Former Vice Chancellor Austria Heinz-Christian Strache stated that as a result of the imposition of sanctions against RF, the European Union brought the inevitable shortage of raw materials closer. About it writes RIA Novosti.

He spoke as follows: “Inflation is massively hitting industry, business, <…> a record level of bankruptcies, unemployment is growing massively, more and more people are struggling with poverty, and the economy can afford less and less production – a shortage of raw materials is inevitable.”

In addition, Strache noted that due to high prices for raw materials, many European companies have ceased to be competitive in the international market.

As the Public News Service previously reported, member of the Federation Council Aleksey Pushkov announced the propaganda character the rhetoric of European countries about reducing energy dependence on the Russian Federation. He published the corresponding message in his Telegram.
