Russian Food Ban Might Not End in August

Reuters News Service  is reporting Russia could extend its ban of Western foods, including dairy products, beyond August 7, when they were scheduled to end.

The European Union is now saying it might end its own sanctions of Russia until the Ukraine peace deal is fully implemented at the end of 2015.

Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters on Wednesday that he hopes additional funds will be directed toward Russian agriculture so that it could be self sufficient in meat, fruit and vegetables by 2020, and self sufficient in milk production by 2025 at the latest.
