Russia Bans Ukrainian Juice Imports

Russia retaliated new U.S. and EU sanctions by prohibiting imports of juice from Ukraine, the second largest importer after China, from Wednesday, citing the absence of a certificate of their compliance with technical requirements, the consumer watchdog said in a statement Thursday.

According to PRIME reports, Moscow also slapped a ban on imports of any fruits and vegetables from Poland and Moldova and is considering banning on fruit imports from the Netherlands and said that it could extend the ban to the entire European Union.

Last year Russia banned imports of sweets from the Roshen factory belonging to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, saying a carcinogenic substance had been found in its chocolate.

Imports of meat and wine from Moldova, which has signed a free-trade and political cooperation agreement with the EU, have also been restricted.
