What about the farm equipment made in Germany and the EU?
And the other agricultural products...I.e. food, grain, fertilizer, etc?
Russians might have to wait in line for beets and potatoes again, but Putin wins this hand.
All agricultural goods produced in the US and imported into Russia will be halted for one year, the assistant to the head of Rosselkhoznadzor,
Aleksey Alekseyenko, told RIA Novosti.

Russia's move to limit agricultural trade is seen as a sign the conflict with Washington is heating up. Russia imported about $1.3 billion in U.S.
food and agricultural products last year, or about 11 percent of all U.S. exports to the country, according to U.S. Census data.
The full eleven percent? That might sting a little. A ban that large would not benefit either country.
