The Latvian government has approved a list of goods from the terrorist countries of Russia and Belarus that are subject to an import ban. The ban will apply to potatoes, tomatoes, various types of onions, garlic, cabbage, lettuce, carrots, turnips and turnips, beets, oat roots, radishes, root vegetables, cucumbers and gherkins, legumes and other vegetables.

These restrictions were developed by the Ministry of Agriculture (ZM). This is stated in the article by Jauns.

Similarly, nuts, bananas, dates, figs, pineapples, avocados, citrus fruits, melons, pears, quinces, apricots, cherries, peaches, plums, blueberries will not be allowed to be imported into Latvia from Russia and Belarus. The ban also applies to frozen, canned, and dried fruit and nut products.

Wheat and mixtures of wheat and rye, rye, barley, oats, corn, rice, grain sorghum, and buckwheat cannot be imported from Russia and Belarus to Latvia.

The ban also applies to flour and pellets made from meat or meat by-products, fish or crustaceans, mollusks or other aquatic invertebrates, bran, residues of starch production and similar residues, sugar cane pomace and other sugar production waste, sediment or drops, and oil pomace.

From now on, grape seed, materials of plant origin and plant waste, residues, by-products and products used for animal feed will not be allowed to be imported from Russia and Belarus. Compared to the original list of goods subject to the import ban, which was published on the website of the Ministry of Justice last week, the section that was intended to ban the import of oilseeds and fruits of Russian and Belarusian origin to Latvia, as well as industrial plants, straw and fodder, has been removed.

For example, it was originally planned to ban imports to Latvia of plants or parts of plants originating in Russia and Belarus, which are used mainly in perfumery, pharmaceuticals or for the preparation of insecticides and fungicides, etc., carob pods, seaweed and other algae, sugar beets and sugar cane, fruit pits and kernels.

The list also excludes straw and husks of grain crops, fodder stalks, fodder beets, root crops, hay, alfalfa, clover, seed asparagus, fodder cabbage and similar fodder products.

As previously reported by OBOZ.UA, despite the sanctions imposed on Russia, the mining and metallurgical complex of the Russian Federation continues to receive significant profits from exports to the European Union. In 2023, the EU imported €2.4 billion worth of steel products from Russia. Although the figures are down from 2022, when exports amounted to €3.87 billion, supplies are still high.
