OREANDA-NEWS  Belarus will soon hand over to Russia a list of goods for which restrictions remain, Belarusian Ambassador to Moscow Dmitry Krutoy said. According to him, Moscow has declared its readiness to lift these restrictions.

"They are either local in nature, or at the level of government regulations. The Russian side has expressed readiness to lift these restrictions in the near future, if there are any," Mr. Krutoy told Belarus 1 TV channel.

According to the Ambassador, mechanical engineering is a critical segment for Minsk. Belarus wants to keep "at least a share of our supply companies in Russia." Mr. Krutoy noted that "a number of powerful federal programs are being implemented in the Russian Federation to upgrade the fleet in the field of electric transport and in the field of classic buses."
