The ban on the imports of juice products, including baby foods from Ukraine into Russia was imposed on July 29.
The agency said on its website that the ban was imposed because Ukraine’s juice products did not pass state registration as compliant with the Customs Union technical regulations. Such products should have Customs Union’s common market sign.
Russia’s juice imports from Ukraine in 2013 decreased by 12% to 50 tonnes, compared to 2012. In the first half of 2014, Russia imported 16,400 tonnes of Ukrainian juice products.
Russia’s veterinary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor, which regulates the turnover of food raw materials, also banned the imports from Ukraine of animal products, milk and dairy products, vegetable products in luggage and postal parcels, and previously restricted potato and pork imports.
In addition, in view of the deterioration of the quality of exported products and violation of the Russian consumer rights protection legislation, Russia previously restricted the supplies to the country of canned fruits and vegetables and some fruits from Moldova, virtually all vegetable and fruits from Poland. It also banned the import from Latvia of pork products because of the African swine fever virus spread there.
