Russia bans Latvian dairy products entering Kaliningrad

Jan 20, 2014
From wire reports, RIGA

Russia has banned a shipment of dairy products coming over Kaliningrad enclave.

More than 700 kilograms of dairy products have been sent back to Latvia due to a discrepancy in accompanying documents, The Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Rosselkhoznadzor says.

The shipment was sent from Riga, but the name of the company has not been mentioned. Rosselkhoznadzor has established that the truck's license plate does not match the one mentioned in the cargo's veterinary certificate, hence the shipment was sent back to Latvia.

Russia also banned 24,000 cans of Latvian sprats earlier this month sparking concerns from Latvia that the move was politically motivated. 

Last year, Russia banned Lithuanian dairy products from entering their borders. after saying they contained deficiencies. European officials blamed Russia for bullying.
