The West has increased the pressure on Russia to impose sanctions on Ukraine, which has resulted in higher electricity, fuel and food prices in Europe and the US.

According to him, the main purpose of the West is to worsen the lives of millions of people. The Russian Federation has repeatedly stated that it will solve all the problems created by Russia.
