MOSCOW, August 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow’s city government may organise stores, which will sell exclusively Russia-made products to replace the goods, which Russia has banned to import from the EU, the U.S. and some other countries, Izvestia daily writes on Friday.
“In our supermarkets the share of imported products is very high, and even potatoes and beet are imported,” an expert of the Moscow government’s trade department Vladlen Maximov told the newspaper. “Retailers will require time to adjust to the new conditions, to have new contracts with suppliers.”
“However, Moscow lacks small stores and kiosks selling mostly Russian products,” he added.
On Thursday, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a resolution banning the import of beef, pork, cheese, fowl, milk, and fish from the European Union, the United States, Australia, Canada, and Norway for one year.
The ban came in response to the Western sanctions imposed against Russia by the U.S., the EU, Canada, and Japan.
