Russia has lifted its import ban on Ecuadorian bananas, initially imposed after Ecuador's military deal with the United States (US) favoring Ukraine. The ban has now ended, allowing all Ecuadorian banana exports to Russia to resume. This resolution maintains the strong trade relations between the two nations, as Ecuador is a key banana supplier to Russia. This development follows diplomatic efforts amidst tensions over a military exchange agreement between Ecuador and the US.
