Reacting to retaliatory sanctions announced by Moscow on Thursday, Jan Veleba, former head of the Czech Agrarian Chamber, and currently a serving Senator, said that it may lead to lower domestic fruit and vegetable prices. He noted that given Russia's ban on importing EU fruits and vegetables, major producers such as Germany and Poland will likely flood nearby countries such as the Czech Republic with their now surplus produce. Similar sentiments have also been expressed by Czech Minister of Agriculture Marian Jurečka, with fears expressed over lower prices hitting domestic producers.
