The embargo is to come into effect in a few weeks to allow retailers to find alternative suppliers, the official said. “Talks are ongoing about two basic groups. The first group consists of vegetables, including tomatoes and other vegetables. And the second group is fruit."
According to previous reports, the government issued a less severe variant of the restrictions issued against Turkey due to concerns regarding the difficulties in the market situation ahead of the holidays. As Vedomosti reported, citing a senior official as the source, authorities stopped short of an embargo and instead opted for partial restrictions.
