Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Economic Policy Konstantin Dolgov spoke about the US attempts to “throw back” Russia with the help of sanctions. This is reported by the Prime agency.
According to him, the main goal of the United States is not to resolve the conflict in Ukraine, but to eliminate Russia as one of Washington’s main competitors for influence in the international arena. “The Americans will try hard to deprive us of high technology – IKEA will return, and technology companies have left our market for a long time. All that remains is to do everything ourselves, ”Dolgov predicted.
He also noted that the United States uses sanctions to consolidate the political situation that has developed in the world. The senator said that at the moment, the interests of politics prevail over the economy. “This is the reason for the decisions being made now, which look paradoxical from an economic point of view,” Dolgov said, citing the visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan as an example.
In July, First Deputy Head International Committee of the Federation Council Vladimir Dzhabarov said that the US anti-Russian sanctions are pushing the European Union into the abyss. He also drew a parallel between the current “zombification” of Europe and the policies of Adolf Hitler.
