USA is stronger than other States affected by the sanctions imposed by the West on Russia, said American financier, billionaire investor Jim Rogers.
"All will suffer losses from these penalties, including America, without a doubt, including America. Unfortunately, at the time and the Russian Federation (losses ? approx. OPINION). But in the end, I'm afraid it is America will suffer more than others ", ? said Rogers in a conversation Sputnik Agency, RIA " Novosti ".
according to his statement, a vast majority of Asian States do not pay attention to punishment, leading To the rapprochement between Russia and Asia." I find very strange the fact that North America has imposed a punishment, since the entire problem in Ukraine have created America, trying to make the illegal coup. But the fact remains, punishment is still in force, and their main effect ? the convergence of the Russian Federation to Asia and away from America " ? Rogers added.
