Russians Can Defeat Obama's Sanctions Through Sacrifice

The Obama administration has led the European Union to jointly apply economic sanctions to starve Russia of the $59 billion in investment capital the nation needs to keep its oil and natural gas revenues high enough to fund over 50% of the Russian federal budget.

Although these sacrifices would be painful, the Russian people are known for being very tenacious and patriotic when challenged by foreign powers. 29 Jul 2014, 8:23 AM PDT
