juncker, who announced the readiness of the EU to react to USA's move. The document prepared for the meeting of the European Commission also contains a requirement for Washington to publicly acknowledge (in written form as well) that the new sanctions would not show a negative impact on the interests of European businesses in Russia.

Europe fears the new sanctions against Russia may affect the implementation of a number of projects, which European companies have with Russia, such as Nord Stream-2, for example.

‘We told you so’: EU reaps bitter harvest of siding with US in sanctions row – Russia’s UN envoy

The EU has fallen victim of its unconditional support for the US sanction policy against Russia, Russia’s UN envoy Vasily Nebenzya told RT. Calling the state of US-Russian relations “worse” than that of the Cold War-era, Nebenzya said the two still have to cooperate.

The wave of anti-Russian sanctions coming from Washington is “unprecedented, baseless and illegal,” said Nebenzya, who is Russia’s new Permanent Representative to the UN.

He added that the EU should blame itself for becoming a victim of the side-effects of the US policy toward Russia as it previously followed in Washington’s footsteps as regards to sanction policy.

Finland's membership of NATO is off the agenda at present although the Finnish government does not rule out a prospect of this kind in the future, the Finnish ambassador in Moscow, Mikko Hautala said on Tuesday in an interview with the Moscow-based Kommersant daily. He said any country took an interest in having diversified plans of action and that is why nothing could be ruled out but the issue was not in the current plans. Finland is one of the five most advanced partners of NATO along with Australia, Georgia, Jordan, and Sweden. Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila said on June 11, 2016, in a speech at a congress of his Center Party that an application for membership of the North-Atlantic alliance would require a broad popular support. Opinion polls show that a possibility of NATO membership is supported by a minority of Finns.
