Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday that Russia is imposing a ban on food imports from the European Union (EU) and the United States in retaliation for their sanctions against Moscow over the Ukraine crisis.
The Russian government imposed a one-year ban on imports of beef, pork, poultry, fish, cheeses, fruit, vegetables and dairy products from Australia, Canada, the EU, the United States and Norway, the Itar-Tass news agency quoted Medvedev as saying.
However, the new sanctions will not affect commodities that Russian citizens purchase abroad for personal use.
"All these measures will not affect baby food and commodities that people buy in these countries (affected by sanctions) for personal use," according to Medvedev.

The Russians did not ask for sanctions, they were imposed on them. After so many provocations they have been forced to retaliate. But they must have foreseen this, hence Putin's visit to Latin America. Some EU countries will be affected badly by this. Even Germany is teetering on recession.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.
