Turkey exporting to Russia en masse

Turkey is filling in the shortage of food in Russia, reports the website deutsche-wirtschafts-nachrichten.de. In the first nine months of this year Turkish producers exported 53 per cent of their vegetables to Russia. This shows that Turkey isn't bothering about the EU guidelines. Before this Brussels warned all young industry countries of the fruit and vegetable export to Russia. But Turkey feels strong enough to step over the regulations from Brussels due to the Syria crisis.

Compared to the first nine months of last year the export of fresh vegetable to Russia increased by 30% and reached 413,602 tonnes. The export earnings from export to Russia increased by 9% to 292 million American dollars (228.8 million Euro). This makes Russia the main Turkish sales market for vegetables. It is followed by Bulgaria, Germany, the Ukraine and Romania.
