The Federal service for supervision of consumer rights protection and human welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) has allowed deliveries to Russia of 20 types of Moldovan wines. This is stated in the message service.
Such decision was accepted by results of examination of documents and laboratory tests of samples of wine products of the enterprise “Plant for the production of wines “Cricova”” (SA “CRICOVA”, Moldova).
“The results issued a positive opinion on presented 20 types of wine products. Plant for the production of wines “Cricova” (SA “CRICOVA”) allowed export of the mentioned products to the Russian Federation”, — stated in the message service.
The report also notes that shipments of products from the plant will be carried out as before in the single window mode.
In late February, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova admitted that a large part of the Moldavian wineries can supply products to the Russian market. It was reported that the experts of the Supervisory authority examined thirteen wineries and came to the conclusion that most of the wineries can supply products to Russia after laboratory testing and provide necessary documentation.
The ban on imports of Moldovan wines was first introduced in 2006. It was initiated by Gennady Onishchenko at the time held the position of chief sanitary doctor of Russia. Ban Moldovan wine and wine products was substantiated by the presence in the production of pesticides.
In September 2013, Russia again suspended the import of wines from Moldova, after the CPS found several consignments of Moldovan alcoholic beverages that do not meet safety requirements. Strengthening controls on the supply of Moldovan products was associated with the signing of Moldova agreement on free trade zone with the EU in 2014. The CPS did not rule out that in this country may be re-exports of European products.
