NEW DELHI, October 14. /TASS/. Anti-Russia sanctions imposed by certain western countries do not affect the relations inside BRICS, President of Russia’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry Sergey Katyrin said in an interview with TASS.
"We haven’t felt this neither at the political level, nor regarding entrepreneurs as far as I know. We’re constantly in touch with the BRICS partners, we’re also in contact within working groups and the BRICS Business Council. And I have to say that we have no problems," he said on the sidelines of the trade exhibition of BRICS member-states on Friday.
According to Katyrin, many Russia’s partners within the integration even stood to gain from the sanctions.
"Certain members of the BRCIS managed to take the advantage and boost their supplies to Russia, tapping the share of European companies. For example, supplies of fruits and vegetables from China and meat supplies from Brazil have surged while India has boosted supplies of pharmaceutical products," he said.
