The purpose of the decree is to “ensure the security of the Russian Federation and the uninterrupted operation of the industry” and will be in effect until December 31, 2022, according to Russian news agencies. Among other things, the decree prohibits “exporting outside the Russian Federation” products and/or raw materials, which will be specified in the list approved by the Russian government in the next two days.
