Russia to Lift Ban on Milk Products from Lithuania

Russia’s consumers rights watchdog is preparing to lift an embargo on Lithuanian milk products, which was introduced in October 2013, Russian official said on Tuesday.

      “At present, documents to allow these products to Russia are being prepared in the wake of a meeting with Lithuanian officials,” Rospotrebnadzor's acting head Anna Popova said.

      Rospotrebnadzor ordered a ban on the import of Lithuanian dairy products and toughened control over meat and fish products in October, citing sanitary violations. In December the both countries managed to reach an accomodation that Lithuania would take additional measures to ensure its products met quality and food safety requirements.

      Previously Lithuania considered Russia’s “milk wars” as an attempt to exert political pressure and an answer to Lithuania's supporting former Soviet states seeking closer ties with Europe, particularly Ukraine.
