The situation on external markets remains completely unfavorable. To speak about financial markets, they are closed,” Medvedev said at a meeting with the leadership of the United Russia party. The prime minister said: “Trade markets are also restricted, both on one or the other side, the sanctions regime and responsive measures, which were introduced according to a presidential order and a government decision, are continuing to operate.” “There is a whole number of domestic and structural challenges.
