If the import of Turkish tomatoes in the off-season: winter, early spring when we have our own tomatoes. But we must not forget that we lack around 1.5 million tons of vegetables, and we have this huge amount we import today from Azerbaijan, Morocco, Uzbekistan, China, Israel etc., therefore, if Turkish tomatoes will be about 50 thousand, and we import about more than a million, of course it is neither cold nor hot, as they say", — said Tkachev channel "Russia 24".
