If Russia doesn’t want European produce, they’re nuts.

Meat, milk and dairy products, fish, fruits and vegetables from the United States and the European Union are banned from Russia for one year, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday.

Russia announced a day earlier it would ban or limit food and agricultural goods imported from countries that have sanctioned Russia over the crisis in Ukraine.

“Until the last moment, we hoped that our foreign colleagues would understand that sanctions lead to a deadlock and no one needs them,” Medvedev said Thursday, according to The Associated Press. “But they didn’t, and the situation now requires us to take retaliatory measures.”

Russia said it would instead import goods from Turkey, Latin America and former Soviet nations.

I notice, however, that they didn’t place a ban on the importation of European wine. That would have caused a revolution.
