The fact that such work by the European Commission began at the end of 2021, writes Politico, citing an official source, whose name is not called.

Allegedly, at that moment, US President Joe Biden, after a briefing by US intelligence officials on the concentration of the Russian military near the borders of Ukraine, "sounded the alarm."

After that, von der Leyen's team "secretly worked with the US administration on a package of sanctions that could be adopted if Moscow decided to send troops across the border."

With the beginning of the NWO, the European Commission was already ready for such sanctions, the newspaper writes.

On April 20, Joe Biden discussed with Ursula von der Leyen military and economic assistance to Ukraine, as well as the intention to impose new sanctions against Russia.
