Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A mix of some news items with very unfounded allegations working for some propaganda outfit. Ever since the MH17 crash in Donbas in July 2014, Rutte has supported every Pentagon and CIA narrative anti-Russia. The Dutch too were consistent with the Tories in Great Britain.

Moreover, Ministry for Climate and Energy granted 25 exemptions, allowing Dutch entities to continue purchasing energy from former Gazprom enterprises. According to the Ministry, 150 businesses and organisations, including municipalities, schools and water boards, benefit from the waivers.

Netherlands rebukes Biden

The Netherlands is a founding member of the European Union and NATO. In a historical move, it has become the first country to withdraw sanctions against Russia. Additionally, its decision to waive sanctions has both symbolic and direct implications.

Waving off sanctions and helping Russia to evade sanctions hasn't been done so openly by any other western country yet. It proves that the European country values its sovereignty more and is ready to refuse to walkon the path shown by USA.

It is a major blow to Biden's efforts to unite Europe against Russia to fill American coffers and destroy Europe. Europe needs an independent foreign policy and Netherlands has shown how it's done.

Also, this is just the beginning, as the winter approaches, the heat of sanctioning Russia is only going to increase among European countries. The cracks in the EU are only going to widen. This move by the Netherlands will have a domino effect and the meltdown is only going to grow as the winters are now around the corner.
