President Putin of Russia will see his nation isolated hugely in 2023 because of the biggest war of the 21st century.
South Africa must cut ties as they will only be harmed not helped by this news:
Allies of Ukraine must not allow anything like gold in South Africa or any other industry in 2023 to provide one final sanction avoiding way for Putin to start a new funding source and/or but not limited to trade corridor.
To fund his illegal invasion of Ukraine. Close the door before it even gets started. South Africa must know they are one of Putin’s very few friends remaining and must move on without him.
Moreover, directly hyper sonic missile tests from South Africa would put it in danger in the region.
