The head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Sergey Dankvert at the end of last week was sent to the Prosecutor General’s office answers questions about the reasons for the ban of the import of Belarusian products, said the “Izvestia” press-Secretary of service Julia Melano. She clarified that the Rosselkhoznadzor received questions on behalf of the Russian Prosecutor’s office, with the full contents of the letter of the Prosecutor General of Belarus on the service not familiar with.
Key issues were the reasons for the ban of deliveries of meat and dairy products from a number of companies. We provided a detailed report on all the violations that we identified, the arrests carried out on the deviations identified through laboratory analysis. That’s a pretty big package of documents, answers absolutely ordinary, — said Julia in a few words.
According to her, the questions concerned the reasons for restrictions on animal products from Belarus, introduced in recent years. The response lists all the cases and grounds for each specific case.
In particular, the latter restriction — the prohibition of the export of beef and beef by-products from Minsk region from February 6. Russian veterinarians had suspected that part of the products after re-packing and relabeling was delivered to Russia via Belarus from Europe and Ukraine, however, the Belarusian side did not investigate these facts. The Rosselkhoznadzor found that products of unknown origin is a threat from the point of view of biological safety.
The ban on export of concerned products from Belarusian enterprises “Unexampled”, “George and sons”, “Terramite” and “Lelchitsy raypo”, company “Industrial complex”. In “George and sons” “news” reported that due to the prohibition of deliveries to Russia the company is on the verge of bankruptcy, and suggested that in a similar situation as other businesses.
The press service of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation on Tuesday failed to clarify whether the letter to Sergey Dankvert the timeframe in which information can be sent to the Belarusian colleagues.
In early February of this year the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has instructed the interior Ministry to initiate a criminal case against the head of the Rosselkhoznadzor. The President of the Union state said that Sergey Dankvert intentionally causes damage to Belarus, preventing the enterprises of the country the importation of food to Russia. In the framework of the preliminary investigation, the Belarusian Prosecutor General’s office sent their Russian colleagues questions to the official.
Professor of foreign policy of Russia, faculty of national security of the Ranepa under the President of the Russian Federation Alexander Mikhailenko noted that. without ignoring questions of Belarusians, the Russian side has shown some flexibility, and this strategy should be followed in the future.
— Belarus is our ally, we have not so much, so these relationships need to be nurtured and developed. Is not to aggravate, but to help them to find development options, suggest other ways to make money — without “growing” oysters and the supply of apples, five times higher than their crop — the expert believes.
March 27, Sergey Dankvert reported new cases of import “sanctions” through Belarus. According to him, a significant part of vegetables and fruits from the Republic comes to Russia to bypass the checkpoints in order to hide the shipments from countries subject to the food embargo.
We are deeply concerned that Belarusian statistics data on the supply of certain types of crop production in Russia does not correspond to information in the information system of the Rosselkhoznadzor. This system reflects the fact that passed through checkpoints, this is the actual volume of deliveries, — has informed Sergey Dankvert.
For example, according to Belarusian statistics, in 2016 in Russia was sent to 113 thousand tons of apples. The Rosselkhoznadzor also registered their receipt in the amount 139,9 thousand tons According to the Belarusian statistics, last year Russia had sent a 81.5 thousand tons of potatoes, and the Russian system registered 212,5 thousand tons of Cabbage, according to Belarusian data, sent 17,8 thousand tons, and Russian — came to 59.5 thousand tons.
