Belarus ready to ban import of Ukrainian meat and milk

Moscow drags Minsk into a trade war.

Belarus may join the restrictive measures imposed by Russia on the import of beef, milk and dairy products from Ukraine, the website of the Russian Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) cites Belarus's chief sanitary officer Yury Pivavarchyk.

He said to Rosselkhoznadzor's deputy head Yevgeniy Nepoklonov that Belarus would toughen laboratory control over dairy products from Ukraine after Ukraine had exported more than 4,500 tonnes of dairy products to Belarus in 2014.

The officials discussed the danger of deliveries of boneless beef from Ukraine and Moldova to Russia via Belarus.

Rosselkhoznadzor has banned the import of canned vegetables, fruits and fish from Ukraine on July 29. The step was taken due to alleged numerous violations committed by Ukrainian factories producing canned fruits, vegetables and fish. Russia banned the import of Ukrainian milk on July 28. Rosselkhoznadzor explains the decision by numerous violations of Russian veterinary and sanitary rules.

Russia and Ukraine imposed bans on the import of each other's products on July 24. Russia restricted the import of plants from Ukraine in luggage and hand luggage. In response, Ukraine prohibited the import of Russian pork. The decision was taken due to the spread of the African swine flu virus. The Ukrainian authorities said they learnt from diplomatic sources and official press releases of Rosselkhoznadzor about the contamination of pork with the ASF virus in Bryansk, Orenburg and the Kursk region.
