According to Chizhov, Europeans are already seeing the consequences of anti-Russian sanctions, which are expressed in rising inflation and other economic problems. Therefore, according to him, it is premature to talk about the seventh sanctions package. =”Russian Permanent Representative to the EU questioned the introduction of the seventh package of sanctions” />
Russian Permanent Representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov
It is at least premature to talk about the seventh package of anti-Russian sanctions from the European Union. About this in an interview with Izvestia said Russia's Permanent Representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov.
“As for the sanctions against Russia, they literally fired the first few packages. Fifth— already with some difficulty <…> When accepting the sixth package, they tried to touch the topic of the oil embargo— turned out with a fairly noticeable withdrawal. Now everyone, including your colleagues, is starting to talk about the seventh package. Well, at least it's premature,” — said the permanent representative.
According to him, already “even the blind sees” what economic problems Europe faced after the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions. “The situation is quite serious. Inflation in the Eurozone reached 8.1%. This has not happened since the creation of the euro area, — Chizhov emphasized.
He also said that despite what is happening, the normalization of relations with the European Union is still possible. “Not all bridges are burned. But the majority. Let's see what will happen next. In any case, there will be no return to business as usual, this cannot be. We understand it, and they understand it. This means that it will be a new system of relationships that has yet to be created, — concluded the diplomat.
After the start of the military operation in Ukraine, many countries began to impose or tighten sanctions against Russia. Hundreds of Russian companies, banks, carriers, as well as individuals: officials, parliamentarians, public figures, representatives of the media and culture were subject to restrictions. The EU, the US and the UK have imposed sanctions against the country's top leadership, including against Vladimir Putin, foreign and defense ministers Sergei Lavrov and Sergei Shoigu.

In early June, the European Union approved the sixth package of sanctions against Russia. It included, among other things, a partial embargo on the supply of Russian oil, which the EU countries could not agree on for about a month. Sanctions also included the National Settlement Depository (NSD), through which the Ministry of Finance services debts.
President Vladimir Putin has previously warned the EU countries about the “intractable consequences” with continued sanctions pressure. In mid-June, he said that the losses of the EU economy due to anti-Russian sanctions could exceed $400 billion.
