“We, as a society, need to consider what we are able to give up for the greater good, which is stopping Russia. This is now crucial” – said Dr. Małgorzata Bonikowska, President of the Centre for International Relations, in an interview with BiznesAlert.pl. [11.04.2022]
Currently, the main goal of the West in imposing restrictions on Russia is to cut it off from budget revenues so that it cannot wage war. Russia is making huge profits from the sale of hydrocarbons, and as long as these profits continue to flow, the Kremlin will have the money to finance this aggression. The West is now looking for appropriate methods to reduce these sources of income, because over the past two decades it has become one of Russia’s main customers for energy resources – said dr. Bonikowska.
