Political scientist Yuri Svetov commented in an interview with RT on the proposal of US congressmen Jimmy Panetta and Tom Rice to expand the list of Russian goods prohibited from being imported into the United States.
According to him, the United States expected that Russia, after the imposition of sanctions, “will get scared and cancel everything.”
“But the sanctions did not work. Six packages have been entered, the seventh is being prepared. This looks rather ridiculous. They cannot stop, because stopping means admitting that sanctions affect not only Russia, but also their economy, ”the political scientist explained.
He added that Biden’s statement about the official introduction of the concept of “Putin’s price increase” indicates the opposite effect of sanctions.
The political scientist clarified that US residents blame the administration of the incumbent president for rising gasoline prices and rising inflation.
“Apparently, before the November elections, he has only one thing left: this kind of demagogy, loud statements to regain the falling confidence of voters. Will the Americans believe it? I don’t know, it’s their choice,” Svetov concluded.
Earlier, the United States proposed to expand the embargo on goods from Russia.
Politicians believe that in this way they can cut “as many economic ties” with Moscow as possible in order to weaken the Russian economy.
