If the Russian economy was booming as Russia claims, its factories would be running and pollution levels would be normal.
Instead, Russian industry has shut down so much the drop in pollution is visible from orbit.

The true impact of a year of war on Russia's economy | DW Business Special
"Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld from Yale School of Management joins us to discuss the true impact of a year of war on Russia’s economy. The likes of the International Monetary Fund say they expect Russian GDP to grow this year. Professor Sonnenfeld argues that those predictions are not based in reality."
"We discuss the work of Professor Sonnenfeld’s team in keeping track of which companies have pulled out of Russia and which remain. Also hear why the professor believes Russia’s hands have been tied by sanctions against its oil and gas sectors."
Got to get this in before the spammers hit...
European trade with Russia down.
Russian sea trade up.
Russian trade with China and Asia up.
Russian household consumption, real estate, other business down
By now, there is ample evidence that the sanctions are in fact hurting the Russian war effort and economy.
Is tank production essentially pollution free?
While Ukraine is BOOMING. 🙄
Suffering is a way of life for most Russians.
A little less of a little bit is next to zilch.
Here in the USA food prices have doubled on many items. I walked by the potato chips, olives, cream cheese and onion dip mix today, all of which I didn’t buy.

Thank you for signaling this is a important article that provides information one camp here does not want to hear and drown out.
Ukraine is not pretending all is well with their economy, they are low key about it. It is Russia pretending the sanctions are having no effect. By now it is obvious to outside observers the sanctions are starting to cut into Russian war and domestic economy.
“the United States emerged in 1945 in an incomparably stronger position economically than in 1941″

Modern manufacturing is essentially pollution free.(I’m a Podunk Manufacturer)
I’m sure a “Troposphereic Monitoring Instrument” is the most accurate instrument ever invented in world history.(sarcasm)
The whole globe will be in a slowdown by the end of the year, I wouldn’t get too worked up over this bullshit article.
That’s just the new green initiative implemented by Putin
Russia has moved to wartime industrials.
His plan is not working out as intended. 😆
In real life, Russia returned to top ten economies for the first time since 2014, on 8th place no less.
At the start of the “Special Military Operation” more than a year ago, the Ukrainian Army outnumbered the Russians by a factor of three. Even with their advantage in numbers, the Ukrainian defenses failed to stop the numerically inferior Russian force and failed to expel the Russians from the Luhansk and Donetsk territories.
We now are being enticed to believe that Ukraine, with a numerically inferior force compared to Russia’s current troop deployment, is going to mount an offensive, despite a severe lack of tanks, armored vehicles, mobile artillery and air cover, that will drive the Russians from fortifications erected during the last six months.
Ukrainian officials persist in making wild claims about Russian defeats, low morale and catastrophic casualties. There is a very simple test you can do to evaluate the Ukrainian claim about Russia’s losses — find the social media and count the photos and videos. If Russia had suffered the number of killed and wounded cited by Ukrainian and Western officials and pundits, then it would be impossible to hide those photos and videos. Social media and smart phones are ubiquitous and grieving wives, girl friends, parents and friends are not easy to corral.
Images and videos like the following are widely available on Ukrainian Telegram channels. The opposite is true when it comes to finding comparable material on Russian channels. There are a few photos of newly dug graves in a Russian military cemetery, but nothing like the quantity of images recording Ukraine losses.
"MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russia has returned to the top ten largest economies and ranked the eighth for the first time since 2014 by producing $2.3 trillion worth of goods and services in 2022, data from the World Bank and statistical services analyzed by Sputnik showed on Sunday."According to Sputnik? 🤭. Not even the Russia Central Bank or agencies just repeating official Russian numbers? 🤭 Post #2 explains how those numbers are made up. The real validation is what Russia shows of its economic and industrial capacity and trade. What that shows is the Russian economy is facing sufficient hardships that pretending the sanctions are having no effect is increasingly harder to maintain.
These days I just look at steak.
That’s all I can afford to do.
