Russia Bans Lithuanian Dairy Products

Russia’s consumer rights watchdog said Monday it was ordering a ban on the import of Lithuanian dairy products, the latest twist in an escalating spat between the two countries. Lithuania, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, has angered Moscow by its strong support for closer ties between Brussels and former Soviet states. “After investigating dairy products produced by the Lithuanian Republic we have found many legislative violations in the field of consumer rights… and in human disease control and prevention,” said a statement posted online by Rospotrebnadzor, Russia's consumer rights watchdog.
