Agriculture minister Marian Jurečka has urged Czechs to make an effort to purchase locally grown produce to combat the impact of Russian sanctions. On Thursday, Moscow announced a ban on fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy products from the EU to last for one year in retaliation for sanctions imposed by Russia over its alleged involvement in the Ukraine conflict. In making his appeal, Jurečka also added that Russia "must not step on the principles of freedom and democracy on which European society is based."
