76,000 fruit trees saplings from Kyrgyzstan not allowed to enter Russia

Two trucks were detained in Russia’s Altai Krai. The residents of Kyrgyzstan tried to import more than 30 tons of planting material. Russian media reported.

As noted, it is impossible to establish the origin of saplings: there is no necessary information on packages.

«Two Kyrgyz citizens imported apricot, quince, apple, pear, cherry, persimmon, peach, as well as roses and pines. The seedlings had a phytosanitary certificate, but there was no marking about the country of origin of the cargo and the exporter. This marking must necessarily be applied to the packaging in which quarantine products are located,» Alexander Bryksin, the state inspector of the Rosselkhoznadzor Department for the Altai Krai, told journalists.

According to him, cargo owners planned to sell the fruit trees in Altai Krai, and part — in the neighboring Kemerovo region.
