German farmers lost 600 to 800 million euros because of the Russian food embargo.
Good relations between Russia and Germany must be revived in order to keep Russian export market.
German farmers are the ones who suffered the most because of this embargo.
Because the Russian export market was one of the most important, the consequences of the embargo are big and serious.
Russia decided to start embargo in order to answer to Western sanctions. This is why Russia banned imports of agricultural products from the EU.
The numbers show that export of milk to Russia in August 2014 fell from 125 million to 8 million euros, the export of meat products decreased from 175 million to 5 million euros and the export of fruits and vegetables fell from 7 million to 50 thousand euros.
