MOSCOW, January 22. /TASS/. Russia's federal veterinary surveillance service Rosselkhoznadzor said on Thursday importers should change the logistics of their supplies to Russia to bypass Ukraine as the two countries have failed to agree on bilateral cooperation.
“Due to the lack of a constructive dialogue on the part of Ukraine, Rosselkhoznadzor suggests that participants of foreign economic activities should temporarily use sea logistic routes through the ports of the Krasnodar Territory,” the press service said in a statement.
The Rosselkhoznadzor experts believe that the inspectors of Ukraine’s state veterinary service have a selective approach when registering the transit of goods to Russia.
In particular, earlier this month Ukraine suspended the transit via its territory of hatching eggs from Turkey to Russia without sending a preliminary notification to Rosselkhoznadzor.
Kiev said the move came due to the problems with the Argus certification system. Meanwhile, Ukraine provided transit certificates for European goods without any delays.
