Government mitigates the food embargo

On 22nd October 2016 it became known that the Russian Government again mitigated the food embargo. This time, turbot flounder fry, common bass fry and white-leg shrimp fry are released from the application of the ban on import. This decree of the Russian Federation Government has already been published on the legal information portal.

It should be noted that previously the food embargo was mitigated by eliminating salmon and trout fry from the list.

It will be recalled that in August of this year the food embargo imposed in 2014 was extended until 31st December 2017.
