MINSK, August 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus has resources needed to raise food export supplies to Russia, republican Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusy told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.

“We are prepared to raise supplies of agrarian produce [to Russia],” the Belarusian deputy prime minister said.

The Belarusian Agriculture Ministry and the republican union of consumer societies are instructed to prepare a list of products which can be delivered to Russia “over negotiated supplies,” he said. “Today Belarus has some capacities to increase food supplies on Russian market,” Rusy said.

On August 6, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a decree to ban or restrict for a year import of agrarian produce, raw materials and food products from the countries which joined economic sanctions on Russia. In his decree the head of state instructed the government to make up a list of goods import of which will be restricted or banned and urged to take measures to contain food price growth.

Meanwhile, a governmental resolution which Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed on Thursday holds that Russia has imposed a full one-year ban on supplies of beef, pork, cheeses, poultry meat, milk, fish from EU states, the United States, Australia, Canada and Norway.

Import restriction became a first retaliatory measure to sanctions which the U.S., the EU, Canada and Japan imposed on Russia over the country’s position on the current events in Ukraine.
