That is not what the Russians are saying;

Russia files lawsuit in WTO against U.S. tariffs
Source: TASS

MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. Russia filed a lawsuit with the World Trade Organization (WTO) against duties imposed by the United States on steel and aluminum. Russia also requested consultations with the United States in the framework of the WTO dispute settlement procedure, Russian Economic Development Minister Maxim Oreshkin said on Friday.

"Russia filed a lawsuit with the World Trade Organization against additional US duties on steel and aluminum, and sent a request for consultations with the United States as part of the WTO dispute settlement procedure in connection with additional duties on steel products and aluminum," according to the Ministry’s press service.....


Oreshkin added that, in addition to Russia, China, India, the European Union, Canada, Mexico, and Norway had earlier filed complaints against the United States with the WTO.

Consultations with the United States will be the first stage of the dispute resolution procedure in the WTO for the parties to search for mutually acceptable ways to settle claims. "If during the consultations such ways are not found, Russia will be able to apply to the WTO with a request for the establishment of an arbitration group to review the dispute," Oreshkin said.

The company filed a lawsuit this week in the United States Court of International Trade demanding exemption from import duties similar to those given to Brazil, Mexico, and Canada. Severstal says that the tariffs create "irreparable damage" to its trading company Severstal Export Miami Corp.

Well, he is trying now the same tactics with the dutch prime minister.

With such allies, who needs enemies?
(^ That's a quote from the EU president btw. This is how far things have gone.)

Thanks from Hollywood

The population of the EU is about 500 million whereas the population of the US is around 325 million. Trump wants tiny nations, like the pop of all the EU countries are less than 100 million, it gives the US greater power over them individually, which is why they created the EU. The breakup of the EU is the demise of the euro and is much better for the dollar. Putin would love nothing better to break up the EU as well.

Along with breaking up or fatally wounding NATO, it's one of Putin's objectives, and, evidently, Trump's as well.
