Johnson said in response to the question of the congressman who expressed concern about the anti Russian sanctions:”I think it is very important to appeal to our institutions that supply fish and chips not only to use Russian fish and chips.”
White fish is in high demand all over the world, and most of the supply is carried out in accordance with the signed contract. About 40%of COD and sea bass are supplied by Russia, but Britain has increased the tariff on white fish imported from Russia by 35%, which makes supply difficult and expensive. As a result, about a third of the institutions specializing in this kind of cuisine are threatened with closure.
Previously, it was reported that the leadership of the trade union organization of the British”National Association of fish sellers” planned to ask Norwegian fish suppliers for help to curb the price rise caused by British sanctions against Russia.
