ST. PETERSBURG, August 25. /TASS/. There will be no direct ban on the use of imported ingredients by Russian wine makers, First Deputy Agriculture Minister Yevgeny Gromyko told the media at the opening of the 24th exhibition Agrorus in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.
"No direct ban is due. We’ve just proposed a theme for discussion," he said.
"This is a long-term benchmark," Gromyko added. "We are not competitive as far as imported ingredients for wine-making are concerned. We will never produce products of our own if we don’t set such an ambitious task."
Gromyko said the proposals for a ban might be considered as an "indirect measure to develop the domestic wine-making industry in Russia."
