MOSCOW, June 24. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Agriculture suggests considering an option of flowers import restrictions within the food embargo renewal framework, Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev said on Wednesday.
"I think these matters can also be discussed in respect of flowers," the minister said.
"We bring up the proposal of banning confectionery import to the territory of our nation. Confectionery industry, canned fish...," Tkachev added.
The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance was the initiator of the prohibition of confectionery import to Russia, the minister said.
