Russia’s ambassador to Sweden said that Putin and the Russian government ‘don’t give a s*** about’ the threat of U.S. sanctions.
A Russian diplomat has shot down suggestions that Russian President Vladimir Putin might even care about U.S. President Joe Biden’s threats to sanction the country over Ukraine.
Speaking to Sweden’s Aftonbladet newspaper, Viktor Tatarintsev, Russia’s ambassador to Sweden said that Putin and the Russian government “don’t give a s*** about all their sanctions.”
In a statement to the Swedish press, Tatarintsev said that Russia is self-sufficient and wouldn’t have any difficulty procuring what it needs to maintain the quality of life for its citizens should the worst come to pass.
“We are more self-sufficient and have been able to increase our exports. We have no Italian or Swiss cheeses, but we’ve learned to make just as good Russian cheeses using Italian and Swiss recipes,” he quipped. “Excuse my language, but we don’t give a s*** about all their sanctions. We have already had so many sanctions and in that sense, they’ve had a positive effect on our economy and agriculture. New sanctions are nothing positive but not as bad as the West makes it sound,”
The Biden administration has repeatedly threatened to impose sanctions on Russia if it makes a move on Ukraine.
Last week, the Biden administration’s deputy national security adviser for international economics, Daleep Singh, told NPR that there will be “crippling sanctions.”
“Yeah, you’re right. The president was definitive. He said, as your listeners just heard, if Russia invades Ukraine, Nord Stream 2 will not become operational. Why did he say that? Well, we have options, and Germany has options. And when the president’s answer was put to Chancellor Scholz, he said there’s no daylight between Germany and the United States, and that we’ll take all necessary steps together in a united and decisive fashion. And so I think, you know, a reasonable — a very reasonable conclusion from that press conference is that whatever is necessary to prevent Nord Stream 2 from becoming operational in the event of an invasion, it would be done,” he said.
“We’ve said if Russia sends a troop or tank across the border, we’re prepared to impose the most severe sanctions ever levied against Russia, and so are our allies and partners.”
While the legacy news media has been not only warning of a possible invasion of Ukraine by the Russians, but also advocating for it in some cases, neither Russia nor Ukraine have shown any verbal indication that a full-scale Russian invasion is about to occur any time soon.

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
