However, imports of various types of fruits and vegetables from member states of the Customs Union increased by six times compared to imports in 2014. According to Sverdlovsk customs representatives, the coordination between Russia and other member states were able to successfully offset the decreased shipments from now-banned suppliers caused by the food embargo.
The leading exporters to the Sverdlovsk market are still Serbia and China.
Customs officers also noted increased occurrences of banned Turkish mandarins as Moroccan fruit, but similar infractions have not been identified in the Sverdlovsk Oblast.
