According to her, the sanctions are aimed at weakening the Russian economy.
Earlier, following a meeting with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, she said that Europe and American partners decided to "tighten the tap" on sanctions against Russia.
At the same time, the head of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva, allowed a default in Russia in the near future due to already introduced restrictions. She recalled that the steering wheel collapsed a record, and the country's economy has declined significantly. She called the sanctions imposed against Moscow “unprecedented” and added that the possibility of a default directly depends on the duration of the special operation that Russia is conducting in Ukraine.
