MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. Russia by no means will restrict grain export to Turkey, First Deputy Minister of Agriculture Yevgeny Gromyko said on Thursday.

"No, by no means will we do it unless the Turkish side offers (it)," he said, adding that Moscow is about to start "searching for alternative markets, channels and directions (for import flows)" when answering the question about potential suspension of Russian grain export to Turkey.

The official added that the probability of Turkey’s restricting Russian grain exports is "very low." "This measure gives profits neither to us, nor to them," he said.

Gromyko also said that the main share of flour produced in Turkey is made of Russian grain.

As TASS reported earlier Russian government has banned supplies of a number of food products from Turkey to the Russian Federation from January 1, 2016. Thus, import of fruits (oranges, tangerines, grapes, apples, pears, apricots, peaches and nectarines, plums, wild strawberries and strawberries) and vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, yellow onions) will be banned starting from January 1. Also, supplies of frozen turkey, chicken, fresh Turkish pinks and salt has been banned. The ban though does not cover goods brought to the territory of the Russian Federation for personal use in the amount permitted by the Eurasian Economic Union.

Meanwhile, the ban does not cover chilled meat, fish, nuts, lemons and some other types of food, which are Turkey’s biggest items of import to Russia.
