(Yury Borisov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - On priority given to ships built in Russia for passing the Northern Sea Route )
- The Northern Sea Route is within Russian coastal waters. Therefore, we protect our shipbuilders in this respect.
... I think, this does not present any direct antibusiness measures. It is a normal protection of Russian manufacturers.
... There is a clause according to which the Government will provide permits for vessels built in other countries not to hinder the business process. Of course, we cannot cover all types of vessels at once. That is why this exception will work.
