STRASBOURG, October 7 (Itar-Tass) - The European lawmakers decided to put ‘the discriminatory procedures’ on the Russian-Lithuanian border on the agenda of a plenary session of the European Commission that opened here on Monday. The deputies were indignant over the fact that the trucks with the Lithuanian numbers are exposed to particularly thorough checks, because Russia filed the claims to the quality of the Lithuanian dairy products.
Head of the Russian consumer rights watchdog Gennady Onishchenko said that this supervisory agency had introduced a ban on the imports of these products from Lithuania. In his view, he signed the specific documents on October 6 and submitted them to the Federal Customs Service.
Russian authorities have banned the imports of products from Lithuania without any formal notification of the European Commission, the European lawmakers said. The situation on the Russian-Lithuanian border will be discussed with the European Commission on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the European lawmakers did not put up for debates the accusations against several Greenpeace activists at this parliamentary session. These Greenpeace activists tried to board the Russian offshore drilling rig Prirazlomnaya. This issue was put on the preliminary agenda of a next European parliamentary session due at the end of October.
