Lukashenka thinks to make friends with the EU, Russia – ban of Belarusian milk

The Rosselkhoznadzor has not excluded the possibility of a ban of Belarusian dairy products because of the backlog of complaints about the quality and safety of products. Coincidence or not, but almost simultaneously the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko hinted that Minsk would do well to establish relations with the European Union.

The issue of the ban of supplies of Belarusian dairy products were discussed during the meeting of head of Rosselkhoznadzor Sergey Dankvert, Deputy Minister of agriculture of Belarus Alexander Subbotin, said on the Agency’s website.

The Russian side, in particular, urged Belarus to take measures to prevent the export to Russia of products not in compliance. The Rosselkhoznadzor has warned that in case of re-identifying poor-quality dairy production from Belarus authorities have to impose restrictions up to a total ban.

During the dialogue Dankvert gave specific examples of supplies of Belarusian enterprises of milk powder that did not meet the technical regulations of the Customs Union.

Today it became known that Alexander Lukashenko announced its readiness to normalize relations with the European Union, reports TASS. In particular, the President set a task to come to a conclusion of basic agreement between Minsk and the EU.

He also lamented the fact that anti-Russian sanctions have hit Belarus as crashed turnover led to the overstocking of local businesses.
