The request was handed over as Russian ministers gathered Thursday to discuss the problems faced on the peninsula five months after Moscow annexed it from Ukraine, Crimean Agriculture Minister Nikolai Polyushkin said according to local media. “We requested that Crimea be excluded from the general economic sanctions that Russia has introduced given that we are in a transition period and that we are still like Siamese twins with mainland Ukraine, especially concerning milk and dairy products,” Polyushkin was quoted as saying by Russian news agency RIA-Novosti.
