The Russian government had decided to close down the Cherkizovsky market, the country's largest wholesale market, dominated by Chinese traders, in the interest of the domestic textile and clothing sector.

Fibre2fashion had reported in June about the crackdown on the market by Russian authorities and which led to the burning of goods of 22 containers, reportedly containing illegally imported goods, which includes textile and clothing.

In a televised interview, Mr Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Russia said that, after the shutdown of Cherkizovsky market, Russia's textile industry had grown by 3 percent, and the production of pants and suits had increased by 16 percent and 13 percent, respectively.

He added by saying that, "We will never win as long as domestic manufacturers are hit by smuggled and counterfeit goods, but at the same time, Russia wants friendly relations with its partners, including China”.

In early June this year, the Russian government burned 22 containers of children's wear and children's shoes owned by Chinese merchants under pretext of harmful substances. In September last year, Russia had seized 7000 containers of Chinese goods in a bid to stop illegal imports.

According to the Russian authorities, the Cherkizovsky market was dominated by Chinese traders who were staying illegally in the country, along with which they were dealing in smuggled goods, including textiles, garments and footwear.
