YEREVAN, August 21. / ARKA /. Russian agricultural watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor said today it ordered the destruction of 200 kg of Armenia-produced sturgeon in a heat-treating furnace in Sochi, a resort city in the southern Russia.
According to local Rosselkhoznadzor's veterinary supervision service, the fish was ordered to be destroyed because the Armenian exporter is not listed in the register of certified companies.
Rosselkhoznadzor said the decision complies with the requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), of which Armenia is a member. It said the Armenian company did not object the destruction of the product.
According to the watchdog, import of goods subject to state veterinary supervision of the Russian Federation, should comply with the regulations of the EEU. It said the list of enterprises in EEU member states which are allowed to export their goods to Russia can be found at ssfs.am.-0-
