Russia’s global isolation is not as strong as in Europe, Switzerland admitted.

Russia’s global isolation is not as strong as in Europe, Switzerland admitted.

Russia’s isolation “on a global scale” is not as strong as in Europe, which proves that the world has become multipolar, according to a report on the neutrality of Switzerland by the Federal Council of the country.

“It was the Western states that first of all reacted to the attack on Ukraine with sanctions. Of the G20 members, nine states did not impose sanctions,” the document says.


The authorities note that the conflict in Ukraine further highlighted that in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, many states do not want to take the position of any of the world’s poles of power.

“The world has become multipolar. In this context, the war in Ukraine has partially changed the existing regional dynamics, creating new dependencies and networks, especially with regard to energy supply and food security,” the report adds.
