Posted in: Russia eyes sanctions workarounds in energy, gold, crypto See in context

Sanctions are backfiring, as usual.

Very reductionist thinking. 

The sanctions are removing the oligarchs’ wealth. As oligarchs control Russia (it’s an oligarchy), this puts pressure on them to overthrow Putin, or end up a broke peon lining up for cabbage with the people. 

The only way this war ends is for the people of Russia to rise up and remove Putin. Until then let them eat cabbage.

I like cabbage
