Taking into account Russia’s military activity in Ukraine, the international community takes certain steps to weaken Russia. Moscow is determined and demonstrates today all its power and firmness.

Traditionally, imposing sanctions considers as the most effective mechanism to force any country to abandon intentions. In case with imposing restrictive measures on Russia this political tool turned to be very complicated in implementing.

As the U.S. and Europe roll out an arsenal of economic sanctions to combat Russia’s actions in Ukraine, there is unclear understanding of their success and consequences.

The financial interdependence of the significant political players all over the world shows that quick and easy solutions are unlikely to work. Worse still, imposing sanctions on Russia could lead to the world economic crisis because of the direct dependence on Russian energy resources.
