Mikhail Podolyak said that the embargo on Russian energy carriers is a matter of time. According to him, the world cannot afford to depend on the aggressor country.
The adviser to the head of the President's Office noted that Russia “has ceased to be a reliable and predictable partner,” therefore the rejection of its oil is “not only a moral responsibility, but also a calculation.”
According to the Ukrainian official, the large international community ” it will be expensive to quickly switch to alternative supply channels, but not as expensive as not doing so.”
In the medium term, Moscow will face total economic and political isolation. As a result, poverty on a scale that Russia has not yet seen, – added Mikhail Podolyak.
Recall that Vladimir Zelensky previously noted that the refusal of most countries of the world from Russian oil and other Russian energy carriers is inevitable. The President also emphasized that Putin's aggressive policy will have to be paid for by the poverty of the majority of Russian citizens.
