Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting with big business said that Russia’s economic partners should not push the country out of the international financial system, but there will be restrictions.

He noted that Russia remains a part of the world economy and, as far as it remains this part, is not going to damage the system of which it is a part.

“It seems to me that our partners should understand this and not set themselves the task of pushing us out of this system. Nevertheless, even for political reasons, these restrictions will be,” Putin said.
