Russia extends import ban on Danish food products

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a new decree that extends the ban on imports of certain Western food products until the end of 2017.

The ban means that a number of Danish food industries, including the struggling pork sector, will continue to forego the huge Russian market for at least another 18 months.

The Russian ban came into effect in 2014 in response to the sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU and the US in connection with the annexation of Crimea that spring.
