PM: Buy Latvian fish and dairy products to counter Russia sanctions

Latvian Prime Minister Laimdota Straujuma has urged residents to buy local dairy and fish products in an effort to counter a Russian embargo.

The PM's calls come after Russia turned away large quantities of canned sprats and powdered milk from crossing its border last week, citing quality deficiencies.

"Look for our products," Straujuma said in an interview with the Latvian Television show "Rita panorama".

Straujuma has canceled her holiday and returned to work to meet with sector organizations and ministers amid Russian sanctions. Straujuma plans to meet with firms affected by the sanctions today.

She will also meet with several sector ministers, as well as the Latvian Employers' Confederation, the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and agriculture and fisheries organizations.

However, a Latvian foreign ministry spokesperson last week said the ban on fish and dairy products may not be 'politically motivated.'
