Russian Boycott Stops Dutch Trucks

In the past two days, seventy to eighty trucks with Dutch vegetables and fruit have been turned back at the Russian border, due to that country’s boycott of these products from the EU. Another 70-80 trucks did not even depart. This was said by Gert Mulder of the professional organization GroentenFruitHuis. He could not yet estimate the damage but it will be major, the more so as the boycott is meant to last for a year. Mulder also remarked that about ten Dutch exporters only sell to Russia and now have no business left.
