Russia lifts remaining restrictions on agricultural imports from Turkey

Some Turkish analysts assume that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who took umbrage at his US counterpart Donald Trump, has decided to spite Washington by strengthening relations with Putin.

Russia lifted the remaining restrictions on imports of agricultural products, raw materials and food from Turkey in June. In addition, Russia lifted restrictions for charter flights to the country. 

In September, Russia resumed imports of pomegranates, peppers, lettuce, iceberg lettuce, squash and pumpkins from Turkey. To crown it all, during the meeting in Ankara, Putin promised to lift the restrictions on imports of Turkish tomatoes.
