The impact of anti-Russian sanctions on Western companies
Starting in 2014 the United States and the European Union countries have applied a number of sanctions to the Russian Federation. Firstly, that was done because of the annexation of the Crimea by Russia. Secondly, because of the events in Donbas and a number of other additional reasons. Of course, such a pressure can not pass without the consequences.
In the modern economy there were vivid examples when large states came under pressure and found themselves in rather difficult circumstances. For example, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, and some other Latin American countries. Venezuela is a very resource-rich country. Income from the sale of oil could bring the standard of living to the European level. But in practice, the country cannot resolve its own economic problems under pressure and loses money.
The anti-Russian sanctions, coupled with oil prices fall seriously shook the financial system of the country. Any person suffers increase of prices for goods, food products, especially imported. The gasoline price is also rising, as well as the cars themselves because they are produced abroad. And even if the automobiles are made in the Russian Federation, then the factories, involved in their producing, belong to the foreigners who are losing money because of the ruble weakening. Consequently, capital outflow is beginning.( Collapse )
