MOSCOW, (ST)-Russian  political analyst Alexander Berdnikov has stressed that the European Union's decision to extend the coercive measures imposed on Syria contradicts the international and humanitarian law and proves the European countries' subordination to the United States.

In a statement to SANA correspondent in Moscow, Berdnikov said that the failure of the United States in implementing its schemes in Syria has led it to work relentlessly so as to put more pressure on the Syrian people through depriving them from requirements of life, including food and the medical equipment necessary to confront coronavirus epidemic. He added that Washington is doing this while it continues to provide limitless support for terrorist organizations fighting the legitimate Syrian government.  

Renewing the coercive measures imposed by the European Union on Syria is clear evidence that the European countries are subordinates to the United States. It indicates the EU's hypocrisy, circumvention policy and lies concerning humanitarian assistance to the Syrian people. It also makes these countries partners in the terrorist war on Syria.
