KIEV, January 21. /TASS/. Ukraine's Ministry of Economic Development and Trade has published an updated list of commodities of Russian manufacture, the imports of which to Ukraine are banned. It includes confectioneries, fish, caviare, ketchup, and some other foodstuffs.
"The government has expanded the list of Russian foodstuffs that will fall under the import ban," Natalya Mikolskaya, a deputy minister of economic development and trade told reporters. "It includes more seventy additional commodity items, such as onions, seasonings, ketchups, fish, certain sweets like cookies and crisp breads."
"To prevent the imports of forbidden commodities to Ukraine under different codes, the embargo has also embraced the commodities that weren't imported (from Russia TASS) in the past twelve months," she said.
For instance, the list published by the ministry names garden onions, green tea, sugarplums, fully processed or conserved fish, caviare and fish roes, marmalade, chocolate candies with liqueur, and prefabricated foods.
Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk said earlier on Wednesday these were Kiev's "countermeasures" taken in response to the decision by the Russian side to ban the imports of Ukrainian goods.
The government resolution on the stop list of Russian commodities will take effect in ten days after its publication. The restrictions will stay in effect through to August 5, 2016, or until the Russian Federation lift its ban on imports from Ukraine.
"In addition, the Ministry of Economic Development has begun preparations for petitioning against Russia's actions through the mechanisms of the World Trade Organization," Mikolskaya said.
