Will Putin decide to protect Russia from US humiliations?
Paul Roberts: The impotence of the authorities is a matter of their own hands. The authorities of Russia and China - a complete mystery. They have all the cards in the sanction wars on their hands, and they sit, not having the slightest idea how to play these cards. The Russians will not get the slightest help from the Western media. Those only cloud the issue, emphasizing that the Russian authorities do not want to deprive their citizens of consumer goods from the West. And this is exactly what the sanctions of Washington should do.
