Russian Security Chief Says Sanctions are Not Collapsing the Russian Economy
Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolay Patrushev believes that the Collective West committed a grave error by imposing massive sanctions on Russia. In fact, he believes that the assumption that these sanctions would collapse the Russian economy turned out to be an erroneous assumption, according to his remarks in the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper.
Patrushev stated that the Collective West wants to economically degrade Russia. “Many Western companies left the Russian market under the pressure of Washington. However, they made a serious mistake on the expectation of the collapse of our economy and growth of the protest mood,” Patrushev observed.
“The West is realizing an idea of such technological paradigm over the last decade, where only it should flourish, while the fate of the peripheral of socioeconomic development is prepared for the rest of world. That is why their leaders are furious in view of the balanced reaction of Russia to the sanctions pressure,” the Secretary of the Russian Security Council said in a concluding statement.
The Collective West is absorbed by arrogant assumptions about Russia, especially its economy. With the ineffectiveness of Western sanctions against Russia on full display, the assumption that Russia is a gas station masquerading as a country has been thoroughly debunked.
Russia’s economy is much stronger than expected and it has now been able to exploit the new world of multipolarity by strengthening its relations with Eurasian heavyweights such as China and India. Sometimes a hard dose of reality is needed for political fanatics to recognize the error of their ways.
