The order bans products and (or) raw materials “exported outside the Russian Federation”, which will be listed in the list approved by the Russian government within the next two days. These activities “include exports from Russia and (or) raw materials and (or) imports into the country for personal use by citizens of the Russian Federation, foreign nationals and non-citizens,” Efe said.
The order comes after US President Joe Biden announced today that his country would ban US imports of “oil, gas and energy” from Russia due to the invasion of Ukraine. And today, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said today that Russia has every right to take action if it imposes sanctions on its energy exports, such as a ban on gas reaching Europe through the Nordstream 1 pipeline.
Novak insisted that “no one will win (…)” with mutual restrictions on gas, even if European politicians, by their claims and accusations, push us.
