PutinТs spokesman: Government considers RenovaТs aid request
MOSCOW, May 3 (PRIME) -- The Russian government is considering an aid request of multi-industry holding Renova Group, President Vladimir PutinТs spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
Kommersant business daily reported that the company had sent a letter to the government that contained a very long list of suggested support measures ranging from refinancing of loans to a ban on imports of all sodas and mineral water to help the company that was hit by the U.S. sanctions.
УThis is in the competence of the government. It was created and formalized for the cabinet of ministers, so I recommend that you ask them. The government is working on this issue, but they have made no decisions yet,Ф Peskov said.
Saying that some companies use the sanctions to gain state support and solve internal problems is incorrect. УYou think that Renova is trying to abuse the situation? Renova, which was hit by these illegal sanctions? I think that is an incorrect question,Ф he said.
