"Speaking yesterday at Russia's largest investment conference, Russian president Putin made a compelling case that Russia's economy has not only not been seriously affected by sanctions, but that in fact, it stands to benefit from them. "
While European economies are slowly being strangled to death by keeping the EURO exchange rate artificially too high thus destroying their international competitiveness Russia makes the right decision to let Ruble rate compensate for external pressures. The usury banking cabal is destroying the European economy on purpose but cannot control the Ruble rate. Thus the only remaining option for the usury cabal is military.
War is business!
