ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Over 26 tons of contraband lard from Poland have been detained in the Rostov region, spokesman of the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision for Rostov Region Alexei Sulin told Itar-Tass.
Contraband lard has been found at a supply depot in Donetsk, Suslin said.

There are no accompanying documents. Products have been marked with signs that proves their Polish origin. Pork and other products imports have been banned due to the unfavorable situation, the spokesman said.
