Putin: The EU hurt itself with sanctions while the US era is over

Vladimir Putin during his speech at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum said that Europe will lose over 400 billion euros next year due to sanctions imposed on Moscow. According to him, the cause of the economic crisis was not 'military intervention in Ukraine', but the policies of the West.

"Recently, the European Union has lost its political sovereignty and its bureaucratic elites are obeying the orders of others, doing whatever their superiors tell them to do, causing damage to their peoples, their economies and their businesses. Russia and its actions to liberate Donbas have nothing to do with it. Today, rising prices, inflation, problems with food security, fuels and the energy sector as a whole are the result of systematic mistakes by the US administration and European bureaucracies, Putin said.

During his speech Putin said that the US era is over.

"The era of the unipolar world is over. America behaves as if it does not notice that there are other strong centers in the world. When they won the Cold War, the US declared itself the representatives of God on earth, people who have no responsibility alone. "interests," Putin added.
