The Russian government is ready to introduce protective measures in aircraft building, shipbuilding and the automobile industry.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said this at a government meeting on Thursday, ITAR-TASS reported.
“We are potentially ready to introduce protective measures in aircraft building, shipbuilding, automobile, and other sectors, but we will be doing this judiciously,” Medvedev said.
He said that the government understands how significant cooperation in this area is.
“But, naturally, we realistically assess our own capabilities as well,” he said.
