Russian VPSS to plan to strengthen the fight against sanction goods

Russian Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service (VPSS) intends to turn up the heat on prohibited products, RBC reports the statement of Dankvert, the head of the department. So, Dankvert proposes to introduce liability for carriers and cargo drivers and to punish them by confiscation of cars and goods, and by imports ban for drivers over five years.

Dankvert thinks that qualification of smugglers has become much higher, and when each carrier or driver becomes aware of the fact that his car and goods can be confiscated, this will help to overcome illegal supply.

It’s clarified that this issue has been currently under Government control.
