First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs Vladimir Dzhabarov said that Russia would not lose anything from the possible closure of trade missions in Ukraine and Lithuania, RIA Novosti writes.
Earlier it became known that the Ministry of Industry and Trade proposed to liquidate Russian trade representations in Ukraine and Lithuania.
Dzhabarov called this an absolutely correct decision. He noted that the Russian trade mission in Ukraine, in fact, has not been working for a long time, and it also does not seem necessary for trade relations with Lithuania, especially since, according to him, Lithuania is actively involved in anti-Russian sanctions.
Earlier it became known that the Ukrainian government decided to terminate the agreement with the Russian Federation on the mutual establishment of trade missions. The agreement has been in effect since October 1992.
