'Dutch flower exports to Russia blooming'

Katya's Moscow flower business is blooming. 

Since there's no sanctions on exporting cut flowers from the EU to Russia, her team of drivers is busy delivering bouquets around the Russian capital. In fact, business is so good, she's about to fly off for another holiday in Dubai.
