Pushkov explained why the West cannot refuse sanctions against the Russian Federation


The head of the Federation Council Committee on Information Policy, Alexei Pushkov, explained why Western countries cannot abandon anti-Russian sanctions. Their cancellation would mean recognition of the reunification of Russia with Crimea, as well as a refusal to support Kiev. However, the West cannot do this, since too many resources have already been invested in the confrontation with Russia.

The current situation in international relations does not suit either the US and the EU, which cannot come to terms with the independent Russian policy and its role in the world, or Russia, since restrictive measures affect the economy, Pushkov wrote in his Telegram channel… At the same time, the politician notes, the contradictions between the collective West and Moscow have already “spread to basic values ​​and acquire a civilizational character.”

Pushkov compared this state of affairs with the Gordian knot, which alone cannot be cut with a clever move. In today’s Western world, there are no figures capable of “reconsidering the established but dead-end paradigm,” the senator concluded.
