This was announced today, July 4, RIA Novosti reports with reference to mutual trade data.

Russia bought 5.6 thousand tons of Turkish oranges, tangerines, grapefruits and lemons in May. But this is 2 times less than it was in the same month of 2023. Of these, there are only 77 tons of oranges.

The import of tangerines from Turkey decreased 6.5 times to 411 tons. Lemons — 3 times to 2.2 thousand tons. Moreover, lemons accounted for 40% of all Turkish fruit shipments to Russia in May.
