Russian Oligarchs: are sanctions poorly targeted?

William JULIÉ points out that the criteria for the sanctions taken by the European Union can sometimes be vague.

He specifies that the purpose of these sanctions is to influence the position of the Russian government to stop the conflict. However, he explains that these sanctions can be ineffective as evidenced by the situation in North Korea.

Finally, William JULIÉ replies that the fact that French nationals are not listed even though they have commercial ties with Russia raises questions about the non-discrimination principle.
