FT columnist Luce: West cannot isolate Russia despite crisis in Ukraine

MOSCOW, June 25 – RIA Novosti. Western efforts to isolate Russia fail because they pay no attention to the interests of the rest of the world community. says In an article by the British Financial Times columnist Edward Luce.

The author of the article titled “The West cannot isolate Russia” emphasizes that Russia’s special military operation against Ukraine “increases the demand for a multipolar world”. Most of the non-Western world “seeks strategic autonomy,” he said.

“We can’t blame countries like India and Brazil for buying Russian oil at a discount,” Luce writes.

The Observer notes that India and China are helping to create alternative payment systems and routes for transporting Russian goods and thwarting attempts by Western countries to “exclude Russia from the multilateral system.”

“If we want other countries to follow us against Russia, we have to be careful what they want. Constantly repeating to ourselves that we are in a war against darkness where there is no light, no golden meaning, this is not a diplomatic strategy,” Luce thinks.

Western countries imposed sanctions on Moscow after the start of a special operation to liberate Donbass. The disruption of supply chains has caused economic problems in the Americas and Europe, which are facing an unprecedented rise in fuel and food prices.

In the United States, for example, inflation peaked at 8.6 percent in May, the highest level since December 1981, and gasoline prices rose above $5 per gallon for the first time in history on June 10.

Vladimir Putin said that the policy of controlling and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy for Western countries and that the sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. In his speech at SPIEF, the Russian leader noted that oil and gas prices have increased due to the activities of the USA.
