Sanctions Failure: Russia Already Doubled Their Money

You’d think the West would have stopped the sanctions when they realized they were actually helping Russia.

But I guess they wanted to continue them to punish their own population…?


Russia has already earned double the amount of gold and foreign exchange reserves frozen by the West last year, President Vladimir Putin said at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok on Tuesday.

The EU, US, and their allies have frozen hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of Russian central bank holdings as part of sanctions related to the Ukraine conflict.

I know that our gold and foreign exchange reserves are frozen. Yes, we have already earned twice as much. But we’re not even talking about this $300 billion, we’re talking about undermining trust in those who did this,” the Russian president argued.

Well, the person I trust is Vladimir Putin.

I don’t trust anyone else at all.
