A diplomatic source in the permanent mission of one of the European Union member states in Brussels said that the EU leadership is not immeasurable after the United States to impose sanctions on Russia’s public debt.
“The issue of sanctions against Russia’s public debt is not being discussed. Not a single EU country has come forward with such an initiative. For such tough measures, a very serious reason is needed …. Something out of the ordinary must happen for the European Union to take this measure,” – said the source
Commenting on such a decision by Washington, he noted that the United States accused Russia of interfering in the American elections. At the same time, the Kremlin did nothing of the kind against the EU. And Brussels does not intend to follow Washington directly.
