MOSCOW, November 28. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has put his signature under the decree that envisages bans on or restrictive measures against imports of certain goods from Turley in line with the register approved by Russia’s government, the Kremlin press service said on Saturday.

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 organisations under Turkey’s jurisdiction to conduct certain types of activity within Russia in line with the register drafted by Russia’s government.

The government is instructed to draft registers for relevant goods and services.

Ban on employment of Turkish nationals

Besides, the decree suspends employment of Turkish nationals starting from January 1, 2016.

The president ordered to agencies of power, legal entities, organisations and individuals to proceed from the fact that Russia "imposes a provisional ban for employers and labour (or services) customers that are not included in the register determined by the Russian government to get involved in the labour activities (in providing services) starting from January 1, 2016 the workers from the Turkish Republic who are not engaged in labour or civil law relations with the companies or customers concerned as of December 31, 2015."

The government is instructed to determine a register of the employers or customers concerned and to "determine a register of contracts concluded with organisations under jurisdiction of the Turkish Republic for delivering goods or providing services not subject to special economic restrictions envisioned in the given decree."

Earlier TASS reported that Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich was expected to deliver a report on restrictive measures against Turkey. On Thursday, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told the cabinet that Russia would impose restrictions on Turkey and freeze some joint projects in response to the attack on Russian Su-24 plane.

Ban on selling on selling tours and related services linked to visits to Turkey

Besides, Putin has signed a decree that imposes a ban on selling Russian nationals tours and related services linked to visits to Turkey.

"I order that travel agencies and tour operators should refrain from selling to citizens of the Russian Federation the tours and related services envisioning visits to the Turkish Republic," the presidential decree says.

The decree titled ‘On measures to ensure national security of the Russian Federation and protection of citizens of the Russian Federation from criminal and other illegal activities and on introduction of special economic measures against the Turkish Republic" is available by TASS.

Russia’s government has been instructed "to adopt measures stipulating a ban on chartered flight between the Russian Federation and the Turkish Republic.".


On November 24 An F-16 fighter jet from the Turkish Air Force shot down a Russian Su-24M bomber. Ankara claims the Su-24M bomber violated the Turkish air space in the area of the border with Syria.

However, Russia’s Defence Ministry has said the Su-24M plane stayed exclusively over the Syrian territory and "there was no violation of the Turkish air space."

The crew of the Su-24M bomber managed to eject but one of the pilots was killed by gunfire from the ground. The second pilot was rescued and taken to the Russian air base.
