Rosselkhoznadzor revealed a new scheme of illegal importation of apples from the territory of Belarus. This was reported on the website of the Department.
Agency staff in the inspection of a truck in the Pskov region found four tons of apples of unknown origin, which were hidden under a cargo of five tons of legally imported potatoes. The smuggled products were destroyed.
Earlier in April, the Rosselkhoznadzor addressed in FSB and the Ministry of transport with the request to understand with a gray supply chain of animal products from Belarus.
12 April, Russia banned the import of apples and pears from the territory of Belarus. According to the head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Sergey Manquera, the reason for this step was the fear of possible illegal supply of products from the sanctions countries. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has declared that Minsk is ready in case of need to close for repairs some parts of the pipeline, despite the fact that it is the transportation of Russian oil.
