Western economic sanctions against Russia

The confusion that the economies of Western countries are witnessing these days, as a result of the imposition of a series of economic sanctions against Russia after the latter’s forces invaded Ukraine, puts many question marks about their feasibility. The general and initial impression indicates that it was Russia who imposed economic sanctions against Western countries, and not the other way around. The rise in the prices of fuels and heating gas, as a result of the shortage in oil and gas supplies from Russia, has affected the living and industrial sectors, in addition to an increase in the prices of food commodities as a result of the shortage in grain supplies from Ukraine and Russia. Western media do not stop publishing reports about the remarkable deterioration of living conditions, and warn of the consequences of what the peoples of Europe will be exposed to in the coming winter as a result of the shortage in heating gas supplies. In Germany, there is fear that the wheels of the economy will stop spinning altogether, and that it will suffer a recession. There is a sudden rise in the rate of inflation suddenly, and governments resort to raising interest rates. These are all negative indicators that make it legitimate to question the feasibility of imposing sanctions. The website of the European Union on the Internet assures its visitors that the sanctions against Russia are working and achieving their goals, and at the same time it warns that the sanctions in order to succeed require strategic patience because they may take a long time to achieve their desired effect.. Strategic patience is a loose term and may mean a decade or more. Why do the peoples of the European Union and America have to suffer in order for the sanctions to achieve their goals?
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.

Не вижу в них ничего катастрофичного. ЕС вводит, Россия зеркально отвечает. Европейцы от этого как-то быстро приуныли и начали искать пути обхода собственных санкций, россияне же, согласно опросам, вообще не парятся на счет западных санкций и в целом поддерживают проводимую президентом политику.
