What are the effects of #sanctions on the opinions of Russians about the West and the war? There is a naïve pro-sanctions view: Sanctions lead to economic hardship which is then attributed to the war and leads to anti-war sentiment. This is certainly not happening. 1/
There is also a naïve anti-sanctions view: Sanctions lead to economic hardship, which is attributed to the West's hostility and leads to a "rally-round-the-flag" effect and stronger support for Putin. This is also not happening. 2/
From my experience, there are two groups: The "enlightened group" of educated Russians, a minority, and the "loyal group" of Russians, the majority, who rather believe in Putin and the official line on foreign policy. Interestingly, the sanctions effects on both is complex. 3/

#Sanctions: UN humanitarian diplomacy aims to convince the EU to exempt Belarusian fertilizer exports. Lithuania and Poland are against any easing of restrictions on the export of Belarusian potash to not help Lukashenko. The sanctions were applied after⤵️
the Ryanair hijacking in 2021. Lukashenko's facilitation of the Russian war against Ukraine has reduced exports to the West. Belarus currently transports potash from Russia's St Petersburg and Murmansk airports. The potash producer (Belaruskali) is a⤵️
major source of income for the Lukashenko regime. The US shares the concern that sanctions on Belarus could have aggravating effects on food security. Canada has already taken the top spot as a world share of exports, planning to expand production capacity.⤵️

Russia to the bottom
March 12, 2023

From time to time, materials appear in the leading Western media about disagreements between the allies & the Ukrainian authorities, as well as within the allies themselves regarding the definition of Ukrainian victory
and therefore the goals in the war, and accordingly the types, volumes and pace of aid.

However, the observers themselves point out that issues of such complexity as supporting Ukraine in the war against Russia are never without discussion.
In order to speed up these discussions, & to speed up the provision of weapons to Ukraine for the offensive & the liberation of territories (namely, victories are the best motivation for further assistance), the Ukrainian authorities should take fairly simple & logical steps.

Russia to the bottom
Mar 9, 2023

Racist propagandists relish the publication in The Washington Post that, they say, "the USA will need 15 years" to restore its potential - due to the reduction of defense spending and aid to Ukraine, which exceeded $32 billion.
Trying to present this as a problem, the Rashists do not see the unpleasant conclusion: the more the US and its allies help, the more interested they are in the victory of Ukraine.

And the Rashists, on the other hand, are shelling Ukrainian cities,
adding weight to the arguments about providing weapons as soon as possible. To complete the picture, Ukraine must demonstrate in every possible way that it is an outpost of freedom and democracy - and the pressure on Russia will increase.

#Russia has become much more dependent on #China as a result of war and #sanctions. This is about shifting trade volumes, but also the changing character of economic cooperation: It increasingly resembles the classic relationship of a petrostate with a modern economy. 1/
Most of the signature projects of the Russia-China economic partnership since 2014 have failed. Highspeed railway between Moscow and Kazan? Cancelled. The Russian-Chinese long-range airliner CR929? Practically dead. Russian 5G networks with Huawei technology? Nowhere in sight. 2/
What is thriving is Russian exports of oil, coal and gas, and Russian import of finished machinery, finished vehicles and finished electronics. This is in line with the "simplification" of Russia's economy that takes place gradually due to technological isolation. 3/

@ArnaudDubien @EQuidet
II. Les sanctions décidées par l’UE avaient pour but de paralyser ou « d’effondrer » l’économie de la #Russie (poke @BrunoLeMaire) en la privant des ressources financières des exports et en la coupant de ses imports. Voyons un peu le résultat général
III. La balance des paiements est donc largement positive. Mais, ont voit qu’elle se resserre au 4ème T de 2022. Regardons alors le mouvement des importations. La chute est nette au 1er T de 2022, mais la récupération se manifeste rapidement.

How to protect #China from #Russia-like sanctions?

This question continues to be debated by Chinese analysts.

🔹About the author: Ye Yan (叶研) is currently a senior economist at the international R&D arm of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) and an adjunct professor at China’s Southwest University of Political Science & Law.
🔹Some background: China was taken aback by the scale of Western sanctions on Russia following the outbreak of the #UkraineWar. Government officials and experts have since been assessing how best to protect their country from such a doomsday scenario.…
