Kostin said the business in Germany, Moscow’s most active trading partner, is currently facing problems over financing the exports to Russia while “the Chinese have no such [difficulties].”
Germany’s state-owned KfW development bank and other banks have refused to help in view of sanctions introduced not only by the European Union, but also the United States, he said.
