Pushing Russia out of international life is an absolutely hopeless and essentially impossible thing. This was stated by the press secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov in an interview with TASS.
He recalled that in preparation for the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which will be held in the northern capital on June 15-18, Vladimir Putin met with young engineers and entrepreneurs. At the meeting, the head of state spoke a lot about sovereignty – and technological, and industrial, and industrial, and trade, and so on, Peskov pointed out. “The President made an important reservation – this sovereignty of ours in no way means isolation,” he stressed.
According to him, Russia will somehow maintain various formats of integration with friendly countries and continue trade exchanges. “There will be new “neural networks” for both trade and production,” a Kremlin spokesman said.
Peskov described the current global situation as difficult. “It can be described as difficult in terms of this unprecedented economic war,” he said. However, at the same time, it pushes Russia and friendly countries to search for new mechanisms of interaction and financial settlements, the Presidential Press Secretary stressed.
