According to Peskov, no final decision on this issue has been made yet: the discussion on which imports should be banned is underway. “The reasonableness principle should be observed. In some cases substitution is impossible,” the presidential press secretary said Monday.
The Kommersant daily wrote earlier on Monday that the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade has prepared the “general directive” to the state companies concerning the ban on the purchases of imported metallurgy, heavy machine building and automobile industry products. According to the newspaper, the ban should apply to the imported products except those that have no analogues in Russia.
According to the market players, the ban may affect most of all special construction equipment and aircraft supplies, while metallurgy and automobile industry will not suffer much. The newspaper says that the document should come into force before the end of the year: the directive will be considered first by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov and then it will be sent to the Federal Agency for State Property Management (Rosimushchestvo).
