WARSAW, August 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Europe and Russia do not want fuel market sanctions amid the Ukraine crisis, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on Wednesday.

“Quite the contrary, Russia and many Western European countries would like to exclude gas market from the discussion of sanctions,” he said.

Possible Russian oil and gas sanctions on the EU would first hit Russia, Tusk added.

Speaking of Russian ban on Polish fruit and vegetable imports, Prime Minister said losses in this season were “serious but no tragedy”, and most contracts had been already realized and paid for.

“We should think what to do in the future if the embargo lingers on,” Tusk said.

On August 1, Russian veterinary and phytosanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor banned almost all fruit and vegetable import from Poland, including apples, pears, cherry, sweet cherry, peaches, plums and cabbage as Poland violated certification requirements and quarantine pests have been detected.

Poland turned to European Commissioners for agriculture, healthcare and trade for help to overcome the ban’s consequences preliminarily estimated at about 500 million euros.
