Putin accuses West of 'robbery' through sanctions in national speech on flagging economy
Patriot missile system will end Russia-Ukraine war more quickly: Mike Pompeo
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo argues the U.S. providing Ukraine with the Patriot missile defense system will deter Russia and send a message to Vladimir Putin on ‘Varney & Co.’
Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the West on Thursday of "robbery" by operating under the guise of sanctions as international penalties bite Moscow’s economy.
The U.S., along with its G7 and EU allies, implemented swift and severe sanctions following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the international penalties have only continued to increase in the nearly 10 months since.
But Putin has refused to end his deadly campaign in Ukraine and in his Thursday speech blamed the West for what he called an unjustified "economic war."
