MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/. Russia has imposed a ban on the import and transit of all crop products from Ukraine starting from October 22, 2014, Russia’s veterinary and phyto-sanitary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor said on Tuesday.
“Since Rosselkhoznadzor has not received a reply to its queries from the Ukrainian state phytosanitary service, and also bearing in mind the entire set of threats and risks stemming from the current situation, Alexey Saurin (the deputy chief of Rosselkhoznadzor) made a decision to impose temporary restrictions on all import and transit through its territory of crop products from Ukraine,” the news release runs.
Earlier, the Russian agricultural watchdog asked its Ukrainian counterpart to provide information about the vegetables and fruit being supplied to Russia that might prove re-export items from the EU countries. It set October 21, 2014 as the deadline.
On August 7, 2014 Russia embargoed all key groups of foodstuffs, including vegetables and fruit from the EU countries in response to sanctions against Russia over the Ukrainian crisis.
