Russia to lift Hungary vegetable import ban

Russia's chief health officer Gennady Onishchenko on Wednesday announced vegetable imports from eight European countries, including Hungary, would be allowed into the country again as the necessary documents had been submitted, but he did not say when the permits would be issued.

Russia's consumer protection authority banned imports of vegetables, with the exception of potatoes, from some countries in Europe on May 30 because of an E.coli outbreak concentrated in Germany. It extended the ban to all European Union member states on June 2.

Moscow lifted the ban on vegetable imports from the Netherlands and Belgium on June 28 and from Spain and Denmark on July 1.
