Rosselkhoznadzor is banning the transportation through Russian territory of live poultry, poultry meat and other poultry products from the United States starting on June 10, the service's director, Sergei Dankvert, told Interfax.
"This decision is connected with the fact that avian flu is spreading in the U.S., and we have instances where U.S. products, which underwent transport to other countries, were returned to our market," he said, noting that in such a way, unscrupulous suppliers circumvented the Russian food embargo.
