Belarus Says It's Not Gateway For Banned Food Products Illegally Entering Russia Featured

03 November 2015

Belarus' Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for over a year now, has been receiving accusations that it has been shipping a number of sanctioned products across its eastern border, Belorussian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makey said last week.

The accusations began nearly as soon as Russia initiated its food embargo. 

“If we were to re-export sanctioned products that were to arrive via the territory of Belarus, the trade turnover between Russia and Belarus would have grown significantly,” the foreign minister said. “But, unfortunately, our trade turnover with Russia from January to August of this year amounted to $18.2 billion. That's almost 30 percent less than the same period in 2014.”

The head of the Belorussian agency commented on a previous agreement, in which if Belarus were to find sanctioned food products, then those items would be sent for additional processing for added value. Such goods have allowed for exports to the Russian market under the status of “goods of the Union State”.

Makey acknowledged that there were isolated instances of suppliers re-exporting products from Belarus, but in such cases the agencies of both countries have worked together to identify violators.
