Any traveler to Russia will tell you that Russian influence—at least over visitors to the country’s capital—is a very real thing: you’ll fall under the spell of Moscow the minute you set foot in this endlessly fascinating and dynamic destination. Curiosity about Russia has increased as political intrigue has grown, which might explain why Moscow was the 14th-most trending city over the past year, according to our Google Search ranking. The global fascination has as much to do with the spectacular 2018 FIFA World Cup (Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium in the city’s 360-acre Olympic complex hosted the pivotal final matches) as with the Kremlin’s global ambitions. Accessing all this excitement has never been easier as the curious and opportunistic can fly into Moscow with ease: the city ranks #4 for Airport Connectivity, up one spot over last year. Once you’re on the ground, the recently renovated Moscow subway is increasingly the envy of many Western capitals, as much for its improved efficiency and reach as for its regally art-stuffed stations. Whatever brings you to the city, you’re in for an experience at stark odds with the West’s continuously dismaying news about Russia. Moscow is what Travel + Leisurecalls a “revolution of creativity,” giving it an atmosphere of young, free-thinking exuberance that has touched every aspect of city life, from its art and food scenes to quirky, only-in-Russia shared workspaces. The first so-called “post- Soviet generation” of Muscovites has traveled the world, returning with suitcases full of ideas that they’re unpacking to huge effect in their always-proud city, sanctions be damned.

Sanctions are really insufficient, we certainly need a real war. Should we sacrifice Europe to stop the Russians, or allow them to became even more stronger?

Because the sanctions as they exist today dont make sense. European and American sanctions prohibit companies from these countries to engage in some businesses with Russian partners. In other words, the US and EU virtually sanctioned their own companies (they limit exports of some goods and services).

The things should be opposite - it is Rissian companies should be restricted from exporting their goods and services.
