Russian sanctions: to extend or lift?

The Russian prime minister said that Russia will make a decision on either prolonging responsive measures against some countries or not prolonging them.


“In the near future we will have to make a decision on either prolonging these responsive measures or not prolonging them. It’s clear that our actions, and I can say this directly, will be equivalent and be based on the actions of our partners from other countries.”The assistant head of Rosselkhoznadzor, Alexey Alexeyenko, told Vestnik Kavkaza that the abolition of the food embargo by Russia on a number of countries will not interfere with Russia's plans for import substitution."Another thing is that the market is seriously changing. North America and Europe are beginning to play a lesser role. For example, today we held negotiations with South Africa on the supply of fishery products. The market in Russia is changing and the trends are very positive," he said.According to him, the extension of the sanctions will have a positive impact on the food market in Russia. "A food market of the BRICS member states has already started to be formed. So there is nothing wrong with the fact that we cease to depend on supplies from the European Union and the United States," Alekseenko concluded.
