From today the Russian Federation imposed a ban on import of all cattle breeding production from Ukraine, including dairy, as reported Oleksandr Baranivsky during today’s meeting in Ministry of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine with officials of Veterinary Department.

The Minister noted that Russia accuses Ukraine of non-compliance with the veterinary and sanitary norms. The ban will be valid till the norms are observed.

Baranivsky noted that 60% of Ukrainian diary production exports to the Russian Federation, and criticized the work of the Veterinary Department of Ukraine.

Deputy Agrarian Minister Victor Pabat reported that he had called the Head of Veterinary Service of Russia and asked not to ban at least diary production. The Russian colleagues replied that Ministry of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine should send an official letter.

According to Pabat, the Head of Russia’s Veterinary Service said “they don’t trust Ukrainian Veterinary Department”, and he “will not take such responsibility.”
