MOSCOW, September 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Foreign partners are already holding negotiations with Russia’s Agriculture Ministry to be the first to resume food supplies after the country lifts a year-long ban on imports from the West, a senior government official said on Monday.
“It is encouraging that we already receive signals from a number of foreign agriculture ministries seeking contacts, and the interesting thing is that they are looking forward to being the first ones to supply their agriculture products to Russia after the restrictions are removed,” said Ilya Shestakov, head of Russia’s fisheries agency Rosrybolovstvo.
Russia banned imports of meat, fish, dairy, fruit and vegetables from the United States, the 28-nation European Union, Australia, Canada and Norway for 12 months since early August, retaliating for Western penalties over events in Ukraine.
Combined with other import bans imposed earlier this year, the latest trade measures cover Western imports worth $9.1 billion in 2013, according to Russian customs data.
