Macedonian apples are the most affected by the Russian sanctions, the export of peaches and cherries also uncertain


Apples, peaches and cherries are the most affected by the ban on Macedonian fruit imports imposed by Russia. The ban entered into force at the end of last year 2022, and the authorities are intensively working on its abolition and hope that it will happen by spring.
According to Trajan Dimkovski from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management (MAFWM), we annually export about 15,000-20,000 tons of consumer apples to the Russian market, which is 50 percent of the total export, we market peaches for 60 percent of the total export, while cherry production in all goes to Russia. Alternative markets are hard to find for all three crops.
