Traditionally, Russia has been one of the main importers of Turkish citrus products. This is favored by the geographical proximity and friendly relations between the countries. In 2020, Russia got the leadership in this segment. Export of these products to Russia increased by 31%. This happened because of the pandemic, during which the demand for essential goods increased. The main volume is made up of tangerines, lemons and oranges. Traditionally, most of the volume fell on tangerines.
