PARIS, August 21. /ITAR-TASS/. French vegetable producers have declared insufficient the support promised by the French government to compensate for the losses inflicted by the Russian embargo on food imports. Representatives of seven biggest trade unions of France released a joint statement on Wednesday.
The Russian embargo, above all, has hit producers of perishable products - vegetables and fruit. Funds worth €125 million promised by the European Commission to support the affected agricultural producers have been assessed as insufficient, the agricultural producers said in an open letter.
They declared that they intend to continue a dialogue on the problem with French President Francois Hollande and Agriculture Minister Stephane Le Foll.
