Polish PM admitted sanctions have little effect on Russia

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki agreed with the statement that the sanctions imposed against Russia are not having the desired effect, RIA Novosti reports


In an interview with Interia, he explained, “What catches the eye: Russia this year and next will develop faster than Germany. And this despite the sanctions. Firstly, unfortunately, Russia has learned to bypass them. Secondly, the prices of raw materials have skyrocketed. The Russian budget make more money even on fewer sales.”

Since the end of February 2022, the EU has already introduced nine packages of sanctions against Russia, which include financial, trade and individual sanctions. Now the personal sanctions of the European Union against Russia apply to 1,386 individuals and 171 organisations.
