Biggest mistake U.S., Europe are making is to sanction Russia, says Fani-Kayode

Nigerian politician and former Minister of Culture and Tourism, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, has advised the U.S., and European nations against retaliating the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Fani-Kayode, via @realFFK, on Friday tweeted that any retaliatory move against Russia would be counterproductive and disastrous.

He tweeted: “The Russians are the most dogged & resilient fighters on earth: history proves that. The world needs to handle this issue with wisdom, restraint & care.

“The slightest miscalculation or mistake could lead to a nuclear exchange which could cause half of our planet to dissappear.

“The biggest mistake America & Europe are making is to try to bring Russia to her knees financially & economically through “strong sanctions” & “new limitations”.

“You do not try to impoverish & break a nation that has more nuclear weapons than any other apart from the U.S.”

Recall that on Thursday, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) chief, Jens Stoltenberg, said that the bloc stands with Ukraine at this terrible time, and would defend all allies.
