There has been strong interest from the sectors concerned, but the scheme has to be closed due to a disproportionate surge in claims – for example where the figures submitted for some products are several times higher than the total EU average annual exports to Russia.

European farmers seeking to bypass Russian bans with "Made in Turkey"- ("Made in FYROM") tags

European food producers are reportedly seeking to bypass Moscow’s ban on western food imports by deceiving authorities over the origin of the products with tags claiming the food is produced in countries that are not banned, including Turkey.

“Some EU countries have started sending their products to Belarus without specifying the real country of their origin. They write, for example – FYROM***, but we have found that it is Poland and Greece, as the FYROM origin was not confirmed,” Russian news agency Itar-Tass quoted Sergei Dankvert, head of Russia’s food safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor, as saying.

Russian food ban takes huge bite out of Greek fruit growing industry

Greek farmers say the Russian food embargo has already dealt a devastating blow to the country's agricultural economy, leaving at least 3.5 million kilogrammes of peaches rotting in refrigerated trucks after being turned back at the Russian border.
"There are around 3.5 million kilos of peaches currently rotting in trucks, and at the height of the summer another 3.5 million kilos have yet to be harvested," the Guardian quotes Apostolos Keranis head of the Federation of Greek truckers. "We're talking about huge, huge damage."
Russia buys more than 60 percent of Greek peach exports, and almost 90 percent of strawberries, says Christos Yannakakis, the president of Greece's largest regional association of growers and cooperatives.
