At the moment, Russia has banned the supply on their territory only with a number of European companies, however, the detection of further violations could extend the ban to products throughout the EU.

The official explained that he sees two ways out of problems: either foreign (including U.S.) suppliers to create a register of enterprises involved in the supply of fodder in Russia (which they are not ready yet), or Russia bans the import of these products first from some EU countries and then from all the territory “and let them understand they are there”.
