Russia to increase imports from Brazil to make up for products from the USA and EU
The government of Vladimir Putin is in talks with a Brazilian delegation to immediately increase exports of agricultural goods to the Russian market, after the Kremlin announced that as of August 7 sanctions against the United States, Europe, Australia, Canada and Norway will apply.
The list was published on the morning of Thursday, August 7, in Moscow by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Brazil, which has not condemned Moscow for its actions in Ukraine, is not on the list and will see its exports increase significantly.
On the same day, Russia's agricultural authority, Rosselkhoznadzor, announced that it has begun consultations with Latin American governments to expand supply.
The list of banned products includes beef, pork and chicken (fresh and frozen), smoked and cured meats, fish, milk and dairy products, vegetables, fruits, nuts, sausages and cheeses.
