On October 25, the third session of the 19th Annual Meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club was held in Moscow. The session was titled “Economic Warfare as a Defining Trend in Global Development”.
This year, the word “sanctions” has probably become the most common topic in the world's political and economic discussions, although it is incorrect to say that what is happening today is merely sanctions activity. A full-scale economic war has broken out in the world. Its main target is Russia, but the consequences for the entire planet are difficult to assess. Moreover, the mechanisms that are being worked out will be applied elsewhere.
