BRUSSELS, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. European Parliament President Martin Schulz on Monday supported the European Commission’s extraordinary measures to support the agricultural producers, affected by Russia’s food import embargo.

“I support measures announced today by the EU Commission to protect EU farmers from Russia sanctions. Together, we can withstand them,” Schulz said.

The EU Commission said earlier on Monday EU farmers would get financial help of up to €125 million to help them cope with the impact of Russia’s ban on most Western food imports, which has created a glut of fruit and vegetables in peak harvest time. Russia has declared a one-year embargo on meat, fish, dairy, fruit and vegetables from the United States, the European Union, Canada, Australia and Norway in retaliation for Western economic sanctions over Moscow's actions in Ukraine.
