Breakaway Abkhazia Bars Importing Turkish Products

The de-facto Government of Georgia’s breakaway Abkhazia region has posed sanctions on importing some products from Turkey.

Russian media announced that the degree was issued by their so-called PM Artur Mikvabia.

The de-facto government’s press office has issued a statement announcing that the ban will apply to fish, fish flour, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, cabbage and cucumber.

“As for fruits, imports of citrus, grapes, melon and watermelon, apple, peach, papaya, etc. will be prohibited,” the statement read.

The so-called customs committee of Abkhazia emphasized that importing products that weighs less than 50 kilograms will not be restricted.

The de-facto region of Abkhazia has joined Russia in sanctions against Turkey last week as it was inevitable due to the ‘partnership treaty’ they signed with Russia.
