Rospotrebnadzor permits one more winery in Gagauzia to supply to Russia
MOSCOW. May 23 (Interfax) - The Russian consumer rights watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, has permitted wine supplies from one more enterprise of the Moldovan region of Gagauzia, Rospotrebnadzor Head, Russia's chief sanitary doctor Anna Popova told Interfax on Friday.
"Tests of wine product samples of the Vinaria Botsovan company has been completed. According to the tests, the named wine products comply with standard demands. The restrictions on imports of wine products of this producer introduced earlier are lifted," Popova said.
This is the third Gagauzia winery permitted to start exports to Russia.
Rospotrebnadzor has permitted supplies from Gagauzia's Kazayak-Vin and Invinprom companies.
The Russian watchdog banned Moldovan wine exports in September 10, 2013 due to quality issues.
The ban did not apply to alcohol products from Transdniestria.
The prospects of wine supplies from Gagauzia to Russia are positive, Popova told Interfax on April 21.
On February 2 Gagauzia held a referendum on determining the vector of Moldova's foreign policy and over 98% voters supported Moldova's integration into the Customs Union.
Meanwhile the Moldovan authorities said that the referendum in Gagauzia was unconstitutional and that local authorities had no right to affect the country's foreign policy. The Moldovan prosecutor's office opened criminal cases against some referendum organizers following the vote and Moldovan detectives held searches.
