MOSCOW, September 13. /TASS/. Salt was included in the list of products that are prohibited from being imported to Russia from countries that have imposed sanctions against the country, according to the Russian government.
Salt (including table and denatured salt), pure sodium chloride, salt dissolved or not dissolved in the water, sea water were added to the Government decree from August 7, 2014, on the food embargo against the US, EU and other countries.
The decision comes into force on November 1, 2016.
In August 2014, Russia restricted food imports from a number of countries - the United States, the European Union, Canada, Australia and Norway - which had imposed sanctions on it over the Russian policies in Ukraine and Crimea’s reunification with Russia: the United States, the European Union, Canada, Australia and Norway. The banned foods included meat, sausages, fish, seafood, vegetables, fruit and dairy products. Later, Russia added Albania, Montenegro, Iceland and Lichtenstein to its sanctions list. In August 2016, Russia extended its food embargo until the end of 2017.
