Big role for America
According to diplomatic expert Robert van de Roer, the US is playing a key role in the war between Russia and Ukraine. “Biden needs to connect the rest of the world,” says Good Morning Netherlands on NPO1. “Medium-sized countries in Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.”
Van de Roer: “America is a nation of four powers. Diplomatic, military, political and economic power. A unique combination. Biden should implement it at the same time. That means strong diplomacy is needed. Focusing not only on Europe, but all parts of the world.
Illegal trade to Russia
The new sanctions imposed by the United States apply not only to Russia, but also to countries that provide goods to Russia via orbit. “A country like Armenia suddenly imports a huge amount of goods,” says American expert Willem Post. “It could go to Russia through illegal trade. It is significant that the Russian economy is growing even a little bit. I don’t expect that,” he said.
