After the end of the war, sanctions against the Russian Federation will not be lifted

A cessation of hostilities is not enough to lift the sanctions imposed against the Russian Federation.

About this, as he writes BB.LV, Olaf Scholz, Chancellor of Germany, said yesterday on June 10 at a joint press conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić. He says there is also a need to improve the situation with Ukraine, TASS quotes:

“The sanctions that we have introduced – and now this is the sixth package of restrictions – and the sanctions of all other countries – this is not something that will end when the [конфликт]. A prerequisite is a change in the situation, an improvement in the situation, Russia’s understanding that it cannot dictate the terms of peace to Ukraine, but must conduct a dialogue with Ukraine and agree on an agreement that will guarantee the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.

Back in March, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke about the same. He said then that the reason for the lifting of sanctions against Moscow cannot be only a ceasefire.

June 3rd by the Council EU The sixth package of sanctions against Russia was approved. It includes, among other things, the phased out crude oil imports from RF. The European Union included in the measures a ban on insurance of tankers with Russian oil. Oil traders and shipowners argue that banning European companies from insuring tankers carrying Moscow’s oil is one of the biggest financial levers the bloc has at its disposal to cripple the Russian economy. In the sixth package of sanctions, the European Union also included the shutdown of Russian channels Rossiya24, TV center International, RTR Planeta. These resources will be disconnected from cable, satellite and internet broadcasts in the EU. Sputnik and Russia Today have already been banned in the European Union.

As our publication reported, stopped working in Greece Russian TV channels that were received through satellite “dishes”, both those that fell under EU sanctions and those not included in this list. Greece was one of the first countries to ban access to Russian state media online by blocking it on the Internet. It is noteworthy that on the splash screen, which is now seen by those wishing to get on Russian sites, it says – “forbidden for copyright infringement.” What does the political ban have to do with copyright, the Greek regulator did not explain.
