Border check point approved to let Estonian fish to Russia
The Russian veterinary and phytosanitary service Rosselkhoznadzor approved one more border check point for veterinary inspection of seafood coming into Russia from the EU, according to IA REGNUM.
This particular facility will specifically serve Estonian-Russian seafood trade. The newly added check point is located in the village of Shumilkino, Pskov region.
Russia has resumed direct admission of Estonian seafood via the Russian-Estonian border since 24 November 2006, while until that day Estonian exporters had to deliver their fish to Russia via the Vyborg check point at the Russian-Finnish border. In the Estonian side seafood checks are carried out at the border point of Luhamaa, Estonia's only check point allowed to clear seafood lots for export to Russia.
