In his opinion, Russia's economy and agriculture would not suffer the lose of Ukraine as a supplier because it not supply a unique range of food products. Additionally Emelyanov said that Russia's next move would be more akin to applying supply restrictions, rather than an “embargo”.
The official pointed to decisions recently made in Kiev for Russia's intention to initate supply restrictions against Ukraine as early as January 1, 2016.
On the other hand, restrictions on supplies may assist domestic farmers and food processing companies. A people's survey suggests that both countries produce roughly the same range of food products, one of the differences being that Ukraine does not produce its own ham.
Previous reports surrounding the considerations of the Russian government pertaining to the possible inclusion of Ukraine under certain restrictions on food products to its eastern neighbor are “Russian Government Confirms Intention To Embargo Ukrainian Food Products” and “Russia's Embargo To Include Ukraine For Supporting EU's Sanctions”.
