US imports from Russia

While the USA and other countries have again increased their business with Russia over the past 4 years, the volumes of cross-border businesses between Germany and Russia have declined during the sanctions. It is time that Germany’s manufacturers are again better positioned in this vast market of Eastern Europe and higher market shares are regained. Markus Jerger committed to cooperate in all areas of business activities not affected by the list of sanctioned products and services. Ambassador Netschajew confirmed his assistance in facilitating such cooperation.
