Commenting article: Russian President Signs Decree Introducing Sanctions Against Turkey

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed on Saturday a decree introducing a set of economic sanctions against Turkey.

The sanctions come in response to the downing of the Russian Su-24 warplane by Turkish F-16 fighter jets on the Turkish-Syrian border on Tuesday.

The decree foresees bans on or restrictive measures against imports of certain goods originating from Turkey in line with the register approved by the Russian government.

I wonder if Dictator Putin the Great has recalled all of the Russian national gangsters and prostitutes from Istanbul and the rest of Turkey yet, or will there be repercussions for them too?

Ooh, this damned dictator Putin is so powerful that he managed to chuck out of Balkans the prostitutes of ALL nationalities and he dispersed them among many many countries.........including, say, Oz ;)

These sanctions will, again, hit only Russian population. After the introduction of counter-sanctions by Russia in 2014, the EU exports of foodstuffs rose by 7% instead of declining as Putin expected. Looks like getting a knout brings pleasure - to those who like it, of course.

"These sanctions will, again, hit only Russian population. After the introduction of counter-sanctions by Russia in 2014, the EU exports of foodstuffs rose by 7%" -------- with the sincere respect to these 7% of rising export (not to Russia, right?;), and the endless respect to the USA/EU sanctions against Russia, I'd like to add that Russian population don't feel the above horrifying "hit", alas ;), but feel the rise of food supplies from just Russian manufacturers. Every cloud has a silver lining......
And about a "knout": Сhoking on the own - utmost perfect, sure ;) - Polish apples, isn't it just esthetic pleasure...for the authentic Poles, of course? ;)

If the market gets closed for the import, the local companies take the opportunity. Less competition means lower quality and higher prices. It works the same everywhere, also in Russia.

To the "famous" apples - last year at the supermarkets they were really cheap here, at about 2 PLN (equalling 1 Lv) per kilo, but now they cost more than twice as much, this is the same as they did cost before the Russian embargo. China and India are buying them out. Producers are happy, consumers not so much :)
