MOSCOW, February 15. /TASS/. Russian agricultural watchdog (Rosselkhoznadzor) has banned transit of goods from 24 African countries via Belarus, head of the watchdog Sergey Dankvert said speaking at the Russian-Uruguayan business forum.
"We have closed the transit through Belarus from 24 African countries that have not confirmed shipments of products in Belarus," he said.
The head of the watchdog said that goods banned for import to Russia were delivered as products from African countries. Rosselkhoznadzor repeatedly complained to Belarus over re-exports of banned goods to Russia through its territory. For this reason, Russia also limited supplies of goods from a number of Belarusian enterprises.
