MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Domestically produced goods should become the country’s pride and joy, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting of the supervisory board of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives.

President Putin also asked the agency "to build up a system of selection and, most importantly, the promotion of domestic brands, so that companies can scale up production and sales of their products."
