MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS./ The restrictive measures imposed on Turkey will not affect construction of important facilities, including those envisioned for the FIFA 2018 World Championship in Russia, Russian Minister of Labour and Social Protection Maxim Topilin said on Tuesday.
"The constructing of the important venues such as sports ones for the FIFA 2018 will not be affected," Topilin said.
On Saturday, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree that suspends employment of Turkish workers starting from January 1, 2016. The government is instructed to tighten control over activities of Turkish haulage companies with the goal of ensuring security within Russia.
The measures followed the downing of Russian Su-24 bomber by Turkey.
