Rosselkhoznadzor will prohibit the import of Belarusian dairy products into Russia. Restrictions will come into effect on February 26, on Monday, and relate to regular milk and cream, and dry analogues, as well as whey. WE have talked about this radical move on the Russian side with an economist Yaraslau Ramanchuk.
“The way the Russian side behaves demonstrates disrespect for the interests of the trading partners in the Customs Union. The fact that Russia has imposed a ban on European products without consultation with Kazakhstan and Belarus, suggests that the Russians formally signed an agreement and do have formal codes, but if some lobbyists there decide something, they say, “we don’t care about Belarusians, Kazakhs, Armenians, we are doing what is convenient for us. ” Therefore, I believe that this is a rough lobbying, “Business Russian style”, when they use the power of the administrative resources to ensure that the Belarusian producers entered into negotiations. I know for sure that there were attempts to capture a number of major Belarusian enterprises through such schemes,” Yaraslau Ramanchuk said.
