Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told a government meeting on Thursday that Russia will ban fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, milk and dairy imports from the United States, the European Union, Australia, Canada and Norway. The decision follows a decree signed by President Vladimir Putin, ordering the government to ban or limit food imports from countries that imposed sanctions on Moscow for its support of rebels in eastern Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea.
