According to him, the number and depth of the sanctions show that all this was planned a long time ago and that this is, in fact, “a real economic war from which the Americans benefit.”
Russia is not to blame for the unprecedented economic and financial crisis, for which the European Union and the United States are trying to blame Moscow, Pierre de Gaulle stressed. He pointed out that the Russians are simply fighting back, because 11,000 sanctions have been issued against them, plus the ninth package. “It is quite legal and natural that the Russians are defending themselves,” de Gaulle is convinced.
Commenting on the freezing of Russian assets, Pierre de Gaulle said that no other nation since the persecution of the Jews during World War II has experienced such looting as the Russian people today.
De Gaulle is convinced that maintaining good relations with Russia is Europe’s duty in the name of maintaining stability in the world.
