MOSCOW, June 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s federal supervisory agency in the field of agriculture, Rosselkhoznadzor, plans to introduce provisional restrictions on the imports of beef from the European Union. Alexei Alexeyenko, an aide to the director of the agency said this on Thursday during a meeting with Bernard Van Got, an executive of the European Commission directorate for healthcare and consumer rights protection.

The temporary restrictions will embrace only inexpensive offal and mess meat or trimmings, Alexeyenko said.

“Owing to an earlier ban on supplies of port from Europe, beef offal and trimmings started getting to the Russian market disguised as cheap meats,” he said. “It’s not ruled out that we’ll be compelled to impose interim restrictions on these supplies until we hold technical negotiations.”

Rosselkhoznadzor plans to map out the approaches to verifiable certification of meat products imported from Europe to rule out the supplies of counterfeit produce.
