European Union countries on Thursday approved new punishing sanctions against Russia, including an EU embargo on coal imports in the wake of evidence of torture and killings emerging from war zones outside Kyiv.

Sanctions like this?

The organizers of the European Tree of the Year Contest said they felt compelled to join the activities aimed at the international isolation of Russia.

Therefore, they have put the Russian Federation out of the running for the international European Tree of the Year contest.

Those organizers say the exclusion of Russia from the competition is a step that must be understood in the context of international efforts to isolate Russia in order to stop the war.

Yes, sanctions on bank accounts and confiscating yachts is nothing compared to the isolation felt knowing that a Russian tree will not win tree of the year.
