We have been learning about how the leader of Russia, Vladimir Putin, has cheated the rules and laws of his country. He has stayed in office for 17 years straight. As he had been Russia’s president for 8 years, then Russia’s PM for another 8 years, and then he became the President again! So, he could end up living the rest of his life switching between the two! He has NOT been following the rules, and has NOT been allowing his people to have Human Rights!
One example of a right being taken away in Russia is: The LGBT Right! Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender! These people should be able to love who they love, but in Russia they will be either arrested or killed by the police if they express their love.
I think that the UK should get more involved, by restricting trade between our country and Russia. Doing this will ensure that Russia will lose a lot of supplies. But this might only affect the poor people of the country, as the rich might be unaffected by it. Plus, we have already been restricting our trade with Russia! But nothings changed, and we might only cause 0% change in how Russia is already acting!
A reason for why I think this is that if we restrict our trading routes with Russia. Both of us might lose supplies, and then we mighty just be making the wrong people suffer in Russia. For a second opinion of mine, I suppose that we could raise prices dramatically so that ONLY Russia will be affected, as it will have to pay more money!
