It is funny you say that, because even you admit the chances of an economy collapse for Russia is non existent...
Nope i never said that.. is your flawed logic ,that made you say absurdity all the time...
The statement i made about IRAN and Venezuela collapsing ,was unfinished.. it was in short term
the way only IRAN and Venezuela can collapse.. But Russia economy will collapse too.. If US keep its several
economic warfare attacks on Russia long term , and keep creating conflicts in countries ,so that Russia military
is forced to Interfere.. less say , a remake of the Syrian war in Serbia ,in Armenia ,Venezuela.. now US is pushing for war against mexico.
. and war against Moldova in this last one Russia will have blocked the airspace...
Then it will drag completely Russia economy to a full stop ,if US push Russia ,to come in their defense as they did to Syria. . According to Russian Defense minister.. the Syrian war alone cost them.. $300 to $400 million a year.. in $USD. This don't include the help Russia give in humanitarian aid for free .. that Russia
give free food and free weapons.. to feed millions in Syria ,since Damascus its economy is destroyed.. So the Syrian conflict alone, wiped about 400 millions x 5 years + free Food and Free weapons.. + plane losses , something near $3 to $4 billions $USD dollars.. This is not a small amount of money. and if you combine this with the losses with Ukraine conflict.. which are bigger.. then between Syria and ukraine alone.. the losses of Russia on its economy ,have to be in the $50 billions. not counting war on Oil prices ,that sink Russia economy GDP from 2-3% .So US cold war , economic sabotage on Russia until now had to cost Russia half a trillion $dollar on its economy. they burned 100billion alone ,trying to stabilize the Ruble.. when sanctions began..
All that Americans needs to do to sink Russia economy ,beyond repair is keep pressure ,starting new conflicts.. in the places mentioned above and you will see Putin strategy "of surviving".. Russia economy ,to collapse.. Because Putin strategy can't last forever.. while US can forever destabilize nations in the world..that are important for Russia interest. not a problem.. Russia can't abandon Serbia or Armenia if US start similar wars there.. so reducing the budget and spending of Russia ,can't hold forever.. there will be a time ,that no more
reduction can be done..
In short Putin's strategy to counter the west.. is terrible.. A total passive policy of allowing US to hit them
and they don't fight back.. Why? because Putin is an idiot ..and don't know that all he needs to do ,to fight
back is counter US business directly with superior ones.. And take the example of China.. which is the only
country in the world ,since world war 2.. that have been able to sanction and hit hard American economy and cause recession in their economy.
To say that American sanctions dont work.. can only be said if you are an an ignorant.. is even insulting.
US is a very powerful influential nation... their real power most biggest power is their Business influence.
Something they get ,thanks to their Business leadership.. (that Russia lacks.). if Nations are forced to choose between America or Russia.. for next 100 years to trade. .and could only pick one.. 99% of the world hands down will pick US over Russia.. no contest.. and only rejected nations in the world , like IRAN ,Cuba and venezuela will pick Russia. China might even jump too.. to US side ,and stay neutral with Russia.
and this is the major flaw in Putin development of Russia.. that
is a passive development ,it doesn't counter US influence ,business leadership in the world.. and this is why
they are scared of CHina major technological advance.. because is now damaging US top influential business
that they used ,as a weapon ,to lure nations towards their orbit.. From US Silicon Valley companies ,to US entertainment industry , this are markets Russia can't touch.. and that they use to pull nations towards the
western orbit. This is why Russia have so little influence in Latin America.. and majority of nations there prefers to follow US over Russia. Only Rejected socialist nations like Cuba ,Venezuela or Nicaragua follows Russia.
and this should be an embarrassment for Putin ,if he had any decency and understood how bad his policies are..
of total attachment to the past.. and an economy focused in military ,commodities and sports Tourism.
