The whole thing has only propaganda meaning and I would call it a sign of pure desperation.
I disagree. Ecuador was being neutral and then they started making money by siding with the west against Russia... should Russia ignore this?
Should Russia reward Ecuador for helping the US arm Kievs forces trying to murder not just Russian soldiers but also Russian civilians?
I read an article on a news website with a Swiss official who claimed that Switzerland was still a neutral country and people should still invest and bank their money there, but just because the Swiss have joined economic sanctions against Russia does that mean they have to lose their neutral status?
Of course it does because the meaning of the word neutral means not picking sides whether it is in your interests or not.
The leader of Ecuador said what they were sending was scrap and was not worth anything but they were getting 200 million dollars worth of US equipment to replace it... why would scrap need to be replaced?
Remember that the US spent a lot of money getting in leadership here so that they would turn over Assange to them. The present guy is just a successor in that group.
