Russian President Vladimir Putin at the plenary session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum commented on the failure of the “economic blitzkrieg” against the Russian Federation with the words from the letter of Mark Twain, in which the writer denied information about his death in 1897: “The rumors about my death are greatly exaggerated.”
According to the President, it is clear that those who tried to “implement such a blitzkrieg” against the Russian economy failed to do so.
“As Mark Twain said: “The rumors about my death are greatly exaggerated,” Putin said.
In April, Putin already stated that the policy of “economic blitzkrieg” implemented with the help of anti-Russian sanctions had failed, and the consequences of this failure were already felt in the West. We are talking about the growth of inflation and unemployment, the deterioration of economic dynamics in the United States and European countries, the decline in the standard of living of Europeans and the devaluation of their savings.
