MOSCOW, 6 Aug - RIA Novosti/Prime. Russia on Thursday begins at its disposal the border of agricultural products banned for import in Russia, for which the majority will be used industrial furnaces, however, officials consider the possibility of processing dairy and meat products in animal feed.
last week the head of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has signed the Decree about liquidation on 6 August on the border of the Russian Federation banned the import of foodstuffs. Then the government approved the rules of destruction of food sanctions.
Recycling can be carried out by any method prescribed by law, and the elimination of selected products produced, regardless of whether or not the owner or organizer of delivery. The decree on the elimination on the border of Russia of products that fall under the food embargo shall not apply to goods that Russian citizens bring to yourself.
The main argument of supporters of the destruction of objects - such measure will allow to reduce the amount of illegally imported to the Russian Federation of products. The head of the Ministry of agriculture of the Russian Federation Alexander Tkachev, putting forward the idea of the elimination of items was noted that all goods lawfully prohibited products have to come back to their owners on the platform from which they came.
This impeded the resolution of the situation with illegal supplies. The opinion of the head of the agricultural Department two weeks later confirmed the Rosselkhoznadzor. For example, the assistant head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Alexei Alekseenko said that detained at the border goods products with sanctions After returning back eventually fell to the platform of the Russian Federation with altered documents, under the guise of transit items, that fact did not stop this thread.
for its part, the press Secretary of the Rosselkhoznadzor she Melano Tuesday said that the service is monitored by the decrease in the supply of goods are prohibited goods, even though the presidential Decree has not yet entered into force.
The Head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova expressed the View that sanctions the products pose a risk to the consumer, so default to false information about the quality, origin and safety. For this reason, in her expressions, the destruction of these items is " quite logical ".
at the same time opponents of the destruction of the sanctions products do not exclude that such a measure has the ability to be not only costly for the budget and bad for the environment, but also unfair, taking into account the number of people requiring regular food Russian citizens. Most analysts stated: in Russia, there are orphanages, homes for the elderly and socially vulnerable residents, which could provide basis of seized products.
very same idea was expressed by the authors of the petition against the destruction of sanctions products, which is available on the portal change. Org." Why do we destroy food to feed veterans, pensioners, invalids, large families that received damage from natural disasters and other needy?", - they are asking the question.
at present this petition was supported by more than 200 thousand people. On Wednesday, press Secretary of the head of the country Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin will report on the petition against the destruction of contraband. However, he clarified that the accuracy of the number of signatories is still expected to test.
After the signing of the presidential decree was heard, and other suggestions about how you can dispose of contraband products. For example, the Council on human rights Under the President of Russia has made the initiative to give these products to refugees from Ukraine.
for his part, the leader of the CPRF Gennady Zyuganov has made the initiative to establish a Commission which will be engaged in a distribution are prohibited to import into Russia and seized on the border products in orphanages, Orthodox communities, and likewise in the DPR and LPR.
