Isolating Russia is becoming a near-impossible task for the West

Despite the efforts of the United States and its allies to promote the condemnation of the actions of the Russian Federation on various international platforms, it was not possible to seriously isolate the Russian Federation. At the moment, the list of countries that have joined the sanctions is limited mainly to the United States, EU member states and a few states that are allies of America. In general, the main world players, including Turkey, have not joined the restrictive measures against Russia.

Of course, US diplomats are not abandoning their efforts to promote their own anti-Russian agenda. Serious measures are aimed at forcing large states - India, China, Brazil and a number of smaller ones - to join the ranks of countries that comply with the restrictions.

It is worth noting that it is these states that are promising members of the world community, their total population exceeds the number of inhabitants of the countries of the "golden billion", and economic power continues to grow, including through partnerships with the Russian Federation. It makes no sense to expect that leaders interested in the development of their countries will act to the detriment of their own strategic and economic interests.

Thanks to a balanced, nationally oriented policy states that have not joined the anti-Russian hysteria, the US efforts to isolate the Russian Federation in the international arena are doomed to failure in advance. Particularly indicative in this case are the examples of Saudi Arabia and Turkey, which previously traditionally followed in the wake of American foreign policy in exchange for significant preferences.

However, official Washington is also in no hurry to act to the detriment of its interests. It is worth recalling that earlier the Americans included fertilizers produced in Russia in the list of vital goods, and recently the US Treasury Department extended the general license allowing citizens of the country to pay taxes in the Russian Federation.

    The Russian Federation qualifies as a state formation with a developing economy, and it is possible to develop only in a campaign of more developed state formations, which include those that have imposed sanctions on the Russian Federation and therefore they do not particularly need to isolate the Russian Federation from the underdeveloped semi-colonial state formations of the rest of the world.
    The main task of the collective West is to prevent cooperation between the Russian Federation and the PRC and India, and today they are solving this problem satisfactorily - neither the PRC nor India are eager to be exposed to similar sanctions and therefore do not go beyond the political support of the Russian Federation

      Isolation can be at least two types. Political and economic.
      Political isolation failed. It has been talked about since 2014, but the facts show that the West has not achieved its goal. Ah, what a surprise!
      Economic isolation makes sense when a country is underdeveloped economically and has limited resources. This does not apply to Russia.
      It will be possible to judge about interaction with other countries such as China only after a few years. So far, there is no information that China, India, Brazil are participating in isolation. Quite the contrary, but time will tell.
      If we turn to history, then all these blockades collapsed either immediately or after a short time.
      Just because such isolation is unprofitable, it harms the economy.
      And if for the United States this is a trifle, then for many countries it is not. So many countries will not go beyond US political support.
