Russia has banned the importation of fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and diary imports from the United States, Australia, Canada, the European Union and Norway, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said.
The measures are part of a raft of counter-measures to be imposed after the targeted nations imposed sanctions on Russia over its role in the crisis in Ukraine.
The import ban begins today and will last for one year, he added.
