Imports of animal products from Russia
Question for written answer E-006600/2020
to the Commission
Markus Buchheit (ID)
During repeated inspections in Russia, DG SANCO found that while Russian veterinary offices carry out strict controls on imports from the EU, exports to the EU are not checked at all. During its inspections DG SANCO also found that Russian animal production is very unprofessional and that there is a massive overuse of antibiotics.
What measures has the Commission taken since then to protect EU consumers from food of animal origin imported from Russia, contaminated through excessive doses of antibiotics?
