Russia bans Polish fruit and vegetables amid sanctions war
The Russian authorities have introduced a sweeping ban on imports of fruit and vegetables from Poland, depriving it of a major export market.
Russia's food hygiene authorities said the imports had unacceptable levels of pesticide residues and nitrates.
They earn Poland more than 1bn euros (£795m; $1.3bn) annually. Russia is Poland's biggest market for apples.
The move follows EU sanctions against Russia over Ukraine. Poland has condemned Russian actions there.
