Заседание Совета Безопасности • Президент России

В.Путин: Уважаемые коллеги, добрый день!
В нашей повестке – комплекс вопросов, связанных с обеспечением национальных интересов России в условиях ограничительных мер, которые вводят в отношении России некоторые государства.
Причины давления на Россию понятны. Мы проводим независимую внутреннюю и внешнюю политику, не торгуем своим суверенитетом, не всем это нравится, но по‑другому быть не может.
Сегодня очевидно, что попытки расколоть, разобщить наше общество, сыграть на отдельных трудностях, нащупать уязвимое, слабое звено не дали ожидавшихся результатов – ожидаемых для тех, кто эти ограничительные меры в отношении нашей страны вводил и продолжает их поддерживать.
Граждане России, все ключевые политические силы страны, отечественный бизнес понимают, что происходит, и знают, что нужно делать. Оперативно принятые меры позволили стабилизировать ситуацию в экономике, в финансовой сфере, на рынке труда, обеспечена устойчивая работа всех стратегически важных отраслей экономики. Продолжается реализация важнейших госпрограмм, в том числе в социальной сфере.
Более того, наши компании, отечественные производители доказали, что способны развиваться в жёстких условиях, находить новых партнёров, осваивать как внутренние, так и внешние рынки. Пример тому – высокая динамика отечественного агропромышленного сектора.
Заседание Совета Безопасности.

Заседание Совета Безопасности.
Уважаемые коллеги! Последние события показывают, что рассчитывать на изменение недружественного курса со стороны некоторых наших геополитических оппонентов в обозримом будущем не приходится. Так, недавно страны ЕС в очередной раз продлили действие своих так называемых санкций, а в США ведётся постоянная дискуссия об их ужесточении.
