Tajik farmers prosper from Russia sanctions

As Moscow seeks alternative foodstuffs due to Western sanctions over Ukraine, Tajiks take opportunity to fill the gap.

    Farmers in Tajikistan have been taking advantage of Russia's trade troubles with the West due to sanctions over Moscow's involvement in the Ukraine crisis.

    The farmers have been stepping in to fill the gap left in the market by sending more of their produce to Moscow.
