The bigger question arising from Borrell’s disaster in Moscow today is if the European Commission that claims to have geopolitical ambitions has any foreign policy.
After Borrell’s debacle in Moscow & the EU’s vaccine disaster the EU needs to get serious very fast or…? https://t.co/TrVKz5ceIe

So, Borrell’s Moscow trip in full:
+ Tells Lavrov no sanctions likely for @Navalny jailing, literally as Navalny is being tried in court once again
+ Calls for EU to approve Russia’s @sputnikvaccine, in boost to Moscow
+ Mid-talks, learns Russia is expelling three EU diplomats

Buying vaccine untested by a proper trial from Vladimir the Poisoner for EU? Are you insane? https://t.co/bEuOYkW9FG

Super mistake to make this trip and get humiliated by experienced Lavrov. They will never learn! Do not play with Russians if you do not understand them. Quite a shame.
