The US understands that sanctions against Russia do not work

Summary of Disinformation

The United States is fed up with imposing sanctions on Russia. Any new sanctions will hit the economy of the United States more than the Russian economy. Sanctions do not work. The United States sees this and understands it.


Recurring disinformation concerning sanctions against Russia not being effective.

The false narrative about sanctions is often backed by false statistics, contrary to the actual evidence. According to Russian site RBK, the alleged economic growth of two percent does not stand up to scrutiny. In 2018, inflation rate went up and the rouble depreciated 20% against the dollar.

Sanctions imposed on Russia after the Crimea annexation and Russian meddling in the US elections sapped Russian economical growth.
