Russia to Create Green Corridor for Israeli Agricultural Products

Russia will launch a “green corridor” to simplify the supply of agricultural products from Israel, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at an international conference of the Keren Hayesod Foundation.

“Bilateral cooperation in the agricultural sector is also of great importance. Currently, work is underway to launch the so-called ‘green corridor’ to simplify the supply of Israeli agricultural products to the Russian market,” the president said.

According to the FCS, food products and agricultural raw materials account for 35.99% of Russia’s total imports from Israel. Of these, vegetables and tubers were imported for a total of $177.7 million, and fruits, nuts, citrus fruit peel or melons for $53.4 million.
