Power ready when needed to support large companies, which are subject to sanctions. This was announced by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, reports RBC.
According to him, in the case of new restrictions, “nothing critical not happen.” “But all of it is unpleasant, of course, will force us to certain decisions if necessary, including in support of individual large companies, if they are under that kind of sanctions,” he added.
The Prime Minister spoke on the topic of sanctions a day after statements by the US state Department about the intention to introduce a second package of sanctions against Russia for failing to comply with U.S. law on the elimination of chemical weapons. We are talking about the allegations of chemical warfare agents “Newcomer” in the British Salisbury, which Moscow denies.
For the first time Washington’s intention to introduce further anti-Russian sanctions, it became known in September. It was assumed that they will take effect in November and will apply to banks, purchases of goods for defense purposes, as well as financial assistance.
In particular, the United States will cease to issue licenses to export to Russia arms and dual-use goods, with the exception of the export to space industry and in the field of civil aviation. Also announced the cessation of all U.S. aid to Russia, except for urgent humanitarian assistance, food and other agricultural products.
