A political analyst tells Press TV that different countries around the world are now realizing that Western powers are using Ukraine as an excuse to impose more sanctions on Russia, Press TV reports.
During an interview with Press TV, Jim W. Dean said countries that “were on war of sanctions, like Finland, some Latin countries” are beginning to see that they need to be more active in “de-escalating” the Ukraine crisis, in order to prevent more sanctions from being imposed.
“They realize now that Ukraine is being used by the West to create this sanctions war against Russia,” Dean said.
Over the past months, Western states have placed sanctions on Russia, including on its financial and energy sectors.
“NATO is running a psychological operation on the military threat from Russia... [while] the Russian military threat to Ukraine is non-existent,” Dean said.
