MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Russia will need time to substitute banned Turkish goods, Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev said on Wednesday.
"I think and hope we have good opportunities for substitution of these products. We have two positions where the share of Turkish export is very high - these are tomatoes and citrus fruit, primarily lemons. We have many countries, Arabic nations, Iran, North Africa and some others, which are able to supply significant amounts of such products. Certainly, time is required for contracting and for phytosanitary supervision," Ulyukayev said.
The situation is "absolutely manageable," the minister said. "We will certainly close all positions on the Russian consumer market within the reasonable period of time," he added.
The Russian Government will prohibit import of certain foods from Turkey. Starting from January 1 of the next year, Turkey will be banned from exporting fruits (oranges, tangerines, grapes, apples, pears, apricots, peaches and nectarines, plums, wild strawberries and strawberries) and vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, yellow onions) to Russia. Supplies of frozen turkey and chicken are banned as well as along with fresh Turkish pinks and salt. The ban does not cover goods brought to the territory of the Russian Federation for personal use in the amount permitted by the Eurasian Economic Union.
