Which products and why Russia decided to refuse the import

Aug.08, 2014

It is a little bit unclear why many people in Russia are too worry about sanctions regarding the import food products from abroad namely EU, USA and  some CIS countries. In the general range of Russian foreign goods supermarkets account for only 35-40%, with two-thirds of them is in non-food products. We live in a world where most of food products are easily replaceable.
For example, the Australian beef restaurateurs easily replaced by products from Uruguay and Paraguay.
