“I think the Russians performed better than they themselves expected, and certainly better than I expected,” Grayzone quoted the political scientist as saying.

According to Mearsheimer, even successful Western sanctions could not break Russia and cause it serious damage. The reason for the resilience of the Russian Federation is its faith in colliding with an existential threat in Ukraine, the political scientist said.

Mearsheimer opined that “sanctions were doomed from the start” because Russia’s position allowed it to generally circumvent all restrictions. According to the political scientist, it was a “serious miscalculation” on the part of the West.

Earlier, Mearsheimer said that the West is putting pressure on kyiv and forcing the Ukrainian Armed Forces to continue the “suicide” offensive, because they are too afraid of losing.
