Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on November 27 in comments on Russia’s ban that Belarus would have to respond to the restrictions on meat and dairy product supplies, if trade between the two countries did not come to normal.
Lukashenko said “the behavior of the Russian authorities [the ban] does not simply surprise but causes grieve.”
Russia and Belarus subsequently agreed a return of four Belarusian meat suppliers to the Russian market, Belarus’ Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusy said after bilateral talks in Moscow on December 4.
