MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. The Russian federal veterinary and phyto-sanitary control service (Rosselkhoznadzor) suspects Ukraine of re-exporting banned vegetables and fruit from the EU to Russia.
The service warns it may impose restrictions if the information is confirmed, Rosselkhoznadzor chief Sergey Dankvert told TASS.
Dankvert said Ukraine considerably increased agricultural exports to Russia in September 2014.
“We will send a letter to Ukraine today (October 14) with the request to explain the considerable increase of plant agricultural supplies — apples, pears, tomatoes and cucumbers — after we imposed measures in response to economic sanctions,” Dankvert said.
