The study examines the impact of the MRL on Vietnam's agricultural exports in Russia. The empirical evidence is shown through an in-force model with data throughout the 2001-2019 period and is divided into eight specific categories of Vietnamese exports to Russia. The research model also controls factors to ensure the suitability of the model such as: the ability to meet the needs of domestic Russian agricultural products (domestic output), tariffs, and types of exports. The research results show that as expected, the MRL regulation is one of the important non-tariff barriers to restrict Vietnam's exports in Russia. The research also shows that exports of different agricultural commodities have a different effect, in particular coffee, tea, maté and spices are exchanged while fruit products; Citrus peels or melons are being exchanged for lower potencies under defined conditions.
