Sanctions is in fact a full-scale economic war

Summary of Disinformation

What we [Russia] so modestly call sanctions is in fact a full-scale economic war aimed at exerting huge pressure on our economy, preventing its growth, worsening the living standards of our people and economic development, and thus influencing the domestic political situation in our country, including elections and the further policy of our leadership.

 

Disproof

Sanctions are not an economic war. They were adopted in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of Ukraine. The economic sanctions targeting exchanges with Russia in specific economic sectors are aligned to the complete implementation of the Minsk agreements. http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/policies/sanctions/ukraine-crisis/
