MINSK, December 15. /TASS/. Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) takes a biased stance of the farming produce and foodstuffs from Belarus, the Belarusian Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Igor Brylo, told national television on Wednesday.
"Rosselkhoznadzor is displaying a biased treatment of our produce this year," he said.
Stations for advance notification have been set up along the Belarusian-Russian administrative border and Rosselkhoznadzor subjects all the Belarusian products to total screening there, Brylo said, adding that Minsk did not have the confidence over the observance of all the required conditions in the process of delivery of test samples to labs.
He accused the Russian watchdog agency of ‘crude violations’ and ‘an unprofessional approach’.
Brylog also mentioned the problem of faking the produce from Belarus. "Numerous types of meat and dairy products are made under Belarusian brand names in Russia and this is a reason for getting law enforcement agencies engaged in the situation," he said.
Of the 58 countries that consume Belarusian farming products and foodstuffs, only Russia has claims against its quality, Brylo said.
Rosselkhoznadzor has been making regular complaints over the quality of Belarusian produce. This spring, it suspended the imports of chicken and other types of meat from five large Belarusian enterprises.
In the summer, the watchdog service banned the imports of produce from a number of Belarusian dairy factories.
