Official says Russia checks 3 EU food makers for possible exports

MOSCOW, Apr 17 (PRIME) – The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Oversight has checked Greek, Hungarian and Cypriot food producers, the first to be allowed to export food to Russia once the sanctions are lifted, aide to the director of the authority Alexei Alekseyenko said on Tuesday.

“The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Oversight has conducted inspections in three countries of the E.U. although export of sanctioned products from there are prohibited. These are Greece, Cyprus and Hungary, the countries that are trying to be cooperative with Russia,” Alekseyenko said.

In 2014, relations between Russia and the West deteriorated to their worse since the Cold War due to a military conflict in Ukraine. The West introduced sanctions against some Russian individuals and firms and further against the energy and banking sectors. In response, Russia limited food imports from some countries, including the U.S., the E.U., Canada, Australia, and Norway.
