8:03 pm
and i think the decision was made today that today is the right day to announce this proposal after russia pushed to through word to those sham referendums and after they did clergy today at that said 99 percent of the people there were in favor of joining russia. so i think it was important for was on a fund aligned to send a strong message to the kremlin that the european union is, sir, keeping up the pressure that they are determined to make the russian regime pay for the escalation of the invasion of ukraine and of course she as a president of the european commission, wanted to show that she is providing the leadership that the european union needs. now, previous actions have not really shown the desired effect. and yet the e u as volume further and tougher trade restrictions at individual blacklisted. you think that makes sense? well, i think that sanctions imposed by the european union do have an effect on
