GORKI, April 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev vows support for companies hit by sanctions, which will be converted into "development measures."

"We will provide support and help to companies in the sanction list, focused on preservation of jobs and keeping production in the first instance," the prime minister says. "We need to endeavor to convert these support measures into development measures, so that the government’s help will not be merely a support for these companies but will be possibly aimed at their further growth," Medvedev says.
