Western countries imposed on Russia 11 A penalty in various economic sectors. But, so far, we have not seen those sanctions negative effects in equal proportions for what happened in the economies of Western countries on the Russian economy. The sanctions have not yet shown a noticeable impact on the Russian military course in Ukraine. And the Russian forces continue to advance at the expense of the Ukrainian forces, despite the continued support from the West. Does this mean that the magic has turned on the magician?
The US trade sanctions against Cuba for five decades, for example, have not been able to achieve the goals for which they were set. It did not bring down the political system, nor did it achieve a popular revolution against it, nor did it make Fidel Castro's regime change its orientations and policies.… On the one hand, and on the other hand, economists say that the sanctions were behind dragging Iran to the negotiating tables over its nuclear program in 2015. The cancellation of the nuclear agreement by the administration of former President Donald Trump and the imposition of more sanctions against Iran did not lead Iran to stop its aggressive expansionist policy in the region So far, it has not led to the fall of the mullahs' regime or a popular revolution against it. Rather, Iran has resumed uranium enrichment in its laboratories.. In the Libyan case, experts say that the economic sanctions against the Gaddafi regime forced it to accept responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing. 1988 and pay compensation. And it's true. But the Gaddafi regime did not fall during the sanctions period. There is also the example of sanctions against Russia itself, after its takeover of Crimea in 2014, which had only a slight negative impact on the value of the ruble for a short time.. In a study, described as the most comprehensive, conducted by academic experts on economic sanctions and their success, it was found through 170 A case that the study was exposed to, over a long period of time, that the success rate was partial, and did not exceed 34 percent. It depends on the type of political goals to be achieved. Why, then, does the West resort to imposing sanctions again and again, despite knowing in advance that they may fail to achieve policy goals? What is the real purpose of imposing it on Russia? Is it intended, for example, to cause a rapid collapse of the Russian economy, or to weaken it? Western economic experts believe that achieving the rapid collapse of the Russian economy is not possible. They agree that, over time, sanctions will succeed in achieving the goal of weakening him.
We cannot deny the fact that the sanctions, when imposed, weakened the value of the Russian ruble in Russia and abroad, and forced many international companies to close their offices in Russia.. But after a short period of time, the Russian currency managed to recover remarkably. The Russian ruble is now one of the strongest currencies in the world. This came as a result of the Russian government’s increase in oil exports to China and India, and the decrease in imports. On the other hand, economists assert that the impact of sanctions on the Russian economy is not immediate. In the sense that the Russian people will not suffer from starvation, but will have to accept living in a lower standard of living than it was, as a result of stopping the arrival of Western electronic equipment and devices needed to operate Russian factories, especially those established in partnership with Western companies, such as the French car company "Renault".. The factory after the withdrawal of the French did not stop manufacturing, but the manufactured cars will miss many of the luxury luxuries that characterized them.
