According to Russian Business Correspondent John Helmer, the dynamics of Russia’s relations with the West may be about to take an unexpected twist, which in his view could lead to the unraveling of the current Western imposed sanctions against Russia.
In the latest blog post on his “Dances with Bears” website, he discusses the significance of a ruling made by an Austrian court to refuse to extradite Ukrainian businessman Dmytro Firtash to the US on corruption charges, siting that US government charges against him are unsubstantiated and unlawfully motivated by political scheming. John then expands on how this decision could have significant implications, particularly for the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg who are set to judge whether EU sanctions against Russia are also unlawfully motivated.
In this exclusive podcast interview John discusses the situation further with MiningMaven’s Malcolm Palle. We hope you enjoy listening.
