MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. Belarus’ customs officers have restarted inspections of trucks on the border with Russia, Yelena Grach, a representative for the Federal Customs Service told PRIME Monday.

“The service is confirming that Belarusian customs officers have restarted their operations on the border with Russia. Customs control from our side has not been carried out,” Grach said.

Russia’s agriculture watchdog earlier imposed a ban, effective from November 30, on transit of food from Belarus to third countries, including Kazakhstan, through Russia without additional examination due to an increase of smuggling. The ban is applied to supplies of food sanctioned by Moscow in retaliation for western sanctions.

Control over the countries’ borders was suspended in 2011 after Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan had established the Customs Union, under which the inspections are carried out at the outer borders of the Union.
