Russia bans Czech strong alcohol

 Russian consumer rights service Rospotrebnadzor suspended imports of strong alcohol from the Czech Republic following lethal poisoning cases in that country, Russia’s chief state sanitary doctor Gennady Onishchenko said on Friday.


“As the Czech Republic has banned alcohol exports… we assume the ban may result in all those potentially dangerous products reaching the Russian market,” Onishchenko said.


Rospotrebnadzor is also considering banning strong alcohol from Poland and Slovakia, the report said.


In the past two weeks, 23 people have died in the Czech Republic of poisoning after consuming alcohol that contained methenol.


In the first half of 2012 about 800 million liters of strong alcohol have been imported into Russia, with 500 thousand liters of Czech one out of it, which is less than 0.01%.
