God Works in mysterious ways: Russia to replace boycotted European produce with produce from Israel
Due to tensions over the Ukraine, Russia is boycotting European produce and replacing it with produce from Israel (Hat Tip: Bare Naked Islam). Coincidence? I think not.
Due to the tension between Russia and Europe, and Russia’s decision to halt imports from Europe, Israel has been asked to increase exports of fruits, specifically apples and plums, said Porat.
“Unfortunately, the Russian market isn’t a big consumer of mangoes, so it can’t replace the declining demand from Europe,” said Porat.
Porat noted that lower European demand could be tied to an excess of produce there created by the Russian boycott, and not necessarily due to anti-Israel sentiments in Europe.Hmmm. And the Russians really should try the mangoes. Frozen, they make a great dessert.
