Russia plans to target 6 countries with food embargo
It would cover Ukraine and EU countries supporting sanctions
The Russian government is discussing the expansion of the food embargo on the six countries, which supported extension of the sanctions. This was stated by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkadiy Dvorkovich, as reported by DW.
"Our fundamental approach means that everyone who applied sanctions against us, faced with the corresponding responses of the food embargo," he said.
August 4, Prime Minister Dmitriy Medvedev initiated work on expanding the list of countries covered by food embargo. The first states from those "lucky" list are Ukraine, Georgia, Montenegro, Albania, Iceland and Liechtenstein.
As was reported before, sanctions were approved by EU countries, U.S., and other countries. Russia applied sanctions in response by shutting its borders to EU, U.S., Norway, Australia, and Canada food imports. It triggered Russian ruble collapse and the 2014–15 financial crisis. According to the last estimates, Russia faced with the total losses estimated as €100 bln.
