Speaking at the Russian State Duma lower parliament house, Belyaninov noted that imports of goods banned from entry to Russia had recently increased in Belarus and Kazakhstan. “But we cannot exclude that such goods may later freely reach Russia,” he said. “In a bid to minimize this threat, we have referred a proposal to the Russian government and agencies concerned, such as the interior ministry, the federal veterinary and phytosanitary authority (Rosselkhoznadzor), and the border service, to set up joint mobile groups to exercise control in areas in the vicinity of Russia’s borders with Belarus and Kazakhstan,” he said, adding that such groups should be coordinated by the interior ministry and Rosselkhoznadzor.
According to Belyaninov, the bulk of such cases had been reported in imports via Belarus by motor and railway transport.
“We report a 4.5-fold increase of import of apples from Serbia and Ukraine, a 1.8-fold increase of import of peaches from Macedonia and Serbia. Imports of peaches from Turkey have jumped by 72 times,” he said.
