MINSK, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - Belarus does not re-export goods from third countries to Russia, the press service of the Belarusian State Customs Committee said on Thursday.
According to the press service, reports in the Internet about re-export from Belarus mislead the public and form a negative opinion about the functioning of the customs service.
The Belarusian customs agency said that 276 tons of dairy products were imported to Belarus from Poland in the first half of this year, and only 72 kilograms of them were brought from Belarus to Russia. During the period, more than ten tons of Polish dairy products were brought from Russia to Belarus, and more than 71,000 tons were transported in transit to Russia across Belarus.
In the first half of the year, a total of $482.9 million worth of goods from third countries were transported from Belarus to Russia and $633.6 million worth from Russia to Belarus, the customs agency noted.
