Venezuela rejects Western sanctions against Russia

Moscow, Jun 17 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez said today that anti-Russian sanctions create difficulties for the very countries that initiated them in one of the sessions of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (Spief).

Since February 24, every sanction is a boomerang sanction against the US people, against the peoples of Europe, said the high official of the South American nation.

“A giant like Russia, an energy giant, one of the largest oil producers in the world, one of the largest gas producers in the world, cannot be erased from the face of the earth,” she said.

According to Rodriguez, as much as there is the European plan to replace two-thirds of Russia’s gas until 2027, Moscow has other markets to sell to. “But who is going to run out of supplies? That’s why I call sanctions a boomerang,” he commented.

In her opinion, Western countries are creating difficulties for themselves, while the Russian economy is ready to consolidate production processes and strengthen its national currency, TASS news agency reported.

“At first the ruble suffered, but now the ruble is absolutely strengthened by the policies that have been implemented,” he said.

This Friday, the Venezuelan Vice-President met in St. Petersburg with the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, who conveyed the greetings of the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, to his counterpart, Nicolas Maduro.

Lavrov emphasized the special symbolic significance for Russia of the fact that Carlos Faría, who was for a long time the country’s ambassador in Moscow, was appointed Venezuela’s foreign minister.

The Venezuelan high official underlined the need to tighten channels between Caracas and Moscow in order to get rid of the dollar hegemony.

In this sense, she pointed out that the world economy is changing, while the dollar dictatorship is disappearing.
