MOSCOW, August 6./TASS/. Russia’s agriculture watchdog (Rosselkhoznadzor) has given green light to 17 Moldovan supplies for exports to Russia of some berries and fruits starting from August 7, easing a ban on Moldovan fruits imposed last year, its press release said on Thursday.
It said apples, pears, queen-apples as well as apricots, and cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and black thorn have been allowed.
Seventeen suppliers are on the list of enterprises that have got permission to export fruits to Russia. The report marked that "the supplied products must comply with phytosanitary standards of Russia and the Customs Union".
Last summer, the watchdog banned the import of fruits from Moldova, citing a large number of violations during supplies. Russia later canceled zero import tariffs on other Moldovan goods.
Moldova’s farmers cannot orient their supplies to the EU market as their goods fail to comply with the European quality standards. The Moldovan fruit growers have suffered the greatest losses as the country was ranked second in apple exports to Russia after Poland.
