Russia started another round of meat and milk war against Belarus.

“Violations of the veterinary and sanitary requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union and Russia by laboratories subordinate to the Rosselkhoznadzor were found in the products of 11 Belarusian enterprises,” the Rosselkhoznadzor said in a statement.

Staring from today, the following enterprises cannot supply their products to the Russian market: “Belovezhskaya delicacies”, “Vitsebsk broiler factory”, poultry factory “Druzhba” and Slutsk meat processing plant.

Products from the Berezovskaya and Dyatlovskiy cheese-making facilities, Pastavy, Pinsky and Slonim Meat-Packing Plants, as well as from the Agricultural Complex Dzerzhinsky and Belavezhsky will be put on a special laboratory control.

It is the Russian market that accounts for more than 90% of Belarusian agricultural exports.
