The watchdog said it had already expressed serious concern on several
occasions in connection with an array of violations to international
and Russian phytosanitary requirements in shipments of the quarantined
products from Ukraine to Russia.

More specifically, the Ukrainian product was contaminated with weeds
on Russia’s quarantine list: mat sandbur, ragweed and bidens.

In the first half of 2014 alone, these quarantined weeds were
identified in 23 consignments of the Ukrainian plant-based product. Mat
sandbur was discovered in one consignment of corn grits and two batches
of sunflower. Ragweed was discovered in six consignments of soybeans and
bidens was found in 10 batches of soybean meal.
