The Rosselkhoznadzor imposed enhanced laboratory supervision over dairy products imported from 18 of the Belarusian refineries.
the Ministry stressed that the neighbouring country continues to receive livestock products non-compliances with the veterinary and sanitary requirements and norms of the EAEU.
the message of the Rosselkhoznadzor, for example, indicates a higher content of product types of bacteria groups, coliforms and other pathogens and microorganisms. In addition, the parties discovered the antibiotics or undeclared DNA.
in case of further detection of substandard products, the Ministry threatened to consider restricting imports of milk and meat produced by these companies.
Russia and Belarus for several years already are discussions around the supply of agricultural products, e.g. milk, meat, dairy products and meat. The Rosselkhoznadzor periodically put a taboo on the import of Belarusian products, pointing to the problems with their quality. In addition, Moscow suspects that through this country to the Russian Federation fall foods sanctions.
in 2017, Alexander Tkachev, who held the post of Minister of agriculture, said that Belarus earns on export of milk to the Russian Federation more than three billion dollars. After the introduction of the Moscow food embargo Minsk increased the share of deliveries to the Russian Federation from one to fifteen percent, becoming the largest conduit for sanctions products.
