Russia can say goodbye forever to Latvian sprats

Latvian Ambassador to Russia Maris Riekstins decided to intimidate the Russian consumer by the fact that even if the embargo is lifted, Latvian producers are unlikely to resume supplies.




It is this impression that arises after the statement of the Latvian diplomat, which is reported Interfax.

According to Riekstins, after Russia closed access to its market for Latvian producers in 2015, small enterprises closed (read - went bankrupt), and large ones developed other markets.

And, if now Moscow will lift the ban, then Latvian sprats will fall into Russia "on the residual principle." The ambassador expressed confidence that the Latvian business considers the risks in this sector high, and is unlikely to return to the shelves of Russian stores in full.

Reading the statement of the Latvian ambassador, the feeling of "deja vu" does not leave: somewhere it already happened.

Specifically, it’s worth going back a dozen years when, several years after the Russian ban on the import of wines from Georgia, which was introduced in 2006, Georgian winemakers talked about how they successfully develop international markets.

However, after the ban was lifted seven years later, Georgians filled the shelves of Russian stores with space speed with their wine and no longer stuttered about the “new” markets.

It is easy to assume that if the ban on the import of Baltic sprats is lifted, they will appear in Russia in such numbers as if they had not disappeared.

    Ever since the 90s, when large-scale oppression of Russians began in the Baltic limtrophs, my family and I boycotted any Baltic goods and products, including their sprats, which are enough on Ukrainian shelves!
    In the same way, even after the first Zapadensky Russophobic "Maidan" -2004, I ignore all Zapukrian products - I do not buy under any guise, just as I do not buy "Roshen" products!

    ... they probably don’t know that in Belarus they have been able to produce all this for a long time no worse than on the Baltic coast ... wink The brothers will provide us with sprats, and their own lobsters, and hamon from Mogilev ... laughing

      Well, here is just the case when we ourselves are all right. Kaliningrad sprats have already entered the market for a long time, and most recently, in the network, for the sake of curiosity, I took the bank, thinking that Kaliningrad ... Yeah, by. yes City of Ryazan, for a minute. fellow The address is famous, there a few years ago a fish processing plant was put on the site of the former market. It would seem: where is Ryazan, and where is the sea - but no, all the rules. Sprats were wonderful, I would say: nostalgic. Of course, such a product is not used permanently, but if so, at the call of the soul ... then always please from a domestic manufacturer. And no matter what the different "gourmets" say, the quality is no worse than the Labus ones. And "obesity", and size (standard), and oil, and smoking ... good And yes, the same benzopyrene, only native, domestic. wassat

        We must try sprats. wink
        Although it’s about the Belarusians that I’m not serious, but rather about how they deliver sanctions in the Russian Federation, successfully “producing” them in their own way. wink

        This does not happen - it means they are made of thawed fish (when frozen, the water turns into ice, expands and breaks the tissues). If I take canned fish, then it’s always “rolled up” on the Kuril Islands, to the extreme - Sakhalin / Vladivostok. Not agitation, but experience. Try and compare.

      Recently I got olives from there. :) In general, the Old Man is well done - he makes money, no matter what, like the "last dictator".

        Yes, and I’m thinking, there’s nothing to run into Belarusians ... Well, that is, it is possible, just for the look, neatly. repeat but in fact, Father and I will not be afraid of any sanctions or counter-sanctions in such a way. wink They can do everything that we can’t ... and the border - bye! Union State! laughing

      Perhaps it will be news for you, but in Russia for a long time the main supplier of seafood - Moscow.
      So, king prawns, flounder and salmon caviar, apparently, are well caught in the Moscow River.

    In Kaliningrad, 4 plants are already being driven by sprats and the 5th is being built on the way ... since 2020, quotas for catching herring, sprats, from which sprats are made, the EU cut the Baltic to 0, they will not have fish.

      In Kaliningrad, 4 factories are already driving sprats and the 5th is being built on the way.

      To tell the truth, your sprats suck. No better than the Baltic.
      My family and I do not buy the Baltic and, especially, yours.
      We prefer ours - Seaside.

      I advise everyone - fish from the Far East (Primorye, Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Khabarovsk Territory and Magadan Region).

        I have nothing against the Far Eastern fish. But, just in case, I’ll ask: did you try to measure with a radiometer? And then the Americans made a present for all of us, Fukushima. And what happens there is a dark matter. Rumors go the saddest. Japan is not the USSR, they could not quickly figure it out. And now it’s not clear what it will ultimately result in.

        A relative brought real jamon from Spain, specially brought it to try. I don’t know, maybe I'm retarded and don’t understand something, but I didn’t like it at all.

    I don’t know which sprats are ours and which are not ours. If earlier I opened a jar of sprats, then the smell spread throughout the house. Now only the name remains.
