“The so-called false transit channel has opened now. The most typical example of this is the automobile delivery of pork to Ulan-Bator, which we have returned. Meat supplies are also made to such countries as Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Now it’s everyday worries for us,” he said.
He added that a sharp increase in fish imports from the countries that “had previously not boasted such volumes” has been registered. “As soon as we had it out with Norway, such importers as the Faroe Islands and Greenland have emerged. I never knew that these countries make these amounts of fish products,” the Federal Customs Service head said.
