Sanctions have helped to find new development paths and led to the emergence of new effective administration of the law.
Whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger [...] The sanctions didn’t just appear today. They have always existed: the first wave came in 2014, when the oil industry was 60% dependent on imports, but now it is no more than 40%. In literally five years, it will be no more than 20%. We are solving the goals of import substitution bit by bit […] and this includes new jobs, new technologies, our domestic expertise in all areas of business, and new developments. In this regard, the sanctions are helping us become stronger — Pavel Zavalny, Chairman of the Committee of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on Energy; President, Russian Gas Society.
I view what’s happening now on our end as a very constructive approach with the preservation of the existing framework of the legal system. Targeting problematic aspects selectively prevents us from destroying the system as a whole. I firmly believe that whoever initiates such sanctions against our country is definitely moving towards the destruction of the system as a whole. We’ll see. Let’s wait and see — Daniil Krainsky, Deputy General Director for Legal Support, Rosseti.
We view this time as a time of opportunity and a time of development for ourselves — Svetlana Nikonova, First Deputy General Director for Development, Interaction with Regions and Government Agencies, Rusatom Infrastructure Solutions JSC.
In terms of positive aspects from the sanctions imposed on Russia and Russian individuals, I would highlight the emergence of new effective administration of law […] The entire energy sector has realized the need to protect the energy sovereignty of the Russian Federation — Zhanna Sedova, General Director, Enel Russia.
A new concept of legal regulation is emerging, including in the fuel and energy sector, both at the national level and on foreign economic markets — Victoria Romanova, Scientific Supervisor, Research Center for the Development of Energy Law and Modern Legal Science named after V.A. Musina.
Our primary goal is reliable energy supply — Daniil Krainsky, Deputy General Director for Legal Support, Rosseti.
