Sanctions Can't Force Foreign Companies Out of Russia, Medvedev Says

Sanctions will not succeed in pushing foreign firms to leave Russia if those firms are truly interested in doing business with the country, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.

"Those who are interested in cooperating with us in any area, be it science, manufacturing, or investment in our economy — they won't go anywhere, because it is an absolutely natural process," Medvedev said Tuesday at a meeting with local businessmen.

"We have no restrictions [on business with foreigners], and we will continue all forms of cooperation with all the companies that are operating here," Medvedev said. "I'd like to reiterate — the choice is with those who are seeking to do business in our country."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
