MOSCOW, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s agricultural watchdog on Monday will impose a temporary ban on the import of meat and dairy products from Greece, Rosselkhoznadzor spokesman, Alexei Alexeyenko, told Itar-Tass.
Russia imposes temporary restrictions after experts from Rosselkhoznadzor during inspections of Greek meat and dairy producers exposed violations of veterinary-sanitary requirements of the Customs Union and Russia, he said.
Greece, in turn, started a campaign to familiarize companies wishing to export their produce to Russia with the Customs Union’s norms. Moreover, it asked for a meeting between the two countries’ relevant agencies in Moscow to thoroughly discuss these issues.
Earlier Rosselkhoznadzor imposed temporary restrictions on the import of meat and dairy products only from 50 Greek companies. However, after additional inspections it banned the import of meat and dairy products from all Greek enterprises.
