Delivery of products to Chukotka will not suffer from import restrictions

The Chukotopttorg state enterprise of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, which is the main supplier of food products to the region, has changed the plan of measures for the delivery of food this year in connection with the introduction by the Russian Federation of retaliatory economic sanctions against Western countries, within which the import of a number of goods from the United States is prohibited , European Union, Canada, Australia and Norway. According to the director of Chukotopttorg Viktor Mishchenko, this situation will not affect the total volume of products imported to the district, which is expected to be at the level of 10 thousand tons.

- In connection with the introduction of sanctions this year, we refused to import American products to Chukotka. 13 years in a row, Seattle carried the delivery of potatoes, onions, beets and apples. This time it was planned to bring 1,6 thousand tons of fruits and vegetables, - said Victor Mishchenko and stressed that at present the enterprise is negotiating with suppliers from China and several regions of Russia. Thus, there will be a reorientation of the market, however, the cost of goods in Chukotka will not increase from this.

According to the director of Chukotottorg, some dairy products, cheese, fish may disappear from the counters of shops in Chukotka, but a substitute will be found for each of these items, including goods produced in the district.

The Governor of the Chukotka Autonomous District Roman Kopin noted that the Okrug Government is working on a number of measures to reduce the dependence of the region on the products supplied during the northern delivery.
