Anti-Russian sanctions of the EU and the United States deprived the Ukraine from half of its gross domestic product.
According to the parlamentarian, Russia and the EU lost only a small fraction of their GDPs. For the Ukraine, though, the sanctions led to a contraction of the GDP by a half.
This statement is also published on Murayev's news site NewsOne.ua.
Is the statement "sanctions against Russia harm Ukraine more than Russia", defensible?
