That is, the EU adopted some new sanctions against Russia and/or extended older ones.
Whether you like and agree with reincorporation of Crimea into Russia (what you call annexation, and we do not in no case); whether you like the new Nazi government of Kiev, Ukraine, bloodily oppressing the anti-Junta rebellion in Donbass region of Ukraine, you have to admit one simple thing:
no one could ever invent a better date to deeper spoil relations and widen the gap between Russia and the EU.
Just because this date has a deeply sacral meaning for ALL RUSSIANS.
On June 22б 1941 the second version of the European Union, EU v2.0 (taking the Napoleonic Europe for the EU v1.0), headed by Adolf Hitler, attacked the USSR and so started what we call the Great Patritic War. On the one hand, the War brought immense suffering and bloodshed to our people and lead to the invention of the "Final Solution" by the Hitlerites.

The consequences of the GPWar were way heavier for the country, than any volume of modern sanctions. Yet we not only won the war and survived as a great Soviet nation (of many many ethnicities); we restored our economy and wellbeing all by ourselves, without any foreign assistance. For the USSR, there was nothing like the Marshall Plan for Europe.
And now some big but stupid Euroguys put on us more sanctions on this day?
Fuck you the EU Council. Fuck off Frau Mogherini.
Just like Napoleon or Hitler, you failed at that very moment when you decided to fight Russia.
