“We have asked Ukraine’s Veterinary Service to have telephone consultations on this matter as soon as possible,” Alexei Alexeyevnko, an aide to the head of Russia’s veterinary and phytosanitary service (Rosselkhoznadzor), told ITAR-TASS.
Rosselkhoznadzor, which controls imports of edible raw materials, has prohibited to bring in Russia Ukrainian animal and vegetable products, milk and dairy products in luggage and by post from July 28. Previously, the Russian veterinary watchdog limited imports of Ukrainian potato and pork.
According to official statistics of Russia’s Federal Customs Service, in the period from January to June 2014 Ukrainian food imports to Russia (with the exception of drinks) stood at 229,600 tonnes and were worth $495 million.
