MOSCOW, May 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The Federal Veterinarian and Phytosanitary Control Service may restrict the imports of plant products in the luggage of passengers arriving from Ukraine and Moldova.
The service has appealed to the Ukrainian and Moldovan national plant protection authorities expressing its serious concern over the imports of plants subject to quarantine.
Two hundred kilograms of pumpkin seeds, 100 kilograms of beans, 600 kilograms of wild leek, 3.3 tonnes of walnuts and 4,000 rose seedlings were found in passengers’ luggage at railroad stations in the Russian Bryansk region from January 1 through May 1, 2012. The service said such products belonged to the category of a high phytosanitary risk, but they were taken to Russia without proper certificates. Ukraine and Moldova have an unfavorable phytosanitary situation, the service remarked.
It requested the national plant protection and quarantine authorities to prevent the illegal imports and said that otherwise it would reserve the right to ensure phytosanitary security as regards the plants imported from Ukraine and Moldova without any control.
The service banned imports of plant products in the luggage of passengers arriving from Azerbaijan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan on April 16.
