Vladimir Putin about EEU: It would be foolish not to take opportunity

President of Russia Vladimir Putin told reporters about the benefits of the Eurasian Economic Union.

According to him, Russia is interested in goods from other countries. «They are cheaper and have better quality than the goods from countries where restrictions were imposed. I think these are natural processes. It would be foolish not to take it. Of course, all defend their interests in EEU," Vladimir Putin said.

He added that there were questions with the Belarusian colleagues. «We have given to Kyrgyzstan $ 200 million on a grant basis, other $ 500 million — to the development fund. Belarus got loans at $ 6 billion. This is not a waste of money, but the means that will bear fruit in future," the head of the Russian Federation said.
