Lithuanian agriculture minister calls for extraordinary EU ministers meeting

DELFI / Šarūnas Mažeika

In the address Lithuania expresses its concern about the ban on imports of the basic European agricultural products.

According to preliminary estimates, Lithuanian dairy, meat, fruit and vegetable companies will sustain losses amounting to LTL 160 million (EUR 46.3 million) due to the sanctions imposed by the Russian Federation.

“I firmly believe that we have to take common actions and to find the best solution to deal with Russia‘s countermeasures,” says Minister Baltraitienė.

On 7 August, Moscow announced a one-year-long embargo on most food products imported from the United States, the European Union and other Western countries that supported sanctions against Russia.
