Until now Russian retaliation against Western sanctions has been largely symbolic, culminating with this week’s Holy Grail gas deal with China, 10 years in the making, which would not have happened on such a truncated timeframe had it not been for western prodding. However, now Russia may be getting ready for actionable retaliation against the west. RIA reports that Russia has prepared a “confidential document” with measures in response to Western sanctions, citing Kremlin advisor Andrew Belousov.
“I can say that, while it is not a strategy, we do have a tactic. It is in the form of a document which for understandable reasons is confidential. But it clearly lists the Russian sanctions: focusing on individuals, companies, sectors, whether they are comprehensive and systemic, and if they impact the banking system” Belousov was cited as telling TV channel Rossia 24.
According to him, there is a prescribed action at each of the listed levels. “So if any further action is taken against Russia, I can say that we know precisely how to react.”
