Director of the Roosevelt Foundation at the Moscow State University Yuri Rogulyov in an interview with RT commented on the statement of Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin that the sanctions imposed by the West on Russia will remain forever.
The truth is in this statement: for the US and several other countries of the West, economic or political pressure is a standard policy tool. In this sense, sanctions will always be. They will be used, but does not mean that they will act at any particular moment. There is also diplomatic pressure, through international structures, military and military. Here are the options that are considered in one form or another. But this does not mean that such problems will always exist: sanctions are an element of the policy of specific people who lead these institutions. But at the same time, based on the practice of Soviet-American relations, it is difficult to recall the time when the US did not resort to some form of pressure against the USSR, and then Russia, “Rogulyov said.
According to the expert, “Russia should strive to reduce the level of pressure, using foreign and diplomatic tools that do not exclude negotiations and resolution of contradictions.”
Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in an interview with the newspaper Kommersant said that the sanctions imposed by the West on Russia will remain forever. According to him, they will be lifted only if the country becomes weak again.
