Sanctions against Russia in general and the Urals in particular

The departure of the Swedish company IKEA from Russia may have a positive impact on the Russian market. This statement was made by the head of the Federal Antimonopoly Service Maxim Shaskolsky.

“IKEA, with all the advantages, “squeezed” the market under itself, and because of this, the sphere of production and trade in furniture did not receive the development that it could have. Now, perhaps, competition will appear in this market, manufacturers will develop their sales areas. And in this sense, maybe it will even be a plus for the development of competition, ”he said in an interview with RBC.

The fact that IKEA is finally leaving Russia became known in mid-June this year. Employees are going to be cut, and factories in the Leningrad, Kirov, Moscow and Novgorod regions will be sold. Furniture chain Hoff has already said it is ready to buy these assets. IKEA explained that over the past few months, the situation with business processes and supply chains around the world has worsened, as a result of which the company sees no prospects for resuming sales in Russian stores in the foreseeable future, writes RT. The company launched the latest sale of furniture and accessories, complements “National News Service”.

Prior to this, IKEA tried to leave the Russian market immediately after the start of Russia’s forced special operation in Ukraine. The company closed stores in Russia in March of this year. Sales in Russia were suspended by the H&M Group retail chain, one of the world’s largest sellers of clothing, footwear and accessories, followed by Apple, Nike and ASOS. Foreign car concerts – Audi, Volkswagen, Skoda and Porsche – also stopped working with Russian users. All this was a response to the special operation and subsequent economic sanctions imposed by Western countries. In response, the Russian government has taken a number of anti-sanction measures aimed at both business and ordinary citizens.
