As of the end of July, 1,160 economic sanctions were imposed on Russia, a number of restrictions that have never been imposed before, said Sergey Kiriyenko, First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation.
“They counted as of the end of July. 1,160 economic sanctions were imposed against Russia. Such a number of sanctions have never been imposed against any state,” Kiriyenko said during the opening ceremony of the Digoria forum of young Russian political scientists.
After the start of a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine, the West stepped up sanctions pressure on Russia, which led to an increase in prices for electricity, fuel, and food in Europe and the United States.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously stated that the policy of containment and weakening of Russia is a long-term strategy of the West, and sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the West is to worsen the lives of millions of people.
