Ukraine attack will cost Russia
April 22 , 2014
Vladimir Putin's rating increased and reached 72 percent during the Ukraine crisis but this could change when the Russians realize that their adventure is actually costing them.
New statistics reveal that nearly $51B flowed out of the nation in the beginning of 2014. "The longer the crisis over Ukraine lasts, the higher the economic costs to Russia are likely to be," Ilan Berman of the Wall Street Journal said. "Sometimes in the not too distant future, it might become considerably more difficult for the Kremlin to ignore the real-world price that is associated with its policies."
