I'm trying to understand what is the point of the penalties against Russia as a result of the war. For example, consider the collapse of Russian currency (as a result of sanctions), wouldn't this effect the average Russian person more than the bureaucrats who passed the decisions?

Suppose Russia was a democracy, I could understand the idea of the sanctions as when the next elections come, people would choose a better leader who would not take such decisions which led to the sanctions. However given the current political system, is there anything which is being achieved?
