Russia has banned meat, fish, dairy, fruits, and vegetable imports from the United States, European Union, Canada, Norway, and Australia.

This move is Russia’s way of  retaliating against countries that imposed sanctions on Moscow for the country’s support of the annexation of Crimea and rebels in eastern Ukraine, Reuters reports. 

Approved by Russian president, Vladimir Putin, the ban starts today, August 7th, and will last for one year.

    Mmmmmm these men should please settle their disputes. EU on her own should somehow be more diplomatic when dealing with Russia cause Russia is her 4th largest market and her sole supplier of gas. BN you missed one. Russia has also banned Euro airlines from flying over Serbia to Asia and if am right this sanction will raise up to a billion dollars for Russia in 3 months

    Whose citizens go hungry. If they produced enough, they wouldn’t be importing food anyway. I guess he has forgotten the long food lines.

    W.T.O and the EU need to take this up immediately, banning imports of food cannot/should not be used as a weapon of retaliation, it is so hitler-ish and wrong and against food trade ethics. what on earth is wrong with Vladimir Putin, is he well at all??! such katikati
