MOSCOW, March 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Western sanctions against Russia will be latent in character and will concern primarily Russian government’s plans to overhaul the manufacturing sector, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Tuesday as he addressed a meeting of the board of Federal Service for Defense Contracts (Rosoboronzakaz).
Rogozin believes sanctions will be spearheaded at Russia’s plans for furnishing the industries with novel technologies, effectuating the state armaments program and the current state defense contracts.
The West will likely make an attempt to block the supplies of products that have been already factored into Russian companies’ current contracts for industrial equipment and technologies necessary for the upgrading of our industry.
Rogozin also mentioned the imports “of the things we don’t manufacture ourselves and or the things, the production of which we haven’t mastered on our own territory yet”.
He said he meant the electronic components of various kinds and the outfits used in the creation of ‘smart weapons’.
He added that Western opponents always use the norms of international law in the way they find to be lucrative for themselves.
“They always put on the clothing of international law and use it in a most gainful manner,” Rogozin said. “When they needed to tear Kosovo away from Serbia, they did it, making allusions to the very same international law, but as much the same situation is taking shape across Ukraine, it happens to run counter their understanding and interpretation of international law.”
“That’s why we are to expect dirty tricks of all sorts from them,” Rogozin said.
