The world agenda has been very busy lately. Because Russia’s attack on Ukraine as an operation decision changed all the balances. Even though Russia says that our aim is not an invasion, all the developments to date show the opposite of this situation.
Russia, which has become the focus of criticism with this decision, has started to struggle with sanctions one after another. Finally, the country, which took action with the announcement that Mastercard and Visa suspended their services in the country, is preparing to cooperate with China as a counter move.
