Citrus exports hardest hit by Russian ban

CYPRUS agricultural exports to Russia reached €13.5 million in 2013, representing 61 per cent of total exports to the country, trade ministry data showed.

Total exports to Russia in 2013 reached €22.1 million, the Cyprus News Agency said, quoting the ministry.
The remainder of exports concerned mainly pharmaceutical products.

Cypriot agricultural exports to Russia are expected to be affected after Moscow this week put sanctions on food import from the EU in retaliation to EU sanctions on Russia.

Cyprus’ main food exports to Russia are citrus fruit worth about  €10.7 mln, fish worth €1.5 mln and vegetables worth about  €627,000 a year.
