The president emphasized the serious inflation that Europe is going through, the “greatest” in the last 40 years.
Nicolás Maduro, President of Venezuela, pointed out that the sanctions imposed by the West on Russia, in response to the special military operation in Ukraine, were intended to harm the Russian economy, but turned out to have adverse effects on European countries and the US
“As of this armed conflict in Ukraine, a regrouping of forces begins that is already beginning to be seen. The United States believed that it could crush Russia with its economic sanctions and the opposite has happened,” the president emphasized. .
According to the head of the Executive during an interview on the International Dialogue program, “the threats against Russia became the biggest inflation they have had in the last 40 years”.
“With the decisions that the European Union has irrationally taken against Russian oil and gas”, crude oil could reach 150 dollars per barrel, predicted the head of state.
Maduro’s comments come a day after the Council of the The European Union will announce that it officially adopts the sixth package of “economic and individual” sanctions against the Eurasian country, with which nearly 90% of oil imports from Russia to the EU will be cut off by the end of the year.
