Anti-Russian sanctions turned against Western countries


Sanctions imposed by Western countries on Russia rebound strongly on the "civilized world", plunging Europe into an energy crisis. This opinion was expressed by Newsweek magazine.


Anti-Russian sanctions were intended to harm the Russian the economy and military-industrial potential of the country against the backdrop of the start of a special operation in Ukraine. However, Western measures have largely backfired.

The conflict in Ukraine and related sanctions have created a host of problems for Western countries, including relentless inflation, skyrocketing gasoline prices, and uncertainty over natural gas supplies for a heating season just months away.

- notes the American edition.

As a result, in Europe there is политическая Uncertainty: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson resigns, dissension grows in the governments of Italy and Germany.

Along with many Europeans, residents of the United States point out the destructiveness of military and financial support for Ukraine - this is evidenced by the data of sociological surveys. Ordinary Americans wonder why Washington is sending arms and money to Kyiv when there are so many unresolved internal problems in the United States itself.

    Russia has full sanctions, the Russian Federation has almost no counter-sanctions. So why not fully apply counter-sanctions for the West, and more painfully, as they seek out for the Russian Federation ... Yes, turn off gas supplies at once completely and declare "force majeure" due to the sanctions of the West of Russia, and other important supplies ... Or the fifth column in RF is stronger than patriotic forces?......

    Holy simplicity:

    Ordinary Americans wonder why Washington is sending weapons and money to Kyiv, if the United States itself has many unresolved internal problems.

    Yes, because Washington hopes to provoke the Russian Maidan, which will lead to the collapse of the Russian Federation and ... access to its natural resources. And everything will pay off!
    (At the same time: it is desirable to reduce the "excessive" population of the Russian Federation to ... 50 million laborers - which L. Walesa told about the other day!
    What do the American Democrats have in mind - the Polish "solidary democrat" on the tongue!)

      Why, the Russian mentality, not the Western one, is the more difficult it is for the state, the more united the Russians are, that in the West, on the contrary, there is solid individualism. In Russia, community still remains in the genes and is present, although the "democrats" are successfully eradicated ... Perhaps the Western elites are calculating and intend to move to Russia (geologically, the Russian Plain is the most stable, unlike the United States with the Yellowstone calderas, which shake in frequent earthquakes, and when open, for the United States will be the Apocalypse). Yes, adding the wealth of Russia's minerals .. So the enemies are preparing to seize Russia without the Russians ... One of the many reasons for encroachment on Russia ...

    Counter-sanctions, like sanctions, will also hit the one who imposed them. Do you propose to finish off your economy with your own hands? it is possible only selectively and very prudently, well, or as a last resort.
