MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will actively restore economic ties with the new authorities in Arab countries, Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin said in his article "Russia and the Changing World" published in the Moscow News newspaper on Monday.
"We intend to actively work with the new authorities of Arab countries to promptly restore our economic positions," he said.
In the countries that have passed through "the Arab Spring", as earlier in Iraq, Russian companies lost decades-old positions on local markets, lost rather big commercial contracts, while the vacated places are occupied by the economic operators of the states that "had their hand" in the change of ruling regimes, Putin noted.
According to the premier, it is not ruled out that the tragic events themselves to some extent were stimulated not by concern about human rights, but somebody's interests in the redistribution of markets. But Russia does not intend to look with the Olympic calm at all this and will restore its positions, the premier stressed.
