MOSCOW, May 22. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Agriculture is considering an option of introducing protective duties on import of milk and dairy products to Russia, the ministry said on Friday.
"The National Dairy Producers Union (Soyuzmoloko) is recommended to initiate an antidumping probe on import of milk and dairy products to Russia for the purpose of possible introduction of protective duties," the ministry said in assignments following the meeting.
Soyuzmoloko already gathered materials for the antidumping probe on import of dairy products to Russia. However, the matter of protective duties ceased to be relevant after Russia imposed a food embargo on August 7, 2014, executive director of the Union Artyom Belov said on Friday.
"The situation at the end of 2014 returned us to the question of relevancy at the Customs Union’s level, so that to protect and ensure profitability of domestic producers in the territory of all the member-nations of the union," Belov said. Soyuzmoloko discussed the issue of the antidumping probe and protective duties with the Russian Ministry of Agriculture first and then sent similar requests to Belarus and Kazakhstan, he added.
Soyuzmoloko expects the probe will be carried out in cooperation with the Russian Ministry of Agriculture.
