Russia not worried about sanctions according to Russian ambassador

| February 15, 2022

The Russian ambassador to Sweden informed one of their newspapers that Russia was not concerned regarding additional sanctions that could be imposed on them. He further explained that since they had been dealing with sanctions for years, they have learned to be self-sufficient.

From the Daily Wire:

Responding to the idea that the West and the Biden administration might impose sanctions on Russia if they invade Ukraine, Russia’s ambassador to Sweden said over the weekend that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government “don’t give a s*** about all their sanctions.”

Viktor Tatarintsev boasted to Sweden’s Aftonbladet newspaper, “We are more self-sufficient and have been able to increase our exports. We have no Italian or Swiss cheeses, but we’ve learned to make just as good Russian cheeses using Italian and Swiss recipes.” He added, “Excuse my language, but we don’t give a s*** about all their sanctions. We have already had so many sanctions and in that sense they’ve had a positive effect on our economy and agriculture. New sanctions are nothing positive but not as bad as the West makes it sound,” The Daily Mail reported.

The Biden administration has threatened to impose sanctions on Russia if it invades Ukraine; last week, Daleep Singh, the deputy national security adviser for international economics for the Biden administration, told NPR, “We’ve said if Russia sends a troop or tank across the border, we’re prepared to impose the most severe sanctions ever levied against Russia, and so are our allies and partners.”

On Sunday, Great Britain’s defense secretary, Ben Wallace, told the Sunday Times an invasion of Ukraine by Russia was “highly likely,” adding, “It may be that he [Putin] just switches off his tanks and we all go home but there is a whiff of Munich in the air from some in the West.”

Its was the cutting off all Vlads word wide banking that got him last time.


You mean to tell me that all this time when the U.S. talks big about sanctions all we were doing was getting someone else to stop sending them…. cheese?

Sanctions? Pfffft. Honey badger don’t care.

Ooh, “sanctions”– my reaction at 9 years old when Carter threatened the Iranians with that for seizing our embassy. (About the same.)


Russia knows with Ol’ Joe, that sanctions, unlike Bidenflation, are transitory. Pallets of cash will be forthcoming.


I like the Bidenflation. Going to start using that one.

Sanctions do not sanction Mother Russia.
Mother Russia sanctions the sanctions.


The meme uptop says it all. Vlad don’t give a gnats azz about any sticking sanctions. We cut off his cheese, he cuts off Western Europe’s gas. Still think he’s waiting for the Olympics to be over so China can drop the other shoe. YMMV


Vlad is shuffling forces around in his latest Kabuki theater act.


I’d gladly exchange the sovereignty of that backwater for proof of illegalities most foul committed by the current Resident at 1600.
‘The enemy of my enemy…’ and all that.
Sheeeet, the way things are going I’d offer up a chunk of our northern neighbor to sweeten the pot!
Good thing I ain’t in charge?

BTWs, guess what country has almost zero exposure to US debt, sits on a ton of fuel, is the 2nd largest exporter of platinum, and a crapton of gold?
Answer: the country that rightfully possesses the Donbas and Crimea! (deal with it)


Well, the talking heads have been spouting off about these “sanctions” for several months now. If Ivan hasn’t figured out a way to mitigate, bypass, or avoid them by now, he isn’t as smart as I think he is.
