Russia angry Belarus and Kazakhstan do not buy goods from Crimea


Russia is indignant at Belarus and Kazakhstan over their unwillingness to buy goods made in Crimea. The countries explain it by the complicated geopolitical situation in the region, Russia's Chamber of Commerce and Industry head Sergey Katyrin told Crimean companies are forced to register in Russia's other regions in order to to be able to export their products, he said.

Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea in 2014. The international community, including Belarus, has not recognized it as part of the Russian Federation.
