EU to extend safety net measures for agricultural producers in light of Russian food embargo into 2016 – European Commission
The European Union's safety net measures in response to Russia's embargo on agricultural imports from EU countries will be extended into 2016 for the European dairy, fruit and vegetable sectors, European Commission spokesperson Mina Andreeva has announced.
Today the European Commission is extending these measures for fruit and vegetables starting from next week, she told a press briefing in Brussels on Thursday.
As far as dairy products are concerned, this will happen on October 1 in order to avoid all problems, she said.
In both cases, these measures will be extended into next year, Andreeva said.
