The UN special Rapporteur assessed the damage countries from sanctions against Russia
Moscow. April 28. INTERFAX.RU — Financial losses of the countries that imposed anti-Russian sanctions, is approximately two times higher than Russia’s losses from these measures. Such data was presented by the UN special Rapporteur on the question of negative effects of unilateral coercive measures on the enjoyment of human rights Idriss jazaïry.
“The loss of the countries that have imposed sanctions amount to more than $ 100 billion. If we add to this the losses suffered by Russia as a result of sanctions, a very approximate estimation, which can be applied, is that Russia has lost 1% of GDP,” said Jazairi at a press conference at Central office “Interfax”.
“When calculating the total losses of the Russian Federation is estimated at 52-55 billion. We can say that this is the price you had to pay for the Ukrainian crisis”, — he said.
The Rapporteur noted that orphaned means both sides could be put to better use.
100 billion plus 52-55 billion — about 150 billion U.S. dollars, is three times the GDP of Ethiopia if you can find the best use of this money?Idriss Jazaïry
