Russian authorities seized almost 2000 tons of meat, dairy products, vegetables and fruit with a total value of 138.7 million rubles (€1.6 million). Over 1800 tons of products were destroyed.

The destruction of goods included in the embargo list takes place, according to a separate and more recent decree by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Russian customs service announced yesterday the countries it had detained the most goods from that were included on the embargo list. Belarus and Lithuania were followed by Ukraine (39), Kazakhstan (28), Latvia (26), Finland (22), and Estonia (18).
