Website reported an official list was approved by the government on Nov. 30, naming oranges, mandarins, grapes, apples, pears, apricots, peaches, plums, strawberries, tomatoes, onions, cauliflower and cucumbers.

These products will be banned for import into Russia from Jan. 1, 2016, under Russian Government regulation #1296.

Despite the wide-ranging nature of the ban, some major Turkish products not on the list include lemons, grapefruit, cherries, and tree nuts like hazelnuts and pistachios.

The produce import ban is part of extensive sanctions Russia is imposing on Turkey after the Mediterranean country shot down a Russian military plane on the Syrian border last week.
