MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. Sanctions against the Russian electronic industry have lost sense after Russia and China launched cooperation in this sphere, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Friday, commenting on the results of Russian-Chinese talks.
"All the sanctions that have been introduced against the Russian electronic industry, they lose all meaning, as we are approaching the creation of a joint [with China] production, including of the receivers, which are necessary for the development of the navigation system," said the deputy prime minister.
Referring to other projects, Rogozin said that China is interested in the supplies of Russian space engines for Chinese outer space exploration programs.
Referring to the bilateral atomic energy industry cooperation, the deputy prime minister said that Russia was ready to demonstrate in the near future to the Chinese partners the work on the creation of a floating nuclear power plant that is 70% ready. The floating power unit is being built in Russia’s north-western shipyard in St. Petersburg. Moscow is also interested in cooperation in the construction of floating heat and power plants, however, in a batch of at least 6 power units. "The corresponding work is underway," Rogozin said.
