The head of the German concern Adidas, Casper Rorsted, believes that Europe needs to improve relations with Moscow, the sanctions have already led to the loss of many jobs in the West, reports RIA News.


The head of Adidas: the opposition of Russia and Europe can not last for years


Anyone who believes that we punish only Russia with sanctions is mistaken. In the West, this led to the loss of many jobs. Politicians prefer to hush up this effect,
Rorsted said in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

He noted that he does not oppose sanctions, but the West needs to find a way out of the problem in relations with the Russian Federation, since "it is impossible to resist each other for years."

I have known Russia for many years, I feel intimacy with it. I like this country, its inhabitants, and I think that culturally Russia is much closer to Europe than others,
Rorsted added.

According to him, "given the turbulent situation in the world, European politicians should look for allies instead of quarreling with everyone in a row."

We will remind, earlier in Kiev declared alleged illegal activities bypassing the sanctions of three German companies in the Crimea, including Adidas. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin promised "to get the company politically and legally."

        And what can I say? Relations have been spoiled for many years. And they will remain bad. For we will not give up the Crimea and the West will not remove its demands for return.

      It is not a matter of sympathy for residents and the country as a whole, but in the usual loss of income. But all the same, he sets out the right thought, you need to be friends and trade.

    Germany suffered maximum losses due to sanctions, so in Germany voices against sanctions are heard more strongly. In other strong European countries, the losses are much less significant.
    Not all politicians are silent about the issue of sanctions, especially in Germany.

    Not when Russia and Europe did not live peacefully. Over the centuries, from the formation of Russia as an independent powerful state, the united Europe tried to enslave us. So with what fright, they will stop doing it now. They are now weakened, torn by contradictions. But the time will come, get stronger, and again climb. Yakov Kedmi said this well not long ago. And I support him.

      Losses, and still what, here and "sang"
      The Adidas Group, engaged in the production of sports brands Adidas and Reebok, will close 2017 stores in Russia in 200. This was reported by the group’s chief executive officer Casper Rorsted ... The main reason for the cuts, according to company executives, is loss-making. Adidas in Russia decreased by 17%, while the company grew in other markets.

      The sanctions that were imposed against Russia have not yet been particularly strong sanctions and the Sberbank is afraid to open in Crimea.

          Remember the movie Confrontation from 1985. There, the hero Basilashvili specifically speaks. I don’t remember the exact quote. There are walkers (such a factory in the USSR), but no one wears it. 1985 !!! Now is 2018, and things are still there. We know how to make rockets, tanks, at least not worse than the NATO ones, Airplanes are super-maneuverable, and easily. And before such everyday life as it is not matured.

            85 years, after the Second World War 30 years have passed. We will soon have 30 years since the collapse of the USSR and the devastation that followed. However, she was not at all the same as after 45. Only by the beginning of the 70s people began to eat more or less normally ... With all the mistakes of the authorities, in the first place they developed a complex and heavy industry. It’s the same as before the war, what if something were to survive .. Consumer goods were just consumer goods. Shoes need to be made, but this is not paramount. It was hard to withstand the whole world. In addition to external interference, there were many own mistakes, which in the end ditched everything ...

      In this very Afghanistan, we most appreciated the "Kimry" - the sneakers of the shoe factory that was in Kimry. Weathered a couple of months of socks. And I also wore Chinese Golden Cap there. As for the vaunted “adidas” from the “dukan,” they fell apart after a couple of weeks. Moreover, their soles shone at night.

    Russia is the No. 1 market for adidas.
    Adidas is one of the main sponsors of the Olympic Games.

    If, due to scandals allegedly with doping, we lose the prestige of these games or cancel broadcasts altogether, then this will seriously affect sponsorship contracts. In addition to adidas, our market is important for Coca-Cola, etc.

    When are the burghers and the burghers, when will you learn to work in the new conditions? You open production in the Russian Federation under the Start brand and a logo similar to Adidas. The fact that this is the daughter of "Adidas" still needs to be proved, but you can’t do it yourself, then there are a lot of similar specialists in multi-port systems.
