Lukashenka about Russia: What kind of behavior is this?


The president states that he is disappointed with the ongoing position of Russian authorities which are limiting Belarusian products in the market in the Russian Federation.

"Im not only surprised but also dissatisfied with the Russian authorities line. If in the nearest future the trade is not stabilized we will have to react. What kind of behavior is this?!" stated Lukashenka at the meeting with the governor of St. Petersburg Georgy Poltavchenko on Thursday in Minsk, reports Interfax.

It should be reminded that Russia has banned almost all imported meat from Belarus.

Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance offers challenges on non-compliance of the Belarusian products with food safety standards and with Russia and Trade Unions law. According to the service, the Belarusian meat contains harmful bacteria and antibiotics. Beginning Wednesday, the products of OAO Skidzel agricultural complex, OAO Vitsebsk broiler plant, SZAO Servoluks Agro, OAO Kalinkavichy meat cutting plant, OAO Rogachev milk canning plant and OAO Poultry farm Rassvet are not imported in the Russian Federation.
