Kazakhstan may restrict import of Russian goods

KazahstanKazakhstan may ban or restrict import of some goods from Russia due to the inability of Kazakhstani producers to compete with cheap Russian goods, Russian newspaper “Kommersant” reported with reference to its sources in Russian Agriculture Ministry.
“Astana insists on a ban or restrictions on the supply of some products from Russia due to the threat to Kazakhstan’s domestic market resulting from the devaluation of the ruble…the products include petroleum products, vehicles, building fittings, cable and wire products, glass containers, meat and eggs, pasta and confectionery products, flour and juice, “- the newspaper said, citing its sources.
Kazakhstan has been in talks on the import restriction issue with Russia for a week now but has not provided “sufficient justification for the restrictions” yet.
