Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova replied that Russia has many products that could replace French products.

At the same time, she warned that in the event of further similar statements, representatives of French business will besiege Paris City Hall, just like the farmers before them.

The International Olympic Committee has decided that Russian and Belarusian representatives will be able to participate in the Olympic Games with the status of neutral athletes.
