SOCHI, May 31. /TASS/. The Russian government is not considering expansion of the list of countries covered by the food embargo or a wider range of embargoed products, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Monday after the Sino-Russian energy cooperation commission meeting.

"[This is] not considered," the official said responding to a relevant question.

The Russian government is already preparing documents to extend the food embargo until 2017 year-end and will approach the Russian president with the relevant proposal.

"The embargo is currently effective until the end of August. I think these documents will be approved unless some miraculous changes occur in the geopolitics," Dvorkovich said.
