Some Russian companies again ‘permitted to hire Turkish workers without restrictions’
REUTERS photoRussian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on May 16 signed a decree amending the list of companies that can hire Turkish workers, according to Russian media reports.
According to the decree reportedly published on Russia’s official website of legal information, the majority of companies to which the restrictions did not apply, will be able to hire Turkish citizens only within certain limits — no more than were employed as of Dec. 31, 2015.
The list includes six banks: Credit Europe Bank, İş Bank, Garanti Bank Moscow, Yapı Kredi Bank Moscow, Prokommertsbank and Ziraat Bank.
In addition, the instrument also reportedly approved an additional list of 14 companies to which the restrictions on the number of workers from Turkey do not apply.
Relations between Russia and Turkey deteriorated after Turkish fighter jets shot down a Russian Su-24 bomber near the Syrian-Turkish border in November 2015.
