In general, the share of the agricultural products embargoed by Russia amounts to only 1% of the general exports of agricultural products, which totaled $11.6 billion for the ten months. The other groups of the goods, exported from Ukraine to the Russian Federation, fall under the duties agreed at the WTO," the Minister said.
