Russia will not see Germany's bratwurst for a while Reuters

Russia has retaliated to sanctions imposed on it by a justice league of global trading partners by banning imports of fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and dairy products from the US, EU, Australia, Canada and Norway.

In this instance Germany will be hit hardest, as it exported $1.83bn of food to Russia in 2013, according to Reuters. The Germany-Russia export losses will be closely followed by Poland's, which supplied the country with $1.55bn worth.

Russia imported $1.54bn from the United States last year; the Netherlands, France, Italy and Spain were the other high ranking suppliers.

Interestingly, cheese and curd make up the largest produc to be imported by Russia from the EU - $1.31bn worth of it. The $310m worth of meat that it buys from the US seems paltry in comparison.

Nuts are Russia's second biggest import from the US: $170m worth in 2013.
