MOSCOW, May 11 (PRIME) -- Russian parliament has included support of the industries and companies, which suffered from the U.S. sanctions in a draft law on retaliation, Speaker of the State Duma, parliamentТs lower chamber, Vyacheslav Volodin, said at a meeting to discuss the draft law on Friday.

УWeТve included an additional stipulation on purpose, it allows us to decide on support of the industries and companies, which will bear the burden of sanctions on the one hand and on the other hand, we will also support them and back them up if we retaliate,Ф Volodin said.
