Does this mean chicken prices might start to fall ?

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/08/06/us-ukraine-crisis-idUSKBN0G61K220140806


Moscow is by far the biggest buyer of European fruit and vegetables and the second biggest importer of U.S. poultry.

Yeah, I saw this. Banning food imports (for non safety reasons) is just stupid. It hurts their own people more than us.

Edit: maybe that is the game plan, make your own people pissed off and hungry, blame the US through some effective propaganda campaign, war, profit

Super cheap chicken? May need to buy a deep freezer...

Ivan can't help but act like a tard.

Banning the import of our food isn't going to hurt us much but it will sure hurt the Russian people, idiots.

I work for an agricultural company that exports a ton of equipment to the Ukraine and to Russia.

So far I am happy they haven't put sanctions on American equipment yet.

Seems like an odd choice for what to put sanctions on. I would think food would be pretty low on the list of ways to make another country hurt, seems like it could effect your own people more. But what do I know, I'm just a 14er.

In the end, I suspect the UN will ask Russia to enter Ukraine as a peacekeeping force.

Yep Thanks Vlad! Good for consumers in U.S. and the other countries we export to, but potentially very bad for farmers. The prices should fall initially. I think making room in the freezer will be a good idea. It may also relieve some of the demand for pork and beef and help with prices there as the substitute demand for cheaper poultry increases.

What does their domestic media have to say about this? Is the evening news there also talking about it, or are they talking about the recent embargo the West has implemented on the sale of foodstuffs to Russia that poor average Russians rely on?
Link Posted: 8/6/2014 12:34:08 PM EDT
Guess that means our prices will be dropping, fairly soon.

Rule #1 when controlling a people

Keep the outside threat seem bigger than the inside threat.

Perhaps this is to create animosity for the west among its people?
