BRUSSELS, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Experts of the 28 EU member-states will hold a meeting to discuss the situation on the European agrarian market on August 22, a source in European institutions told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
“The experts will discuss the developments on the European agrarian market after Russia imposed restrictions on European agricultural imports,” the source said.
He confirmed that the European agrarians “have already sustained serious loses,” but, he added, “the damage cannot be called catastrophic,” and the European commission intends “to exert every effort to minimize it".
On August 7, Russia announced the total ban on the imports of beef, pork, fruit and vegetables, poultry meat, fish cheeses, milk and dairy products from the European Union countries, Australia, Canada, Norway and the United States. This decision was made in response to the West’s sanctions against Russia over the developments in Ukraine.
