“Unfortunately, over the past two years, the volume of goods in General between Russia and Ukraine was strongly reduced. Especially food. Now 11 times Ukrainian exports to Russia declined, what we have now is 200 million dollars value of food exports. It is clear that a macroeconomic level, it’s insignificant value. So I think for the economy, for consumers of Russia as a whole, will be almost unnoticed”, – he stressed.
