Recall that after the introduction of the first sanctions packages, the American president in 2015 declared that the Russian economy was "torn to shreds" because of the sanctions. At the same time, Obama used another sensational term - “international isolation of Russia”.
Somehow he doesn’t travel much to us, he promised us that our economy would be torn to shreds. Let him come, look at these shreds.
Apparently, Dmitry Anatolyevich sees its merit that Obama's statements from 2015 have not become a reality. And if so, then Dmitry Medvedev is determined to once again “fight” for the premiership. Or, at least, leave behind him the "status" of the chairman of the government, who "did not allow the Russian economy to be torn to pieces."
Recall that the composition of the new government, Russian President Vladimir Putin will announce after the inauguration, scheduled for 7 in May.
