Russia extended its ban on food products from the European Union up to 31 December 2020

26 June 2019 Current Affairs: Russian president Vladimir Putin has signed for extending Moscow’s Embargo on food products from European Union (EU) upto 31 December 2020. This is due to Russia's retaliation against sanctions over Ukraine. The decree prohibits a number of imports from various countries for one year which includes agricultural products, raw materials and other food items.
Russia primarily targeted their restrictions on finance, energy and defence sectors of Russian economy. Russian economy is affected by pushing up the food products.
