Crimea appealed to the Government of Russia to allow imports of Ukrainian products
The authorities of the Crimea appealed to the Government of Russia to allow the imports of Ukrainian agricultural products to the peninsula, declared Nikolai Polyushkin, Minister of Agriculture of the Crimea.
The Minister noted that due to the geographical position of the peninsula, to date the Crimea is not able to completely provide itself with milk and dairy products, sugar and sunflower oil. The major share of the products was previously imported from Ukraine.
Kuban has already begun supplying milk to the region, but due to transport logistics the supplied volumes can not completely satisfy the market, said N.Polyushkin.
The demand of Crimea for the remaining groups of food commodities is less connected with Ukraine, as the region has its own reserves or able to fill its needs from the supply of Russian products.
