MOSCOW, September 13. /TASS/. Head of the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) Igor Artemyev sees no risks of shortage and growth of salt prices in the market after it was included in the list of products that are prohibited from being imported to Russia from countries that have imposed sanctions against the country, he told reporters on Tuesday.
"As I recall, Russia provides for itself, we have deposits. We received a part of it from Ukraine, and a part from Belarus. In this sense, thanks to maneuver within the framework of the single economic space, Russia will not have any problems with shortages or sudden growth of prices," Artemyev said.
He noted that "everything that is produced in the Eurasian Economic Union, covers our need in salt." "I think that there will be no reason for possible problems," Head of FAS said.
Earlier 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.
Earlier embargo on imports imposed by Russia in response to the sanctions included meat, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, and other products.
