Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree Wednesday banning for a year imports of agricultural and food products from countries that imposed sanctions on Russia.
The European Union, the United States, Canada and Japan have compiled sanctions lists against Russian companies, banks, politicians, freezing their bank accounts, banning them entry and refusing to buy Russian goods. The move has been linked to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
Since March, the European Union has imposed a total of nine rounds of sanctions, with two of them against the former Ukrainian leadership and seven against Russia. Washington has adopted a total of six rounds of anti-Russian sanctions.
The government is expected to announce the complete “black lists” of imports on Thursday. In the list of Russia’s major imports from the countries that imposed sanctions against Moscow is Spain and among main goods imported from Spain list includes olives and olive oil.
