Roger Altman, the investment banker and former deputy U.S. Treasury secretary, said Russian President Vladimir Putin is more vulnerable than people realize to sanctions that will test his population’s patience
Altman Says Putin s Russia a Weak Country May Bend to Sanctions - Bloomberg Business

“Russia is on the edge” he said. Hitler had the same thought that Russia can be bended. Well, I think sanctions just embittered russian people against America. The gap between the people of two countries increased, thanks to political games.
The propaganda war on both sides of the planet is conducted in pursuit of economic and political benefits. But ordinary people suffer

Sanctions made rouble rates fall, especially rouble/dollar. But Russian<->Chinese trade relations are being adapted to the present crisis now. Besides, Russia and China have rich golden reserves unlike the US.
