Европейские страны угрожают санкциями против самих себя, но не могут договориться

FT -- France says it could suspend its controversial deal to sell helicopter assault ships to Russia if more sanctions are adopted against Moscow over Ukraine – but only if Britain also takes action against Russian oligarchs in London.

One senior EU diplomat involved in the sanctions debate said backroom discussions are now focusing on how to come up with a “balanced package” of sanctions that would affect EU member states equally.

Mr Fabius said in an interview on Europe 1 radio on Tuesday. “It’s very complicated. On the one hand one can’t envisage supplying [Russia] indefinitely considering its behaviour. On the other hand there is the reality of jobs and the economy.”
