Putin specified that this refers to the stone fruits and citrus. According to him, "for Turkish partners, the opening of the Russia’s market is natural." Putin emphasized that the decision to import Turkish fruits is very important, the AA news agency reports.

“Russian agriculture does not produce such products, and the entry of Turkish ones to the market may lead - and we are looking forward to it - to lower prices for these products,” Russian President said.

Earlier, the Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation Alexei Ulyukayev said that Russia may lift its ban on the import of certain vegetables and fruit, but this will be done in stages, until the end of 2016.
