Moscow. January 23. Retaliatory Russian food sanctions have meant that Estonia should promptly find a new market for 35 tonnes of frozen herring, writes portal rus.err.ee.

“A big problem with frozen herring, as Russia was our main buyer of frozen herring, pay good money and consumed per year around 35 000 tonnes of this fish, and now this market is closed”, – said the head of the Estonian fishing Union Valdor of Noormagi.

According to him, now frozen Baltic herring is mainly on Ukraine, party less – in the Balkans and in Belarus.
