MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service (VPSS) will restrict most of fruit and vegetable imports from Poland starting from August 1, spokesman Alexei Alekseenko said on Wednesday.
The ban is due to "the violation of certification and the identification of quarantine products", Alekseenko said.
It is also part of a VPSS plan to consider restricting all or some fruit imports from the European Union which was announced on July 28, he said.
