MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Russia may impose rules for Ukrainian agriculture products similar to those applied to imports from the European Union (EU) due to risks for Russian consumers, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance said in a press release Friday.
"During consultations the Ukrainian side was given a warning on the possibility of applying to Ukrainian exports the access rules similar to those that are applied to goods from the EU," the press release said.
The approach will be in line with the WTO’s basic principle of non-discrimination, a representative of the regulator said, adding that at present goods from Ukraine are exported to Russia under simplified procedure effective for CIS countries. Ukrainian goods should not take precedence over goods from the EU countries, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance said.
