MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. A probable ban on re-export of vegetal products from the European Union (EU) will concern Dutch tulips, Deputy Head of Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Julia Shvabauskene told TASS Friday.
"If we speak about the ban on the EU’s re-export certificates all Dutch flowers and flowers that are supplied via Holland as Ecuadorean for example, will not get to Russia," she said.
The Netherlands supply the main part of its own flowers to Russia via other countries under re-export certificates, Shvabauskene said, adding that the probable ban may also impact imports of flowers bought for the Russian Federation via Dutch auctions, for example, from Ecuador, Costa Rica and Kenya.
As TASS reported earlier Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance banned from Friday re-export of vegetal products from Bulgaria. The measures are taken by the regulator because of numerous cases of falsification of re-export documents or re-export under falsified certificates from other countries. Similar measures may be applied to other counties of the European Union.
