German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, in an interview with Magdeburger Volksstimme, called the sanctions of Western states against Russia effective and correct. According to him, Russian President Vladimir Putin was surprised by the unity of Europe on this issue.

Western sanctions are effective and correct. They are an important means of increasing pressure on Russia. Because the costs for Moscow are significant. The longer this goes on, the greater the damage to Russia will be. For me, the exit of Germany (from among the countries supporting the anti—Russian sanctions policy – approx. “”) is impossible. Europe’s resolute and united response to this war surprised Putin. He didn’t expect this

Negative consequences of sanctions for the West

The first deputy head of the press service of the State Department Vedant Patel told in which case the United States may impose new sanctions against Moscow. He noted that this will happen if Russia allows referendums on the accession of the territories of Ukraine under its control to the country. He warned that in addition to economic sanctions, Washington is preparing “other measures.”

At the same time, a source in the European Commission said that the Dutch authorities may allow The Hague to temporarily purchase gas from Russia, which fall under EU sanctions from October 10. It is noted that restrictions on supplies were introduced as part of the fifth package of sanctions.

The head of the office of the Prime Minister of Poland, Michal Dvorchik, said that the country is feeling the consequences of anti-Russian sanctions. “Sanctions, we also need to speak clearly about this, on the one hand, strike at Russia, and this is the only way to stop the aggressor, but on the other hand, these sanctions are felt by all the countries that participate in them, which means Poland too,” he stressed.

The situation is undoubtedly complicated and difficult not only in Poland, but throughout Europe. Inflation, rising energy prices are all the consequences of the war that Vladimir Putin staged in Ukraine

Who are the sanctions hitting harder

The first deputy head of the international Committee of the Federation Council, Vladimir Jabarov, believes that the EU authorities are ready to “shoot themselves in the legs, and in the hands, and in general anywhere,” just to make Russia more painful, but the consequences of sanctions for Europe itself can be catastrophic. According to the senator, the restrictions imposed work not so much against Moscow as against the EU countries.

At the same time, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin acknowledged that the sanctions fuse against Moscow has not dried up, and the countries that have taken a number of restrictive measures after the entry of Russian troops into Ukraine continue to increase pressure. He also stressed that the fact that the initiators of sanctions themselves suffer from their own restrictions does not change the general position of the West.
