MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. Russia will introduce special phytosanitary conditions for import of vegetable products via Belarus from December 7, Russian agricultural supervision authority Rosselkhoznadzor told TASS on Tuesday.
"Rosselkhoznadzor has to introduce special phytosanitary conditions from December 7, which imply confirmation of authenticity of phytosanitary certificates serving as grounds to issue Belarus re-export phytosanitary certificates," press secretary of the regulator Yulia Melano said. These measures are needed to prevent export of products of unknown origin to Russia through Belarus, including products under the food embargo against EU countries, she added.
The regulator is also concerned about potential import of goods from Turkey to be banned from January 1, 2016, through the territory of Belarus. "Certainly, unfair suppliers will try to use the opportunity of delivering such supplies via Belarus," the regulator said.
Rosselkhoznadzor several times requested the Belarus party to discuss the situation but no response was received, Melano told TASS earlier.
