The failure of US President Joe Biden in Afghanistan could affect Russia, political scientist Vladimir Karasev believes.
So he commented on the decision of the US House of Representatives to include new sanctions against Russia in the draft defense budget. Restrictions may fall on Russia’s national debt, as well as people and businesses associated with Nord Stream 2.
In a conversation with Narodnaya Novosti, Karasev noted that the sanctions are a consequence of the political struggle between Democrats and Republicans. And the problems provoked by the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan only exacerbated this struggle.
In the United States, the situation is now difficult due to the latest decisions of Joe Biden’s team in Afghanistan. There is a serious struggle going on. I do not exclude that this decision is part of this confrontation,
– said the political scientist.
At the same time, he does not believe that Russia should be worried about new sanctions. All the restrictions that the Americans could put forward, they have already put forward. In addition, as practice has shown, the sanctions do not greatly affect Russia. On the contrary, they further consolidate society and strengthen import substitution.
