Russia, EU agree strict checks for vegetable imports

Vegetables from the European Union will face new checks to ensure they are safe to be imported into Russia, the country’s sanitary chief said on Wednesday, adding that Russia’s ban remained in place, RIA Novosti reported. The European Commission said earlier on Wednesday that it had signed an agreement with Russia to immediately resume European vegetable imports, which had been banned over a European pandemic caused by the E. coli bacteria. “A special regime will be introduced, but the embargo has not been canceled yet,” Gennady Onishchenko, head of Russia’s sanitary watchdog, said.
