Crimea has begun exporting grain from the 2014 harvest to Saudi Arabia and Cyprus, Russian agricultural watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor announced.
“From July 23 we exported 22,648 tones of barley to Saudi Arabia and 4,603 tone to Cyprus”- reads the statement of Rosselkhoznadzor.
Earlier, Crimean Agricultural Ministry reported as of July 1 the grain crops made 306 thousand tones of barley and 334,3 thousand tones of wheat.
The export to Saudi Arabia and Cyprus comes as the European Union banned Crimean imports on June 23 as a part of the EU policy of non-recognition of Crimean annexation by Russia.
The ban also extends to the direct or indirect provision of financing or financial assistance, as well as insurance and reinsurance services related to these goods.
