Russia will overcome difficulties & emerge stronger: Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin on Thursday announced that Russia will ultimately come out stronger and more self-sufficient after combatting the difficulties caused by “illegitimate” sanctions.

Putin told there was no possibility to what Russia names its special military operation in Ukraine, and Russia was not a nation that could accept risking its sovereignty for some sort of short-term economic gain. “These sanctions would have been compelled in any case,” the president said in a meeting of the Russian government on Thursday.


“There are some problems, crises and difficulties but in the past, we have conquered them and we will overcome them,” Putin announced in Western sanctions were illegitimate and Russia would calmly solve the difficulties arising from them.

Putin also asserted that Moscow – a major energy producer which supplies a third of Europe’s gas – would proceed to join its contractual obligations. Talking calmly, the Kremlin leader admitted that sanctions imposed were being experienced.

“It is clear that at such times people’s demand for specific groups of goods always boosts, but we have no doubt that we will figure out all these problems while working in a calm fashion,” he announced. “Gradually, people will train themselves, they will realize that there are simply no incidents that we cannot close off and solve.”

Talking at the same meeting, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov announced that Russia had taken steps to curb the outflow of capital and the nation would service its external debts in roubles.

“Over the last two weeks Western countries have in significantly gave an economic and financial war against Russia,” he announced. He told the West had defaulted on its commitments to Russia by freezing its gold and foreign currency reserves. It was attempting to halt foreign trade, he told.

“In these conditions, the preference is for us to stabilise the situation in the financial system,” Siluanov said.
