MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. A Russian governmental commission has approved a draft law aimed at improving the state regulation of genetic engineering, the government said on its website on Tuesday.
The bill imposes a ban on cultivation and breeding of genetically modified plants and animals in Russia, with the exception of their use for research purposes.
Imports of such products will be closely monitored, the government said. The draft law also implies criminal liability for the use of genetically modified organisms.
According to the Russian Grain Union (RGU), more than 50 companies supply over 500,000 tons of genetically modified products to Russia annually. Transgene soybeans and corn can be found in 61 products on the Russian market (flour, sausages, beverages, food additives, and infant foods).
