Fyodorov's comments came in response to Scaramucci saying that the restrictive measures imposed on Moscow since 2014 have had "an opposite effect."
Axar.az reports that, the hedge fund founder, who was a fundraiser in Donald Trump's election campaign, suggested that the anti-Russian sanctions "galvanized the nation," saying that such initiatives could be effective, but the time has come to "think outside the BOX."
The United States and its allies slapped sanctions on Moscow following Crimea's peaceful and democratic reunification with Russia and the outbreak of the Ukrainian civil war, blaming the Kremlin for meddling in the internal affairs of the neighboring country. Russia has repeatedly denied these unfounded allegations, making every effort to resolve the Ukrainian war.
Anthony Scaramucci, who is expected to serve as an advisor to US president-elect Donald Trump and public liaison to government agencies and businesses, has "cool-headedly" stated that sanctions have achieved virtually nothing, political analyst Georgy Fyodorov told.
"I wouldn't say that these statements are meant to send a signal that sanctions will be lifted soon. This is merely a statement of the facts. It is true that if someone tries to pressure us from the outside, our society rallies around its leader, even if there are certain disagreements. This is the Russian mindset. In this case [people united around] Vladimir Putin," he said. "People who Trump will work with must understand this."
