KRASNOARMEISK (Moscow region), September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Western sanctions imposed on Russia over Ukraine won’t obstruct the development of Russian robotic engineering, a deputy chairman of the Military-Industrial Commission said on Monday.
Oleg Martyanov said that despite a possible shortage of foreign components amid sanctions, the situation could even encourage the development of home technologies.
“These days, sanctions won’t be able to slow down the development. Today, we are capable of using the existing capacities and moving further without a stop,” he told a military-industrial conference.
He said plans were to make the conference annual and international.
Since March, the United States and the European Union have imposed a series of sanctions against Russia over its stance on the conflict in Ukraine. Moscow has responded by imposing an embargo on food imports from the countries that hit Russia with sanctions.
