Russia just announced a ban on food imports from the U.S., the European Union, Canada, Australia, and Norway.
The announcement was made by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow, reports Bloomberg’s Olga Tanas.
“There is nothing good in sanctions and it wasn’t an easy decision to take, but we had to do it,” said Medvedev.
In recent weeks, the U.S. and the E.U. introduced a series of economic sanctions against Russia for its involvement in destabilizing Ukraine. Sanctions were targeted at financial and energy firms.
