Germany's exports to Russia in 2018 increased by € 130 million
The volume of deliveries of German firms to Russia in 2018 amounted to € 25.9 billion, which is € 130 million more than last year.
It is reported by Deutsche Welle, citing the response of the Government of Germany to the request of the Bundestag deputy from the Left Party Dietmar Barch.
The document states that export figures reflect "to a large extent the development of the situation in the Russian Federation."
In 2014, the European Union imposed sanctions on Russia, after which the volume of German exports to Russia began to decline, but in 2017 this figure began to grow.
Earlier it was reported that German companies invested € 1.76 billion for the first quarter of 2019.
