Greece Wants Russia Ban Lifted

Athens asks Russia to partially lift its ban on imports of Greek strawberry, oranges and peaches, Alexei Alexeyenko, an aide to the chief of Russia’s veterinary and phytosantitary watchdog (Rosselkhoznadzor), told TASS after his meeting with Greek Deputy Minister of Agriculture Panagiotis Sgouridis. “Later, a Greek lawmaker addressed us with the same request. They ask to lift the ban on one or two items,” he said. According to Alexeyenko, Greece is worried most of all about the harvest of peaches, since this sector was created in Greece especially for the Russian market. Athens also asks to lift the ban on imports of strawberries, oranges and kiwifruit.
