This has a very bad taste, as EU-Citizen this is a disgrace but everybody should know some things. Those illegal Sanctions for what ever phony reasons doesn’t have any democratic backing in the EU what so ever. The EU-Council + EU-Commision AKA EU-Junta are totaly illegitimate unelected corrupt cleptocratic Gangs of Criminals – NO EU-Citizen has Voted them Ever, the EU Citizens are NOT allowed to vote for/against them – they are selected + installed in a shady Mafia-Style gatherings, even the so-called EU-Parliament has no say in their ‘selection’ just to rubber stamp them in a farcical dog and… Read more »

As usual, Alexander, a very clear explanation of what is going on. The US/EU (non)sanctions are yet another example of their petty and pretty ineffectual manoeuvers against Russia. The US must be fully aware that the “new” sanctions are practically identical to the old ones, so why are they doing it? Is it done solely to put on a Tough-on-Russia show for the US population? The US is still importing Russian gasoline, other fuels, and lubricants, unwrought platinum in various forms, and shrimp and other crustaceans, and until October 2020 under the old (now transformed into “new”) sanctions, was still… Read more »

The Fourth Reich is preparing us for WW3 against Russia and China.

I suspect Mr Putin is laughing up his sleeve. He probably doesn’t care one bit about the US/EU posturing. All power to Mr Putin.

Having been to Russia many times, I would say that “All Power to Russia” is a better slogan. Putin is less a dictator than Turdeau [sic] of Canada or Presidentess [sic] Harris of the USA, or Johnson and Macron of the Fourth Reich or Jacinda Ardern in a midget nation of inbreds somewhere South of China.

Much credit to Putin for saving Russia from the West and its agent, Yeltsin, but a lot of credit goes to the entire command structure which consists of the Russian people.

Jacinda Ardern, a dictator, with a description of NZ as: “a midget country of inbreds somewhere south of China”. Seriously? You are bagging other countries and leaders – have you had a good look lately at the shitshow that is yours? I have seen it before in group discussions and of course Trump’s comments about how NZ is doing really badly with the pandemic, and we have people quarantined in “concentration camps”. As an adopted Kiwi, I have nothing but gratitude for the way I have been treated here by various governments, arriving without taking citizenship or even applying for… Read more »

Navalny is a crook, a bigot, a psychopath and a foreign agent. What is not to arrest!?

He’s so amazingly immune to the deadliest poison on Earth, we should harvest him for his organs.

First, he was “poisoned” with his tea. Then it was his water bottle after consulting with the German and US handlers. Thank God his wife brought the bottle along and no one died. Then it amazingly was found on his underwear. All this information came from the accusers. Anyone who believes this story is a f-ing retard. We learned Navalny is stronger than Superman. He eats Novichok (which is more dangerous than VX nerve gas) and shat it out. That’s tough. It may even make an American just question the efficacy of Novichok. Since all Russian things are garbage and… Read more »

Thank you Mr. Mercouris. It is nuanced explanations like this one that are sadly missing from the US media. I truly appreciate your insight.

Thank you Alexander for just being you. And thanks to that other great reporter Alex Christoforou. I listen to the MSM on both sides of the pond and think the world has gone mad (which it has) but when I turn to your platform it gives me hope of some sanity out there.

Those sanctions in the name of that irrelevant traitor Navalny, who wants the US and it’s poodles in the EU to try and bring Russia down. Navalny is in the same swamp as Lord Haw Haw, Vidkun Quisling and Juan Guaidó. That just sums up the western politicians and their swamp creatures in the media.

Ha !! Thank you Alexander for this explanation . We are gradually seeing more sanctions thrust upon Russia , but so far only for irrelevant items not really needed . Maybe Mr Putin needs to put the price of his Rocket Engines up to recompense any losses for previous sanctions , hmmmmm .
