Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thanks.

As far as I read the article the tweet linked, it is the Council that makes a decision to sanction, on a proposal from the Commission.

And if it is limited to sanction foreign entities, I assume that if somebody in EU would do a "Today in RT" web page and just quote liberally fron rt.com (which they reach through a VPN), they could presumably not be sanctioned as they are a EU domestic entity. Put ads on it and you have a commercial enterprise. Might trip over copyright legislation though.

Yep, that's pretty much my understanding of the decision and implementation processes in the EU. The Commission does the grunt work. The final word belongs to the Council, composed of each of our respective country elected government( Macro for France, Scholz for Germany, Draghi for Italy and so on).
