She informed that during the exchange, scheduled for April 22, Russian importing companies will ratify their interest in importing Latin American products, especially coffee, rum, wine, dairy products, meat, tropical fruits and vegetables.
Mashkova assured that, in turn, Russian exporters are also willing to offer more products for the Latin American market.
However, she acknowledged that due to the international sanctions against Russia, new obstacles have appeared to start and continue business between both parties.
Regarding the possibility of pressure from the United States on Latin American countries and businessmen, Mashkova said that “there will be that for sure”.
