MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Western sanction have had a good psychological effect on Russians, especially on those liberal-minded, the head of the Kremlin administration Sergey Ivanov said in an interview with the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily on Thursday.
“On the one side, the sanctions have done certain harm and I openly admit it,” Ivanov said. “And on the other, they — strange as it may seem — have had a positive psychological effect on the public opinion.”
“Many representatives of the so-called liberal community told me, ‘Listen, at last we got it that in spite of efforts we had undertaken to become Europeans and in spite of all our actions, we have been, so to speak, rubbed out in a very unfair way’,” Ivanov said.
