“We are ready to maintain working contacts with the control and supervisory services of Greece in order to let supplies resume without delays when the food sanctions are lifted,” Dankvert said at a meeting with the chief of the Greek embassy’s trading and economic department, Ilias Thanassas.

Dankvert emphasized the vast growth potential of Greek food supplies to Russia. According to his estimates, Greece’s ability to export dairy products alone may exceed the capabilities of the Baltic countries. Chilled aquaculture fish from Greece enjoyed great popularity with Russian customers, just as fresh vegetables and fruit. More than 90% of strawberries grown in Greece was meant for Russia.
