Russia, which has been destroying brie and other banned Western foods, may have to rev up the bulldozers again to keep pace with a growing list of prohibited imports.
On Thursday, Moscow added more items to the list of banned food and agriculture products from the five counties that support Western sanctions on Russia over its involvement in the crisis in Ukraine: Albania, Montenegro, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Ukraine.
The embargoed products include meat, fish, milk and dairy products, fresh fruit and vegetables and other raw produce.
“Everyone who applies sanctions against us must face the appropriate responses, food embargo,” Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters in Moscow.
