MOSCOW, October 15. /TASS/. Russia’s consumer rights protection watchdog asked the Ukrainian veterinary service for proof to be presented by October 21 that food imported to Russia is of Ukrainian origin, and not re-exported from EU countries, the authority said in a statement Wednesday.
Director of the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Control Sergey Dankvert said earlier that Russian regions bordering Ukraine have recently seen an abrupt growth in imports of apples, tomatoes, cucumbers, pears and plums passing across the border without identification marks, which might signify foreign origin of the imported products, he said.
In August, Russia banned imports of beef, pork, poultry, fish, cheese, dairy products, fruits and vegetables from Australia, Canada, Norway, the US and the EU for one year to retaliate Western sanctions.
