The vessel of Syrian and Russian entrepreneurs with 800 tons of goods sent to Novorossiysk. By December 15 citrus fruits should appear on the shelves of Moscow.
Entrepreneur Amjad Duba told about wholesale prices for Syrian agricultural products. According to him, "the price of oranges is 75 lire (about 13 rubles), tangerines - 55 lire (10 rubles), lemons - 100 lire (18 rubles), tomatoes - from 17 to 95 lire (from 3 to 17,5 rubles)" .
Duba noted that the main problem now is the transportation of goods. “Before the war, ships from the Syrian ports went directly to Novorossiysk, and now only once on 20 days a ship enters the port of Tartus and goes through several ports and reaches Novorossiysk via 35-40 days,” he said.
RSN also cites a source in the Ministry of Finance of Syria, who said that at present between Moscow and Damascus "negotiations are underway to introduce preferential customs, with zero duty for Syrian products."
