The West has imposed far-reaching sanctions on Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. “Our economy is now experiencing a shocking impact and there are negative impacts, which will be minimized,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters during a conference call. He described the situation as turbulent but said measures were already being taken to calm and stabilize it. “This is absolutely unprecedented.
