European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Western countries are ready to target Russia’s “weak point” if Russia invades Ukraine.
“We are talking about imposing new economic sanctions,” the President of the European Commission told “ARD TV”, noting that this would mean that Russia would be “practically isolated from the international financial markets”.
“As the economy is Russia’s weakest point, we will respond as strongly as we can with economic and financial sanctions,” he said.
At the same time, the President of the European Commission refused to answer the question whether he was considering separating Russia from the SWIFT financial system.
Von der Leyen pointed out that economic restrictions will affect “all manufactured goods” that Moscow needs to modernize and diversify its economy, and that these goods cannot be “replaced”.
