Note the anti-Russian propaganda tone in the supposedly Russian information outfit called Sputnik. "Moscow claims". There
is no claim there is the objective fact of EU sanctions against Russia. Sanctions take the trade outside the WTO and thus
no Moscow and no claim is involved.
The WTO is just like WADA, the IOC and the rest of NATzO dominated clown outfits. If the EU gets the WTO to engage in Orwellian
newthink about Russian "wrong doing", then Russia needs to give the WTO the middle finger. Free trade is an imperialist concept.
It only works for countries that can squeeze out competition from local companies in countries around the world and are themselves
not subject to substantial foreign corporate penetration. This works for the USA and the EU. Russia has no such transnational goon
squad and thus only opens itself up to imperial gang rape as it did under comprador Yeltsin during the 1990s.
The WTO is a joke anyway, because in every case where NATzO feels Russia is giving it "existential threat" competition, such as
with the MS-21, it engages in brazen economic sabotage. How was the severing of the material used to construct the MS-21
wings from composites justifiable under the WTO? This is just one example of forced import substitution. But the perps doing
the sabotage are crying to their front organization the WTO about "rules".
