In order to create an immediate and strong pressure on the Russian economy, the USA has been applying various sanctions, creating mainly financial obstacles. The sanctions imposed, in addition to those applied by other countries and organisations, have left the Russian market badly affected, with falls in the rouble’s value of around 20%. In this year’s State of the Union speech, Joe Biden, mentioned the need to punish Russia for its acts against Ukraine.
