Moscow warned Baku about inconsistency of agricultural products with Russian requirements

Rosselkhoznadzor in telephone conversations with the Food Industry Agency of Azerbaijan on October 22 expressed concern over the increasing number of supplies to Russia of low-quality agricultural products that do not meet Russian safety requirements. Highly anticipated news against the backdrop of tense relations between Baku and Yerevan.

The Russian department informed about frequent cases of detection of quarantine objects in imported Azerbaijani vegetables and fruits - 76 such cases have been recorded since the beginning of this year. Most of them (15) refer to tomatoes from Azerbaijan - they found the South American tomato moth. Quarantine violations were also found in imported Azerbaijani plums, apples, pomegranates, food potatoes and other agricultural crops.

The Azerbaijani authorities noted that, for their part, they would investigate such cases, but stressed the absence of such quarantine objects in their plant products. The Rosselkhoznadzor noted that their presence in Azerbaijani products may indicate that the supplied goods contain vegetables and fruits from other countries.

In this regard, Moscow warned Baku about the possibility of introducing restrictions on the import of such agricultural products from Azerbaijan, if the situation does not change. The Russians also asked their Azerbaijani colleagues to provide them with the necessary information on the measures taken, as well as on the volumes of plant products grown in Azerbaijan and those that come there from other countries.

    In words, the comrades did not understand; Onishchenko's methods were used. Further (according to tradition) Turkish tomatoes (just their season).

    Once upon a time it was at least a little worried, but now it goes like another unfunny joke.

    The volume of trade between Azerbaijan and Russia is slightly more than $ 3 billion a year, where 600 is Azerbaijan's share in Russia, and 1400 Russia is in Azerbaijan. At the same time, 68% of the share of Azerbaijan's exports are agricultural products. Russia benefits from trade with Azerbaijan. The very structure of trade is also in our favor; we supply engineering products, electronics and metals there. If we compare it with Armenia, then this is 2 times more. According to the structure, we drive raw materials to Armenia, and we get wine, clothes and precious metals. Armenia is not an ally or friend to us, moreover, they threw mud at the Russian embassy, ​​insulted it, called it invaders and demanded that we get out. Can we hand over this Armenia to Turkey and get the ransom money? In a year or two, Armenia would still become a hostile state to us, just like Ukraine, but now there is a good opportunity to repulse at least part of investments in this country.

      Armenia is a member of the CSTO ... for its surrender to Turkey, Armenia must withdraw from the CSTO ..
      and of course, for Russia, Armenia is just an ANNUAL Nipple ...
      Without the protection of Russia, Turkey will arrange another GENOCIDE for Armenia and the Armenians will disappear as a people ..

    Well, and then war, war ...
    Nobody will harness for the Armenians. But to scare the Azeris with the loss of a huge market is easy.
    It can become stronger than bombs.

    Nice move. Not decisive, of course, but with a hint. Russia should not allow the total humiliation of Armenia. And he won't. And it's not about Armenia. Turkey is the question. And not only in Transcaucasia, but also in Syria, Libya and the Turkic-speaking republics of the former USSR. And Pashinyan will leave, the fight for Armenia will continue nevertheless. And alas, not among the Armenians.

    It is high time to put things in order with the supply of fruits and vegetables from Azerbaijan. They are clearly overpriced, which causes discontent among our consumers. Yes, and the volumes of goods sold raise big questions. The experience of supplying Polish apples through Belarus warns of vigilance.
