"We received information from the Ministry of Communications and from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that Belarus and Kazakhstan have not yet stopped our cargoes," Economy Minister Evaldas Gustas, who is also standing in for the prime minister, told the media after ministerial meeting on Monday.

As reported, on 7 August Russia enforced 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.
