Russian black list as a boomerang for Moscow

Due to “black list” of European politicians who are forbidden to enter Russia, Moscow could ruin its chance to ease the sanctions from the West, writes “Forbes”.

The paper writes that by banning 89 European politicians from entering Russian terotory, Moscow seriously risks suspension of sanctions planned later this year. “It seems as if Russia wants to extend sanctions into 2016.”, says Forbes columnist Kenneth Rapoza.
Among others, some of the blacklisted politicians are Secretary-General of the Council of the European Union Corsepius Uwe, former British Prime Minister Nick Clegg and former Belgium Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt. Clegg claimed that Russia has no right to host the World Cup in 2018,while Verhofstadt pleaded for the introduction of sanctions to Moscow during the protests in Kiev last year.

Forbes reminds that, due to the reunification of the Crimea and Russia in March last year, USA and EU have banned certain Russian politicians from entry into their territory, while economic sanctions against Russian companies were introduced two months later. Except criticizing Russian policy towards Ukraine, the West is dissatisfied for the support of Russia towards the president of FIFA, Sepp Blatter. They also noted that Russian president believes that Blatter is a victim of the “American witch hunt”,  and also points out that Putin is afraid that politicians like former British Prime Minister, will boycott World cup 2018 in Russia.
