The administration of the Rosselkhoznadzor for the Bryansk and Smolensk oblasts intends to apply to the Federal Rosselkhoznadzor with a request to ban the export of beef from the Mogilev region of the Republic of Belarus. As explained in the Department, the reason was the massive re-exports of beef from Ukraine.

Only last month in the Smolensk region imported 140 tonnes of such products, which, besides, was infected with Listeria. Almost a third of cases had also been a violation of the rules of marking. Under suspicion that Ukraine turned out to be because she recently several times increased in Belarus the supply of this meat.

The last major cases were found on 18 and 19 March. The first in the region found more than 34 tons of products, some parties were cut of the veterinary brands. In the second 16 tons of suspicious meat was stopped on the main regional customs. There was a similar violation, and the violation of the temperature regime. In both cases, the label on the packaging allows you to open it without damage – this means that it's been opened and can substitute for meat. Supplier turned out to be of "Animexpo", which from January 28 was "black list" of the Russian authorities.

Belarus is increasingly becoming a dishonest supplier for Russia. We will remind that earlier, on 6 February, Russian authorities have banned the supply of beef and beef offal from the Minsk region, where the meat was imported from Ukraine and also from Europe. For 2016, the Republic has delivered more than 15 thousand tons of meat, while the violations were much rarer and are mainly associated with product quality.
