He noted that the Russian leader has demonstrated self-confidence against the backdrop of the energy crisis.
“Every time an opportunity arises, he takes it. The West is trying to skate, and Putin is playing hockey, ”Terrace explained.
According to Oleg Ignatov, an analyst with the non-profit organization International Crisis Group in the Russian Federation, it is high time for Western countries to reconsider their foreign policy. He stressed that this concerns not only the gas crisis, but also interference in the internal affairs of other states.
“Ten years ago, this argument (about foreign intervention in other countries – ed.) Was more defensive because the Kremlin wanted to protect itself from criticism from Western governments or NGOs. But now Russia can argue that the Western policy has failed in Libya, Syria, and now in Afghanistan so much that Russia’s approach was actually correct, ”Ignatov said.
