European businessmen are disappointed with the decisions of their countries’ politicians made against Russia, as it will be hard for them to come back to the Russian market, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Sunday.
“The danger for our traditional suppliers is that when one company or another is fixed on a market, in particular, we are talking about the Russian market, it is very hard, almost impossible to budge them. And I think that the European companies, not political circles, as we say in such cases, but namely the businessmen understand this. They are disappointed with the politics of their countries," Putin said.
Putin also told Russia’s Channel One television station that currently Russia’s manufacturers cannot entirely replace the goods that used to be imported from the West, according to Novosti News Agency.
“That is why we are working with other foreign manufacturers from Latin America: Brazil, Argentina, Chile, with our eastern partners and Chinese producers". the Russian leader added.
