Russia was abandoned more than ever

Russia was abandoned more than ever

Russia, which was hit by new sanctions and suspended from the UN Human Rights Council yesterday, is more isolated than ever. However, experts believe that more severe punishments will be needed to prevent it.

“Symbolically, it’s powerful and sends a clear message that Russia is, in a sense, a rogue state, but that does not change anything about the situation in Ukraine,” explains Daniel Beland, director of the McGill Institute for Research in Canada.

The UN General Assembly yesterday approved Russia to launch an attack on Ukraine. Of the 193 members, 93 voted in favor of its suspension and 24 against.

This is the second time in the history of the United Nations that such a decision has been taken. In 2011, Libya was suspended for “brutal and legitimate human rights violations.”

“It is very rare for us to take such a step and to win by voting in favor sends a very clear message of growing isolation from Russia,” Mr Beland added.

Punish with hydrocarbon

To destabilize the Russian economy and prevent Vladimir Putin, the US and Europe yesterday decided to impose new sanctions on Russia, particularly the coal embargo.

Twenty-seven delegates have also decided to close access to European ports for Russian ships. For its part, the European Parliament wants to go further and a majority voted yesterday for a complete ban on Russian oil and gas. European foreign ministers are also due to discuss the issue on Monday.

Arthur Silva, professor of economics at Laval University, says it’s precisely the total barrier to hydrocarbons that could change the course of the war.

“Since the beginning of the conflict, the West has bought about $ 30 billion worth of petroleum products from Russia and provided nearly $ 1 billion in military support to Ukraine. Sylv apologized.

Arm the invaded country

Like him, Charles-Philippe David, founder of the Raல்l-Tundrand chair, believes that sanctions will hurt the Russian economy even further, “but not enough to bend Putin.”

Despite the Russian military admitting heavy casualties yesterday, Ukraine needs to continue to supply weapons.

“We must provide them with military equipment and, above all, the Ukrainians with what they ask for,” he said. David explains.
