Isayev said this was connected with multiple violations to Russian phytosanitary requirements. This above all concerns shipments with seeds of quarantined weeds, he noted.

“We have expressed concern numerous times on the fact that quarantined weeds were discovered in this product. We warned that restrictive measures could follow [and] welcomed telephone negotiations, but there was no response from our Ukrainian colleagues. Moreover, they themselves provided a special email address for correspondence, but they did not answer our emails,” Isayev said.

For that reason, Rosselkhoznadzor was forced to ban shipments of the products in order to protect Russia from harmful plants, he added.
