Sanctions are Like Declarations of War

Sanctions are Like Declarations of War. – Sanctions imposed by Western nations for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have been compared to “a declaration of war” by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“But thank God it has not come to that,” he added.

Any effort to enforce a no-fly zone over Ukraine would be viewed as participation in the military conflict, according to Mr. Putin.

He also dismissed concerns that he will declare martial law or declare a state of emergency in Russia.

Mr. Putin made the comments to a group of female flight attendants at an Aeroflot training facility in Moscow.

The West has slapped a slew of penalties on Russia since the invasion began 10 days ago. This is including the freezing of Mr Putin’s overseas assets. Also, the withdrawal of a number of Russian institutions from the Swift international payments system.

In addition, numerous global corporations have stopped doing business in Russia. Zara, Paypal, and Samsung were among the latest major businesses to halt operations in the country on Saturday.

The rouble has already fallen in value as a result of the economic measures, forcing the Russian central bank to double interest rates.

Mr. Putin attempted to explain the conflict in Ukraine in his most recent remarks. He repeated his claim that he was attempting to preserve Russian-speaking minorities in the nation. This is by “demilitarizing and de-Nazifying” the country.

In response to Western defense analysts’ claims that Russia’s military campaign is failing to meet expectations. Putin said: “All of the duties will be completed by our army. That is something I have no doubt about. Everything is progressing according to schedule.”

Despite claims to the contrary, he stressed that only professional soldiers were involved in the fighting and that no conscripts were participating.

No-Fly Zone

Efforts to enforce a no-fly zone in Ukraine would be regarded as a step towards a military confrontation by Russia. Those responsible would be handled as enemy fighters, according to the Russian leader.

“The current leadership needs to understand that if they continue doing what they are doing, they risk the future of Ukrainian statehood,” he added.
