MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. The European Union’s publication of another black list despite the Minsk agreements demonstrates "how slow and inert is the Brussels red tape unable to keep up with the pace of real-life politics," a Russian lawmaker said on Monday.
Another European Union’s blacklist of 19 persons "was surprisingly out of place, taking into account that a most arduous round of Minsk talks between the leaders of the Normandy Four had just yielded good results," Konstantin Kosachev, the chairman of the international committee of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house, wrote in his blog on the Federation Council’s official website. "And at this very moment, the European Union’s bureaucratic machine produces a document which obscenely runs counter to the spirit and the letter of the Minsk agreements."
The mediatory mission of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande demonstrates that as an institution the European Union "is unable to solve problems," he noted. "In conditions of acute crisis, Europe’s leading politicians had to act in bypassing Brussels and all those who takes pleasure in putting obstacles on the path of any progress in relations with Russia."
