MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. The Russian Agriculture Ministry has sent its suggestions regarding the list of banned products for 7 countries that have imposed anti-Russia sanctions to the Government, a representative of the Ministry’s press service told TASS on Tuesday.
"The Agriculture Ministry has only studied the issue regarding the list of products. We haven’t studied the issue regarding the countries - it’s a question to the Central office of the Russian Government. We’ve sent our suggestions to the government," the representative said.
Earlier another source in the Ministry told TASS that the list of banned products is most likely to remain unchanged in case the list of countries is extended. At the same time, the source said, the list of products regarding Iceland may be extended if it does not include certain fish supplies though it’s unlikely.
Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said earlier that the question of extending the list of countries to face Russia’s counter-sanctions is being actively discussed in the Russian government.
"The question is being actively discussed. The attitudes imply that all using sanctions against us should accordingly face corresponding counter-moves, meaning food embargo," he said.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said last week that the list of the states facing Russia’s embargo may be extended. The statement was made after 7 countries - Montenegro, Albania, Iceland, Norway, Lichtenstein, Ukraine and Georgia - confirmed their decisions to prolong the regime of joining the European Union anti-Russia sanctions to the Council of EU.
