Sanctions have hit Turkish food exporters real hard: the export of agricultural products fell by 88 percent last month compared to January 2015, according to the Turkish newspaper.
The situation is so dire that the Turkish agricultural sector might be on the verge of full bankruptcy without the government's support.
"If the government fails to extend a helping hand, the sector can bankrupt in all segments — from producers to exporters," the newspaper said.
The list of products Turkey is no longer allowed to sell to Russia includes frozen chicken and turkey parts, fresh and frozen tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, peppers, oranges and tangerines, apricots and strawberries.
With the full set of Russian sanctions against Turkey in place, the country's exports will keep going down even faster.
