Russia banned import of some seafood products from Ukraine
In a counter move, the Russian government has expanded economic sanctions against Ukraine, reports Megafishnet.com.
According to the government, the list of goods prohibited for import has been supplemented with a number of items including ready-made crustaceans, mollusks and other aquatic invertebrates.
At the end of 2018, Russia imposed a ban on the import of goods whose country of origin is Ukraine or which are transported through Ukrainian territory. The corresponding list includes products related to item 1604 of the Customs Code of the EAEU "Ready or canned fish; sturgeon caviar and its substitutes made from fish eggs".
Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 1035 of June 28, 2021 supplements this list.
The list includes the item "Ready-made or canned crustaceans, mollusks and other aquatic invertebrates" (1605 HS of the EAEU, short for Eurasian Economic Union).
The changes came into force from the date of official publication on July 2, 2021.
