Russia's veterinary and phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor said in a statement that it "considered it possible to allow imports of apples, pears and fresh quince, as well as apricots, cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and fresh sloes starting from September 21, 2015 given that no quarantine objects had been revealed in Moldova’s quarantinable products supplied to Russia".

The agency’s statement said some 42 Moldovan enterprises had been permitted to start exporting fruit to Russia, noting that the supplied products should comply with phytosanitary requirements existing in Russia and the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, and were to be free of quarantine objects.
