Therefore, the Chinese side decided to suspend imports of Russian seafood for one week.

Subsequently, the Russian Satellite News Agency reported on October 28 that the Russian health and epidemic prevention department announced that more than 19,000 kilograms of salmon exported from China to Khabarovsk in the Russian Far East were returned due to violations.

Satellite News Agency reported that according to the customs documents submitted, the producer of the fish was Dalian Changfeng Food CO, LTD, and the importer was Amur-Fishing LLC. Employees of the Russian Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision Service found that the product packaging label did not meet the requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union technical regulations.

On October 29, the Russian “Lenta” news agency reported the latest news that China announced an extension of the previous suspension of importing Russian frozen seafood because COVID-19 (Chinese Communist virus) was still found in imported products.

According to information published on the website of the General Administration of Customs of China, the ban will be extended for another four weeks.

The agency wrote in its brief announcement: “Because a sample of the outer packaging of a batch of frozen chick salmon imported from Russia was detected as positive for the new coronavirus nucleic acid, according to the General Administration of Customs Announcement No. 103 of 2020 It is stipulated that the national customs will continue to suspend the acceptance of import declarations for products from the Russian manufacturer Zarya LLC (registration number CH-522) for four weeks starting from November 3, 2021.”

According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency, due to China’s strengthening of quarantine measures against the new crown virus in Russia’s dairy products, Russia’s ice cream exports to China have fallen sharply. Lyudmila Manitskaya, chairman of the Russian Dairy Producers Union, revealed that in 2020, Russian ice cream exports to China are 1,000 tons, 500 tons less than the export volume before the epidemic.
