The government will be able to introduce special measures in the economic sphere to ensure the conduct of special operations abroad, when it considers it appropriate, said presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Earlier that day, it became known that Vladimir Putin had signed the relevant law , giving the government this right. Peskov was asked at a briefing under what conditions the government would be able to introduce these special measures.
„This is attributed to the government. As far as the government considers it appropriate, it has the right to apply them,” he replied.
The journalists noticed that the government would partially duplicate the president’s powers specified in the martial law regulations.
„We are not in a state of war. We have a special military operation. This has its own specifics,” the president’s press secretary noted.
He reiterated that the conditions for the application of special measures „are determined by the government”.
A law was signed on the government’s right to introduce special measures in the economic sphere to ensure that the Russian Armed Forces, other troops, military formations and bodies conduct counter-terrorism and other operations outside the territory of Russia.
In accordance with a presidential decree, special measures may, among other things, provide for: carrying out activities carried out by federal executive authorities, executive authorities of the regions, local governments and organizations, the procedure for their financing and logistical support.
In addition, such measures include the temporary reactivation of mobilization capacities and facilities, as well as the unbooking of material assets of the state reserve.
