We are talking about importers of fabrics and textile products – the “white list” of importers of readymade garments is not planned, the newspaper notes.

Wednesday, 13 January, the Commerce Department asked the relevant organization Soyuzlegprom (unites manufacturers of linen, clothes, etc.) to fill in the corresponding form of the Federal customs service; * a copy of the letter is “News”.

This will allow FCS to apply the “risk profiles to the products supplied for the needs of Russian enterprises”, that is to pass through the border of those who brought fabric to the domestic mills, said the newspaper.

But he added that an official ban on transporting textiles from Turkey, although importers have bought the product anyway since November are on the border, so the situation is systemic in nature, so solve it that way.

At the end of November 2015 the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on sanctions against Turkish companies after the incident with the Russian su-24 bomber, was shot down by the Turkish air force on November 24. The decree, in particular, forbade the employment of Turkish citizens, has imposed restrictions for Turkish firms, and prohibited tour operators to sell tours to the country and to organize charters.

December 28 was published a decree on the extension of sanctions against Turkish companies, signed by the President. The document prohibits or limits the performance of Turkish organisations of separate kinds of works on the territory of Russia. And these restrictions apply not only to companies under the jurisdiction of Turkey, but also to those that are controlled by Turkish nationals.
