Russia blasts EU’s lifting of arms ban on Ukraine

MOSCOW: Russia said on Saturday that the European Union (EU) applied double standards after it decided to lift restrictions on military-related exports to Ukraine. The leaders of the EU member states “quietly agreed” on lifting restrictions on exports of gear to Ukraine that can be used for internal repressions, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement. “Exports of military technologies and equipment have also been allowed,” it added. Russia said the decision not only “permeated with double standards,” but went against the rules of exports control of military technologies and equipment adopted by the bloc itself.
