Moscow Asked to Ease EmbargoMoscow Asked to Ease Embargo

Russian officials have asked the government to allow some foreign companies, currently under embargo, back into the country’s market, claiming the businesses had become “hostages of the anti-Russia sanctions’ policy,” RT reported. The change has been proposed by a member of the State Duma committee for defense, Igor Zotov, and a member of the Presidential Council for Civic Society and Human Rights, Yana Lantratova. They (business leaders from Russia, Bulgaria, Hungary, and Montenegro) sent a letter to Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, recommending putting together a list of foreign companies that oppose anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the US and EU last year.
