The former Russian president, who has close ties to Vladimir Putin, issued a threatening message on Tuesday after French Economy Minister Bruno Le Mai. Said:
We are waging a full-fledged economic and financial war against Russia.
He also pointed out that Western countries are ready to impose new sanctions.
We urgently need to raise the cost of the war (against Ukraine) for Vladimir Putin (Russian President).
The French president’s office said Monday night that sanctions had “caused more pain for Vladimir Putin (Russian president) than he expected”.
Bruno Lee Marr acknowledged that the Russian people would understand the consequences of sanctions “because of the leader.”
