Russian PM certain of EAEU uninterrupted operation amid new risks and challenges

YEREVAN. Oct 21 (Interfax) - Global instability and sanctions pressure have already become an integral element of life, but the resource base of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) allows the organization to remain stable, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said.

"These five countries have promptly been responding to ongoing changes. Consequently, decisions have been made to support our citizens and ensure the resilience of our economies. The positive effect of such joint steps is already obvious, which is confirmed by key macroeconomic indicators. At the same time, the resource base allows us to count on its uninterrupted functioning even in conditions of instability and the respective risks and challenges that are facing us," Mishustin said at a meeting between the heads of delegations to the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council and Armenian President Vahagn Khachaturyan on Friday.

Mishustin quoted Russian President Vladimir Putin saying that the world has entered a period of fundamental transformations, and countries now have to act in new conditions facing instability in the international trade system and unprecedented sanctions pressure from the collective West on Russia and Belarus.

"However, now this perceived by us as an integral element at the current stage," Mishustin said.
