The Polish government will find it harder to obtain EU compensations for its fruit and vegetables producers after Russia extended its embargo on food products to all EU states, Poland's Agriculture Minister Marek Sawicki has said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree banning or limiting imports to Russia of "some agri produce, raw materials and food products from countries which have introduced or joined sanctions against the Russian Federation."

Sawicki asked about the level of compensations that the gov’t will apply to the European commission in connection with Russia's embargo imposed on Polish vegetables and fruit said: "One does not speak about prices before negotiations, first we speak of the quality of our products."

Sawicki will meet with EU Commissioner for Agriculture Dacian Ciolos on August 12.

According to Agriculture Ministry data Poland exported over 804 thousand tons of vegetables and fruit to Russia in 2013, worth EUR 336 million. The ministry said that losses that Poland may suffer in effect of Russia's food embargo could reach EUR 500 million.
