New global problems predicted by sanctions against Russia

New global problems predicted by sanctions against Russia

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev today predicted a wide range of global problems as a result of the sanctions imposed by the United States and its allies on this country.

“New regional military conflicts will arise in places where the situation has not been resolved peacefully for many years, or the important interests of the main international actors are ignored,” the senior official wrote on his Telegram channel.

The former prime minister and former Russian president considered it inevitable to activate terrorist groups that will take advantage of the fact that the Western authorities are currently focusing on the conflict with the Eurasian nation.

He warned that “new epidemics will start due to the refusal of sincere international cooperation in the sanitary and epidemiological field or the use of biological weapons.”

The day before, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that Western actions against his country are hurting the economies of countries imposing sanctions and causing, to a large extent, a global crisis.

“Its authors, guided by short-sighted and exaggerated political ambitions and Russophobia, are doing more harm to their national interests, economies and the well-being of their fellow citizens,” he said at an online government meeting discussing economic issues.

In his opinion, the continuation of the policy of “sanctions obsession” against Russia will have more serious and difficult to reverse consequences for the citizens of the European Union and the poorest countries in the world.
According to Putin, the blame for the global consequences of sanctions against Russia lies with Western countries, which are ready to sacrifice the rest of the world for their hegemony.

The President warned that several countries are already at risk of suffering from starvation and stressed that if punitive measures against this country continue, consequences that are difficult to reverse for the European Union may appear.

In the past two months, the Moscow authorities have approved a set of economic and financial provisions to deal with more than 10,000 foreign measures applied against the country, most of them after the start of the military operation in Ukraine last February 24.

According to the Castellum.AI database, nearly 7,400 new penalties have been activated against this country since mid-February, in addition to more than 2,750 that were already in force.

Actions by the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, Australia and European Union countries targeted key sectors of trade, finance, energy, exports and aviation, among other priority areas of the national economy.
