MOSCOW – Rosselkhoznadzor has announces the banning of import of fruit, vegetables and flowers from Uganda effective, July 7.
This comes after Uganda failed to provide information about the volume of produce the country was exporting to Russia.
“Nearly all fruits and vegetables popular in Russia and flowers are the case in point. Restrictions are introduced to prevent deliveries of products under sanctions to Russia, Melano said.
Rosselkhoznadzor sent an inquiry to Uganda earlier requesting information about volumes of produce supplied to Russia, the spokesperson said.
“We have not received the response and are therefore forced to undertake restrictive measures,” she added.
