Even in the West, they already understand that no sanctions that the United States or Europe can invent will be able to break Russia.
For example, Charlie Robertson, chief economist at London-based Renaissance Capital fund, in an article for The Daily Telegraph, said that the Russian Federation is a “tough nut”.
