Tkachev: Russia’s time to pay attention to the problems of products from Turkey


The head of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation Alexander Tkachev said that Russia should stop turning a blind eye to problems with quality Turkish products.

MOSCOW, 26 Nov. It is time for Russia to stop turning a blind eye to problems with quality Turkish product, said the head of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation Alexander Tkachev.

“Turkish products have never been known for quality. They (the cases of detection of defective products — ed.) were, were, were repeated. Today, when there was an act of aggression…, after all these events, based on the law on special economic measures I think we need to develop measures and tools that would enable us to indicate their position and a more thorough approach to inspections, analysis, and not to close my eyes to significant things,” said Tkachev in interview to TV channel “Russia 24”.

“Whoever hit us in the back, should feel a reaction, measures,” he added.
