BYKOVO, May 25. /TASS/. Turkish products will be supplied to the Russian market immediately after the politically motivated trade restrictions are lifted, head of Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) Sergei Dankvert said Thursday.

"The (Turkish) government will open (the items) not covered by the sanctions," he said, adding that the remaining items subject to claims will be negotiated.

Thus, after the political restrictions on Turkey’s supplies of agriculture products are lifted, tomatoes will remain under sanctions.

On May 3, 2017, presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed to cancel a range of restrictive measures on almost all positions, excluding tomatoes.

Russia banned imports of bell pepper, pomegranates, aubergines, lettuce, Iceberg lettuce, marrows and pumpkins from Turkey due to phytosanitary considerations in the spring of 2016. Prior to that Russia restricted imports of oranges, tangerines, grapes, apples, pears, apricots, peaches and nectarines, plums, wild strawberries, strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, yellow onions, as well as frozen turkey and chicken from Turkey starting January 1, according to the government decree on implementation of presidential decree on special economic measures against Turkey.

In October 2016, the Russian government approved the resolution allowing Turkey to supply mandarins, oranges, peaches and nectarines, apricots and plums to Russia.

Thus, after the political restrictions on Turkey’s supplies of agriculture products are lifted, tomatoes will remain under sanctions.
