In the wake of inevitable sanctions from the West for its attack on Ukraine, it is worth noting that Russia’s newfound ally against Europe and the US, China, does not seem to be offering much economic comfort, as the ruble has crashed against the yuan just as it predictably has against the dollar and the euro.
Can Russia’s economy hold up without Chinese assistance? Can China actually do much to replace the European trade that is now ruptured?
Has Putin miscalculated the economic aspects of his attack on Ukraine?
This of course could make the situation more dangerous. A wounded animal is more dangerous than a healthy one. I wish our Country and NATO would stand down and everyone take a breath before this become WWIII with no winners. I am old enough to remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. You cannot install troops and missiles in another Superpower’s (Militarily at least) Backyard without repercussions, in this case deadly ones. As a feminist peace and civil rights activists who has marched and organized in every anti-war effort since Vietnam, I am begging the egotistical, macho males who lead the world to please, please not lead us all to perdition! This madness MUST END before it is too late! Have these men learned nothing?😖😩
