    More than 30 tons of EU sanctioned goods were prevented from import to the Russian territory in the period from 2015 to 2016, Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — More than 30 tons of EU sanctioned goods were prevented from import to the Russian territory in the period from 2015 to 2016, Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika said Thursday.

    "Over 30 tons of such [sanctioned] goods were prevented from illicit transfer to Russia from EU member states," Chaika said Thursday at a joint meeting of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office and General Prosecutor’s Office of Belarus.

    In August 2014, in response to the Western restrictive measures, Moscow announced a one-year food embargo on products originating in states that imposed sanctions against it. The ban has since been prolonged.
