Bundestag ex-deputy: West beginning to understand that pernicious effect of sanctions policy cannot be hidden

Residents of Western countries are beginning to express their dissatisfaction with the sanctions policy that their leaders are conducting against the Russian Federation, as they feel the blow of anti-Russian restrictions – as noted by Waldemar Herdt, deputy of the Bundestag of the 19th convocation, during his talk with Belarus 1 TV channel


The ex-deputy of the Bundestag noted that if earlier Western leaders managed to hide the discontent of their citizens, now it is impossible.

“People and states [in the West] are beginning to understand that the perniciousness of the sanctions policy cannot be hidden. It affected not only the states as a whole but also each individual person. The discontent that is growing within society [in Western countries] cannot be hidden. Now a new strategy is needed, it is necessary to urgently try to find some ways to get out of the sanctions, so that the anger that erupts does not swept away this corrupt elite that now leads the European Union,” Waldemar Herdt said.

Earlier, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that the European Union did not have enough courage to recognise the reverse effect of the sanctions policy, and Hungary, in turn, is not able to influence the position of larger countries on this issue, so the introduction of anti-Russian sanctions will continue.
