MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. Russia’s agriculture watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor will dispatch for destruction 73 tons of peaches and nectarines from Turkey just stopped on the way to Russia. The consignment had forged Turkish certificates.
Three trucks carrying banned fruit were detained on the Moscow-Minsk road M1 on the Belarusian-Russian border.
"Rosselkhoznadzor inspectors developed suspicion over the rather weird route selected for delivering Turkish products to Russia — allegedly via Greece, Moldova and Belarus," the watchdog said in a statement.
In the course of further inquiries regarding the authenticity of phyto-sanitary certificates of the country of origin it was established that Turkey’s national quarantine and plant protection service issued no documents for this batch of fruit.
The products delivered from the EU under forged certificates are liable to destruction, Rosselkhoznadzor said.
The Russian government earlier issued orders to the Federal Customs Service, agricultural watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor and consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor to destroy all products on the sanction list the moment they enter Russian territory. Under the government resolution the destruction of banned products is to begin as of today.
Agriculture Minister Aleksandr Tkachev came out with a proposal for taking measures to destroy on site the goods featuring on the sanction list at the president’s meeting with government ministers on July 24. President Vladimir Putin supported the idea.
