Question for written answer E-010944-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Ramon Tremosa i Balcells (ALDE)

 Subject:  Measures to alleviate the effects of the Russian embargo
 Answer in writing 

On 7 August 2014, the Russian Federation imposed a one‐year embargo on certain agricultural products from the European Union. The embargo has had a devastating effect on the fruit and vegetable market within the Community, with some items such as apples still suffering the consequences. The Commission responded by introducing exceptional withdrawal measures under Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1031/2014 and increasing quotas and products for withdrawal, followed by the introduction of Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1371/2014, which is soon due to expire. The recent announcement that the embargo is to be extended for a further year could once again cause severe disruption to the market.

1. Will the Commission keep the exceptional measures in place for the duration of the Russian embargo, and increase the withdrawal quotas for products that have run out?

2. Will the Commission immediately incorporate summer fruit (peaches and nectarines) as eligible products for withdrawal?
