The Russian economist Valentin Katasonov agrees with this statement. At the same time, the expert is confident that this "war" is not limited to the economic component. The goals of this hybrid war are political. Using different tools of pressure - from informational and psychological to political-economic, the USA is trying to destroy the parity that has formed in the world and once again become the only military power.
Valentin Katasonov believes that in addition to using external levers of pressure, the American government is also putting on the so-called “fifth column” in Russia. This includes not only some of the oligarchs, but also members of the government.
