MOSCOW, May 23. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance may ban supplies of feeding stuffs from the EU due to counterfeiting and use of genetically modified foods, head of the regulator Sergey Dankvert told TASS.
"We have already taken measures regarding five countries, once we discover any new violations we will ban imports from specific countries from the entire EU in general. It will depend on scales of violations," he said.
On May 20, the regulator announced introduction of temporary restrictions on imports of feeding stuffs from a number of enterprises in Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Finland and France.
"We are going to take quite tough measures because veterinary services stopped exercise control over anything. They should registers feeding stuffs with GMO separately but they falsify them and deliver unregistered feeding stuffs.
"If they deliver genetically modified soybeans, it must be registered and feed (with use of GMO - TASS) must be registered," head of the regulator said.
