Russia strangles Europe with food embargo

Russia is responding to the latest decision of the European Union to prolong the sanctions against the country. President Putin signed a decree to extend the food embargo against European countries. Thus, members of the European Union will not be able to supply their food products to Russia for another year. 

The counter sanctions came into effect on June 24. According to Putin, the move will be motivating for Russian agricultural producers.
