Russia considers ban on EU fruit imports
"We consider limiting supplies from some countries such as Poland, Moldova and the Netherlands," Mr. Alexeyenko told ITAR-TASS. Oriental fruit moth contaminated the fruit, he explained.
The watchdog's chief Sergei Dankvert earlier said Russia could restrict import of Polish apples because of moth as well as incorrect certificate execution. "We have already held preliminary talks. Punitive measures will be next," Dankvert said.
The mentioned fruit moth afflicts fruit and sprouts of peach, quince, pear and plum as well as apricot, apples, medlar and cotoneaster." ■
