MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Russia is ready to increase imports of beef, milk, fruit and vegetables from Uruguay, the Ministry for Agriculture said in a press release on Wednesday.

"Russia and Uruguay have possibilities to give further boost to trade between the countries, in particular boost supplies of dairy products, beef and edible by-products from Uruguay to Russia," the press service quoted Deputy Minister of Agriculture Sergey Levin as saying at talks with Uruguay’s Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Fishing Tabare Aguerre.

"The Russian side is also interested in expanding imports of Uruguayan agricultural products on which Uruguay has climatic advantages - fruit and vegetables," it said.

The sides also discussed prospects for cooperation in the agricultural sector, the press release said.

For incorporation of Crimea after the 2014 coup in Ukraine, Russia came under sanctions on the part of the United States and many European countries. The restrictive measures were soon intensified following Western and Ukrainian claims that Russia supported militias in self-proclaimed republics in Ukraine’s southeast and was involved in destabilization of Ukraine.

Russia imposed a package of counter-measures against the countries that had introduced anti-Russian sanctions. The United States, the EU, Canada, Australia, Norway, Albania, Montenegro, Iceland and Lichtenstein are on the list.

Russia’s counter-measures involved a one-year ban on imports of vegetables and fruit, dairy and meat products from these countries. It was extended last June for another year.
