Russia has said it is impossible to isolate Kremlin considering that it is a huge economy, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
Western powers imposed sanctions on Russia following the invasion of Ukraine on 24 February this year.
The Washington Post, in April, reported that Russia had already been isolated as “governments are going so far as to subvert long-standing policies and traditions to pour weapons and other equipment into Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Peskov says the isolation of Russia, even as far as technology goes, is impossible. Said Peskov:
No one is talking about isolation. It is impossible to isolate Russia, despite the fact that countries unfriendly, or rather hostile to us, are trying to isolate us economically, politically, and in the sphere of trade. They cannot and will not succeed, because in today’s world it is impossible to isolate a country, especially such a huge country like Russia.
The world is reeling from the effects of the war between Russia and Ukraine which interrupted international trade.
Fuel prices went up following the war as it became difficult for Russia to export oil to other countries and continents.
Some NATO members even opposed sanctions on Russia saying they will also be negatively affected as they depend on Russia for oil and grain.
