One of Russia’s largest fish processing companies, Murmansk Fish Combinat has had to shut down because of lack of raw materials due to the ban on import of fish from Norway. The company threatens to sue the government if problems aren’t solved.

“Work has been discontinued, as shipments of live fish from Norwegian vessels stopped due to the sanctions,” the company’s manager Mikhail Zub said to ITAR-TASS. “We have written a letter to the Prime Minister, but have still not received any answer.”

“If the problem is not solved soon, we will have to file a lawsuit against the Russian Government,” he said.
