Czech, Greek Veggies Return

Russia will accept vegetable imports from the Czech Republic and Greece and review an import ban from other European countries, which was set up in response to an E. coli outbreak, according to the country's consumer safety watchdog's web site.

Russia prohibited all fresh-vegetable imports from the 27-nation EU on June 2 after the E. coli outbreak began in Germany. At least 4,023 people across Europe have been infected; 44 have died from the disease.

Vegetables from the Czech Republic and Greece can be imported to Russia provided that they meet safety requirements, according to the watchdog's web site Monday.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
