Trade War Intensifies as Russia Bans Import of U.S. Food

by Kurt Nimmo, Infowars:

On Thursday Russia responded to sanctions by imposing a total ban on certain food products from the United States.

“Fulfilling the presidential order, I’ve signed a government decree. Russia imposes a total ban on deliveries of beef, pork, fruit, vegetables, poultry, fish, cheese, milk and dairy products,”said Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev during the opening of a weekly government session.

Trade between the United States and Russia has more than tripled over the last decade. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, meat from the United States represented 19% of trade between the two countries. Russia is one of the largest export markets for chicken, with 39% of total US chicken exports going to Russia in 2008.

    I guess now that Rusiia isn’t buying our huge surplus of those foods you listed, prices of that stuff should plunge now that there is no market over there.
    if there is too much production here for Russia’s sake, then the market will have to sell cheaper to get rid of it. No?

    More oranges and more pineapples.

    To grow a pineapple, twist the top off, peel off the layers around the roots, plant in good soil (indoors), keep it moist and give it love.

    These sanctions are getting nuttier by the day it seems.

    Putin has already forbid GMO frankenfoods from entering Russia before the Ukraine dust up. Even as crazy as China is with all of their toxic foods record, they too have already refused USSA’s GMO crap.

    Maybe USSA should sanction itself of their own toxic foods, just sayin’…
