On Monday, Remigijus Motuzas, First Deputy Chancellor of the Government, and Evaldas Gustas, Minister of Economy who is standing in for the prime minister, will hold consultations with representatives of concerned institutions on restrictions to import raw materials, agricultural and food products imposed by Russia.
The Russian government’s announcement of sanctions on some food stuffs imported from the EU, Norway, USA, Canada and Australia will hit some countries harder than others. Yet the impact on the Russian economy may be even more significant.
After Russia banned food imports from the EU, trucks with cargo which had left for Moscow before the ban were told to return to Lithuania. This was reported on Saturday by Lithuanian road carriers association Linava.
