Ukrainian war, the threat from Russia: “The great global storm is starting”

Russia continues to threaten the West by evoking the beginning of a “great global storm” due to the sanctions imposed for the war in Ukraine. For Zelensky “Moscow wants to destroy the normal life of every European”.

Russia continues to threaten the West and does so by evoking the beginning of a “great global storm” unleashed by the sanctions imposed on Moscow for the war in Ukraine. According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov – reports Tass – Russia “will be able to preserve macrostability in the midst of this storm “.

“Global processes are currently having unfavorable impacts. It seems that a great global storm is starting,” Peskov told Tass. “There are objective reasons for this, but there are subjective causes of this initial storm, which stem from decisions. and absolutely illogical and even absurd actions by the governments of the United States, Europe, the European Union and individual European countries ”, he continued.

Meanwhile, according to what Tass always reports, Putin’s deputy prime minister with delegation for energy Alexander Novak argued that the blockade of Nord Stream is due solely to European sanctions which prevented adequate reparations by violating contracts and did not rule out new increases in the price of gas in Europe which could reach “record levels” for consumers.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has also returned to talk about the energy blackmail that Putin has been wielding as a strategic weapon since the beginning of the conflict. “These days – said Zelensky – Russia is trying to increase the energy pressure on Europe even more: the pumping of gas through the Nord Stream is completely interrupted. Why are they doing it? Because – according to the Ukrainian president – Moscow he wants to destroy the normal life of every European, in all the countries of our continent. He wants to weaken and intimidate the whole of Europe, every state “.

For Zelensky there are two answers to be given: “The first is our unity, unity in defense against a terrorist state; the second is the strengthening of pressure on Russia, that is, the strengthening of all levels of sanctions and the limitation of Russian oil and gas revenues. The more attacks we all launch together, the less attacks these terrorists will be able to carry out ”. Today Zelensky spoke with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen urging the EU to move forward with sanctions.
