ARKHANGELSK, March 30. /TASS/. Moscow has no plans to restrict the supplies of rocket engines to the US as a response to the US sanctions, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the plenary meeting of the Arctic: the Territory of Dialogue forum.
"We never act based on the principle ‘buy a ticket and stay at home’. We never take steps that may inflict damage on us. The Americans have been buying our rocket engines and it suits Washington for it saves the money, including those of the taxpayers, that otherwise would have been spent on the construction of their own engine-building facilities," Putin said. According to him, Russia also benefits from supplying rocket engines to the US.
"We never take steps that could damage the business and our international ties. So in this case, we are not going to do anything like that. While what the previous US administration did, damaged the US economy and people," Putin added.
He also said that by encouraging European countries to follow its example and introduce sanctions against Russia, the United States had damaged the European economy. As a result, European countries lost hundreds of thousands of jobs, he noted.
"This violates the principles of the World Trade Organization and the relevant international regulations. It is a severe violation as far as economy and human rights go," the Russian president said.
