MOSCOW, November 2 (Itar-Tass) — Czech alcoholic beverages will return into the Russian market as Rospotrebnadzor lifts the ban on import, the consumer rights watchdog’s press service said on Friday.
“We have made a decision, and a document on it is being drafted now,” the press service said.
The Russian authority allowed the import as it had received a satisfactory answer from the Czech side on quality and control of the alcoholic beverages, the sources said.
Earlier, the head of the authority Gennady Onishchenko said the alcohol containing products from the Czech Republic would not be allowed into Russia “until the situation stabilises fully.” The ban was introduced on September 21. A day earlier, government of the republic stopped export of alcohol containing beverages. Earlier, the country banned selling and advertising inside the country.
“The bitter experience proves that whenever anything is banned in Europe, this way or other it gets into our market,” Onishchenko said. “This is typical for our businesses at the modern stage.”
