OREANDA-NEWS In Russia, restrictions may be imposed on the import of some non-food products, just as restrictions were once imposed on the import of cheeses, sausages and other products. The idea was expressed by State Secretary - Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Viktor Yevtukhov at the All-Russian Wine Forum.

The turnover of non-food products is estimated at 28 billion rubles per year, of which 20 billion rubles are imported.

"In order for these 20 billion to remain with us, we say that it is necessary to think about introducing restrictions, especially where we produce our products - from household chemicals to light industry products. Here, I think, restrictions will appear," the deputy minister said.

Russia imposed a food embargo in 2014, and it is being extended every year. It is prohibited to supply certain types of agricultural products, raw materials and food, the country of origin of which is the state that has decided to impose economic sanctions against Russian legal entities and (or) individuals. In particular, beef, pork, poultry, fish, seafood, cheeses, milk, fruits, vegetables and other products were banned.
