The sanctions helped Russian society attain a degree of consolidation that no kind of propaganda would be able to create, he said.
“The sanctions presuppose a mechanism that’s very difficult to put in place and no less difficult to dismantle,” Yakunin said. “Even if an announcement is made today that the sanctions against Russia have been lifted - and that’s a thing that won’t happen - the whole situation including the stabilization of financial markets will continue for another twelve months as a minimum.”“In 2014, the global oligarchate made Russia the target of its efforts to ensure stability of the global dominance system and, in the first place, the depleting world resources,” Yakunin said. “It’s the third time over a hundred years that Russia comes face to face with a danger of a momentary loss of its sovereignty.”
“Soft desovereignization along the European model flopped in the Russian Federation and that’s why the next phase of the struggle for establishing a full totalitarian control over the global politics and economy will see attacks on China, over the BRICS project that’s still in formation, and over the developing Shanghai Cooperation Organization, membership of which is being eyed by India and Pakistan.”
“In other words, they are viewing Russia’s public sovereignty in their sights now,” Yakunin said.
