Czech diplomat Jaromir Novotny explained why West wants to weaken trade with Russia.
According to the diplomat, West turns his nose up from the Russian Federation not only because of political disagreements. The European Alliance understands a certain dependence by economic ties with Russia and China.
The expert stressed that European countries believe that China is crushing trading partners in order to subsequently make vassals of the European Union.
The situation with Russia is also difficult, as if Moscow and Beijing are stepping up cooperation. They sign agreements on the supply of oil and gas. Therefore, Russia, which portrays the PRC as a partner, is acquiring a similar reputation.
