EU member states must stop fearing Russia
To adopt more severe sanctions on Russia, all European Union member states must stop fearing Russia, Krisjanis Karins said in an interview with the TV3 channel on April 6, 2022.
The new package of EU sanctions is not as tough as Karins wanted it to be, already at the start of the war, but the sanctions are already “unbelievably stricter” than any sanctions ever applied to a country. For the time being, EU member states are not ready to sanction the entire energy sector, but it is good that they are at least starting with coal, the Prime Minister said.
“The work is not over. Talks with partners are ongoing, it is essential that all measures are taken jointly,” Karins stressed.
