MOSCOW, July 6. /TASS/. Rosselkhoznadzor bans import of fruit, vegetables and flowers from Uganda since July 7 because of concerns that prohibited products may be supplied from this country to Russia, official spokesperson of the Russian veterinary and phytosanitary watchdog Yulia Melano told TASS on Wednesday.
"Nearly all fruits and vegetables popular in Russia and flowers are the case in point. Restrictions are introduced to prevent deliveries of products under sanctions to Russia, Melano said.
Rosselkhoznadzor sent an inquiry to Uganda earlier requesting information about volumes of produce supplied to Russia, the spokesperson said.
"We have not received the response and are therefore forced to undertake restrictive measures," she added.
