Putin: Local companies to occupy place of foreign companies leaving Russia


May 26, Fineko/abc.az. "The withdrawal of some foreign companies from the Russian market may be for the best: their place will be taken by domestic manufacturers,” ABC.AZ reports, quoting Russian President Vladimir Putin as saying this in his speech at the Eurasian Economic Forum.

"Sometimes you look at those who leave - maybe thank God. We will occupy their niches. Our production has already grown. And it will land safely on the prepared ground. Nothing will change," he said.
