MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. Russia will impose a temporary ban on meat supplies from Moldova from October 27, the country's veterinary regulator said on Wednesday.

Sergey Dankvert, head of the Russian veterinary and phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor, said an inspection conducted together with Belarusian counterparts had revealed cases of supplying through Moldova unsafe meat products, including those purchased by wholesalers at common village markets.

Deliveries were destined mainly for Belarus, which had “a more flexible control regime,” Dankvert said.

The inspection found Moldovan meat products to be dangerous according to veterinary and sanitary criteria alongside inaccurate veterinary certification of meat products, he said.

Some Moldovan enterprises showed inconsistency between their production capabilities and the volumes of meat supplied to Russia, he added.
