The current Western policy of containment aims to arrest Russia’s technological progress, in the first place.
“I think this policy will produce an adverse effect,” Rogozin said. “No one will ever be able to push our country into real isolation, first and foremost considering its capability for industrial and technological cooperation with other countries.”
He voiced the confidence that a certain feature of the Russian national character would play against the West. “When someone forbids us to do something, we begin to yearn for doing precisely the thing that has been forbidden,” he said jokingly.
“On the contrary, if we were told, well guys, go on with developing your technologies, then we’d probably feel like lazing away but as for now I can tell you for sure we expect a technological breakthrough, just because it has been forbidden to us,” Rogozin said.
