Director of the Institute of Economics of the National Academy of Sciences Vasily Gursky believes that the United States played with sanctions, thereby undermining its ideological foundation.
“The fact is that the US sanctions policy has a very deep ideological background. They traditionally consider themselves an exclusive nation, and they have such a” religious “mission – to bring the light of democracy and market economy to all other countries under US control,” he said.
Formerly First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Economic Policy Nikolay Arefiev said that anti-Russian sanctions hit the position of the United States in the world.
“Here I can agree with the President Vladimir Putinwho said that economic sanctions are a double-edged weapon that affects both those who imposed these sanctions and those who received them,” he concluded.
