Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich made a statement at a recent appearance, during which he said that Turkish ground shipments could also face restrictions when entering Russia
The first of such measures is scheduled to take effect January 1, 2016.
“Turkish companies had put forward the idea to introduce restrictions on automobile supplies,” Dvorkovich said, adding that every year Turkish truck drivers receive up to 8 thousand permits for work within the territory of Russia
Dvorkovich also said that restrictions will result in the need to issue fewer permits, down to 2 thousand annually. The government has already started developing the legal nuances for the project.
Commenting on the decision, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev
characterized the restrictive measures as a sensitive topic and instructed the Cabinet to discuss the relevant issues with the representatives of other member states of the Eurasian Economic Union in order to “avoid problems and manipulation”.
