Answer given by Mr Hogan on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: P-010795/2015

The prolongation for one year (until August 2016) of the Russian ban on EU fruit and vegetables and other foodstuff raise concerns about market disturbances, due to decreasing prices, and consequent economic difficulties particularly in fruit & vegetables, milk, sugar and pigmeat sectors.

The exceptional support measures for producers of certain fruit and vegetables, including the peaches and nectarines(1), have been extended as from 8 August and will run until 30 June 2016.
