EU to extend relief for farmers hit by Russia sanctions

Farmers of the National Federation of Agricultural Holders Unions and the Young Farmers association inspect the origins of fruit and vegetables in a wholesale market on July 30, 2015 in AvignonThe EU said Thursday it will extend until next year a multi-million euro aid package to help struggling European farmers hit by Russian sanctions over the Ukraine crisis. The European Commission, the executive arm of the 28-nation European Union, said it was finalising details after Russian President Vladimir Putin last month extended a ban against most Western food imports for a year, a move in retaliation for EU and US sanctions against Moscow. Farmers in France, Belgium and Germany have staged protests against falling prices, especially for milk and dairy products, following both the Russian ban and a slowdown in the Chinese market.
