After the ban was imposed on the various kinds of agricultural products by the Russian Federation, the European Commission has estimated that total loss equals € 5 billion because of the embargo.

      According to him, the Russian embargo has affected 4.2% of total exports of the European Union, which is slightly less than half of the total EU exports to Russia. EU exports to Russia 10% of its agricultural products. Embargo severely affected the sector of fruits and vegetables, as well as dairy products.
