KALININGRAD: Moscow may ban the supply of a number of Ukrainian goods to Russia as part of its countersanctions against Kiev, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told reporters.
“It concerns banning certain categories of goods that are produced in Ukraine for their delivery to Russia,” he said when answering a question about retaliatory measures Moscow is going to take in response to Kiev’s anti-Russian sanctions.
“Our Ukrainian colleagues do not particularly stress this, but Ukraine’s trade turnover with Russia is very significant, we are talking about billions of rubles,” Medvedev said.
According to him, despite all the measures Kiev took against Moscow, Russia remains the largest foreign trade partner of Ukraine, the Russian Prime Minister said.
He added that that Moscow will take into account this circumstance when taking retaliatory measures against Ukraine.
