Russia tightens checks on Ukrainian alcohol

To ensure that all imports meet Russian health regulation

Russian health authorities are set to carry out checks on alcoholic beverages from Ukraine in a move that experts say could have a debilitating impact on Ukrainian drink firms, according to RFE/RL.

The Russian consumer protection agency Rospotrebnadzor said on October 16 that the checks, which will be conducted on everything from raw materials to Ukrainian production facilities, are intended to ensure that all imports meet Russian health regulations.

Media reports said it would also be harder to obtain export licenses to Russia.
