The United States has eased the sanctions regime on imports of agricultural products from Russia, including allowing the supply of food, fertilizers and reproductive materials. This was announced by the U.S. Treasury.

According to the published document, in addition to agricultural products, medicines, medical equipment, spare parts and software necessary for its operation, as well as funds related to the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of a new coronavirus infection have also been withdrawn from restrictions.
