Blamed for the downing of the Malaysian airliner and the war in Ukraine, the West has been trying to punish Russia. But is it working?
The US and EU are now fighting an economic war with Russia and are determined to weaken Putin’s hold on power. The Russian economy is set to contract by 3% this year. How is Russia holding up under the sanctions and are these sanctions really about Ukraine? Or are they an attempt for the US to weaken its rival?
On this Infocus, we take a look at whether the sanctions are working. We find out how Russians are adapting under the sanctions and how many are now looking East instead of West. We also find out how popular Putin remains and how the Russians are fighting back against the US.
