Member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Anton Morozov explained the EU’s strategy by the need to maneuver between its own interests and the interests of the United States.
The EU certainly understands the priority of taking care of its own economy and citizens, therefore, for external visibility, they have in store anti-Russian tools. At least at the level of rhetoric.
“The European Union will secretly act in the interests of its own citizens, and simply show the United States and other anti-Russian states that they intend to repel and restrain us. But in practice, it seems to me, it is much more profitable for them to develop constructive interaction with Russia, “the Duma TV portal quotes Morozov.
