ST. PETERSBURG, May 21 (Itar-Tass) - Ninety Georgian wines have been allowed on the Russian market, Russian chief sanitary doctor and head of the federal consumer rights protection authority Gennady Onishchenko said on Tuesday.
“Nine manufacturers applied for permission to export 135 types of their products. We have registered 90,” he told the sixth Neva international ecological congress. “We have completely banned five cognac brands, and turned down three wine brands today.”
According to Onishchenko, no applications for excise stamps have come so far, since the manufacturers are “yet undecided how to export their products and which distributers to choose to sell them.”
