St. Petersburg, once Russia’s “window to Europe”, is now closing one by one amid international sanctions

Peter the Great, a famous monarch in Russian history, in order to “embrace the world” and open to the outside world, in 1703 he chose to build the new capital of the Russian Empire, St. Petersburg, on a desolate swamp at the mouth of the Neva River; Window to Europe”.

More than three centuries later, President Vladimir Putin, known by some Russians as the new Peter the Great, has repeatedly stated in public his ambition to restore and reshape the former glory of the Russian Empire.

However, international sanctions following the Ukraine war have closed Russia’s windows to Europe and the world one by one in just a few months. In addition to the huge impact of the new crown epidemic on the economy for more than two years, ordinary Russians have a deep understanding of it in their daily lives.

BBC News Chinese special correspondent Shen Ping recently lived in St. Petersburg and observed the actual impact of international sanctions on Russians from the perspective of daily life.
