74% of Americans believe Russian spec op to hurt US economy
The impacts of the elimination of Russia's supplies from the global market will be grave for the West, as Americans believe.
A poll published Friday by Rasmussen Reports reflected on the fear of US citizens over their economy in light of the Ukraine crisis and the western sanctions imposed on Russia, spearheaded by Washington.
The latest survey found that 74% of US adults believed that the Ukraine crisis was likely to hurt their country's economy, 40% of which underlined that adverse effects were "very likely" to impact the US economy.
Only 14% of surveyees believed that the Ukraine crisis was not likely to impact their country's economy, and another 12% were not sure whether or not there would be any impact.
The survey was conducted only a few days ago, on March 1-2, with 1,000 respondents and a margin of sampling error of +/-3 percentage points.
The assertions made by US civilians come ahead of the International Monetary Fund revealing that the Ukrainian crisis would have a "very serious" impact on the global economy.
Former US colonel and Eurasia Center Vice President Earl Rasmussen said that the European Union's latest sanctions and economic retaliation against Russia will backfire and cause a massive recession in Europe.
International energy companies had informed the Biden administration that there are few alternative supplies of gas available to replace Russian volumes if they were disrupted due to Ukraine, Reuters reported, citing State Department and industry sources.
