Belarus and Kazakhstan, members of a Russian-led Customs Union, currently have no plans to back Russia's retaliatory embargo on EU.
“At present, Kazakhstan only imposes food embargoes against countries affected by animal diseases that pose danger for the nation's population or livestock”- Deputy Agriculture Minister Gulmira Isayeva said, the Inform.kz news site reports.
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko also refused to support Russia’s ban on food imports.
"If we need Polish apples - we buy them, but not for Russia, for the domestic market. If we need some German specialties - we also acquire them for domestic consumption," interfax.by reports the words of the Belarusian leader.
Last week, Moscow blacklisted food imports including dairy, meat, fruit and vegetables from the U.S., the European Union, Norway, Canada and Australia, all of which have imposed sanctions on Russia over its role in Ukrainian crisis.
