The Russian President has agreed to remove sanctions on three Ukrainian companies. In particular, “Bratslav” company, Barsky Machine-Building Plant and Rubizhnyansky Cardboard Factory were allowed to supply products to Russia. Putin backed the decision at a meeting with members of the Russian government on Wednesday, 14 October. This was reported by the Observer.
The proposal to remove the restrictive measures on Ukrainian enterprises was made by the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin.
“We are talking about those productions that were focused on the export of goods to Russia. We consider it possible to allow the supply of “Bratslav” company, Barsky Machine-Building Plant and Rubizhnyansky Cardboard Factory,” Mishustin said.
“If you support the return to our country of the products of such enterprises, the government will prepare the necessary documents. At the same time, of course, the interests of our producers will be fully respected,” he added, addressing Vladimir Putin.
“We are always ready to resume full-scale cooperation with Ukraine. Let’s assume that this is the first step and a gesture of good will on our part. Well, please, let me agree,” Putin replied.
Rubizhnyansky Cardboard Factory is located in the Luhansk region. It is one of the largest producers of cardboard and packaging in the country.
Barsky Machine-Building Plant operates in the Vinnytsia region. It manufactures heating boilers, parts for food industry equipment, lines for bottling wine and horilka drinks and soft drinks.
The company “Bratslav” is engaged in the production and installation of equipment for milk production in the Vinnytsia region.
It should be noted that on 6 October the President of Russia declared that the country is ready for removal of sanctions against Ukraine. According to Putin, these are sanctions against Ukrainian industrialists.
