MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. No restriction will be imposed on imports of the light industry’s products from Turkey so far, Russia’s Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said on Tuesday.
"We’re thoroughly studying the issue, as of today no (restrictions) will be imposed in the light industry so far, especially regarding raw materials as it’s profitable for us from the viewpoint of receiving cheap raw stuff. We continue studying other types of goods, and will submit (the issue) to the government," he said.
On November 28, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree envisaging bans on or restrictive measures against imports of certain goods from Turkey in line with the register approved by Russia’s government.
According to the decree, Russia suspends imports or "restricts foreign economic operations envisaging imports to the Russian Federation of certain goods originating in the Turkish Republic in line with a register determined by the government of the Russian Federation (exclusive of the goods brought into the Russian Federation for individual use in the amounts permitted by the laws of Eurasian Economic Union)," the decree says.
"For purposes of protecting national security and national interests of the Russian Federation, protection of the citizens of the Russian Federation from criminal or any other illegal activities," the decree stipulates bans or restrictions for organizations under Turkey’s jurisdiction to conduct certain types of activity within Russia in line with the register drafted by Russia’s government.
The government was instructed to draft registers for relevant goods and services, as well as to assume measures to ban charter flights between Russia and Turkey, tighten control over operations of Turkish airlines in the Russian Federation, control in ports and control over providing transportation security in harbor waters of Russian sea ports in the Azov-Black Sea Basin.
