The desire to exclude the Russian Federation from the world economy will have the opposite effect. This was stated by the First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Energy Committee Igor Ananskikhcommenting on the desire of the G7 countries to completely ban the transportation of Russian oil to Pravda.Ru.
According to the Ananskys, a group of companies unfriendly to the Russian Federation have been purposefully coming up with a plan for six months now on how to worsen the life of Russia and its citizens. However, in the end, everything turns out the other way around. The deputy says that Western companies forget that Russia is the largest country in the world and one of the largest players in the international arena.
“Time has already shown that it is impossible to limit Russia and remove it from the international economy. Therefore, all these sanctions are returned to those countries that impose them against Russia. And I must say that no one here doubts that further sanctions will lead to exactly the same effect,” Ananskikh said.
The deputy noted that Moscow had already managed to increase import substitution in a number of areas. Ananskikh also said that Russia sells energy carriers and energy resources not only to Europe, but also to the east and south. He is convinced that the sanctions that the West will impose will still return like a boomerang to these countries and their inhabitants.
“And I would still recommend thinking about what the leaders of Western countries need to do to make life easier for their residents. And the exclusion of the Russian Federation from the world economy will only lead to the opposite effect,” Ananskikh concluded.
The countries of the “Big Seven” (G7) thought about how to fully disable services, which allow to transport Russian oil and oil products. It is clarified that a complete ban on Russian oil can be introduced if its cost is not agreed upon by international partners.
