As of January 25, 2021, Rosselkhoznadzor has imposed a ban on the supply of pears to Russia from Republika Srpska, which is part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This was reported by the press service of the Rosselkhoznadzor.
Rosselkhoznadzor made the official decision after repeated detections of Monilinia fructicola, or brown rot, in consignments of pears supplied to Russia.
On December 21, 2020, the department notified the Bosnian side regarding the contaminated fruit, but soon 3 more cases were identified when imported products were affected by brown rot.
“Given these circumstances, in order to preserve phytosanitary well-being and prevent the introduction and spread of a dangerous quarantine object, Rosselkhoznadzor considered it necessary to introduce restrictions. Consignments of pears shipped from Republika Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina before January 25, 2021, are subject to import only based on the laboratory examination results for the entire complex of quarantine objects characteristic of these products,” the Rosselkhoznadzor press service said.
