MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. The Kremlin has declined to comment on the proposals of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade (Minpromtorg) on restrictions of the imports of light industry goods from Turkey. "Here you have to ask Minpromtorg about the reasons, that’s the government’s competence," presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade proposed to ban the imports of from 70 to 80% of light industry goods from Turkey, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Viktor Yevtukhov told TASS on the sidelines of the Internet Economy forum. According to him, "70-80% of the Turkish light industry imports is what we can easily substitute." This is not considerable light industry import - it amounts to 1.1 billion euros and makes up 6% of the votal volume of our imports," he said.
According to Yevtukhov, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has handed over the proposals on the restriction of imports of Turkish light industry goods to Russia to the Russian Ministry of Economic Development.
