Meat Import Quotas Set

The most drastic reduction of quotas on imported meat to Russia this year came for pork, according to a Cabinet decree.

The quota went down to 400,000 tons from 472,000 tons last year, said the decree published on Dec. 29.

The Cabinet also slightly reduced the quota for poultry imports to 330,000 tons from last year's 350,000 tons. The beef imports quota remained at 530,000 tons, but the U.S. share within the quota will rise by a third to 60,000 tons.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
