Moscow Tells Belarus, Kazakhstan not to Re-Export Georgian Wines, Mineral Waters into Russia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 31 Jul.'10 / 12:54

Moscow has “requested” its partners from customs union – Belarus and Kazakhstan – not to re-export Georgian and Moldovan wines and mineral waters into Russia, Gennady Onishchenko, Russia's chief sanitary inspector, said on July 30.

Russia banned import of Georgian wines and mineral waters in 2006, citing sanitary reasons.

“We have provided information to our colleagues based on legal acts of customs union of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus that use of number of products in our country is limited. We have requested them to take measures not to let Georgian and Moldovan wines and mineral waters on the Russian territory,” Russian news agency, Interfax, reported quoting Onishchenko said.
 
“It does not mean that we are imposing our will on [Belarus and Kazakhstan] and are limiting their right to use those products. But we have a right to demand to take comprehensive measures in order not to let these products on the Russian market and we’ve used to that right,” he added.
