Brazil's Meat Gets Go-Ahead

Russia may allow imports from 37 Brazilian meat producers, whose safety standards have not been verified by the South American nation's veterinary service, if Russian laboratories prove that the products are safe upon arrival.

The procedure would relate to meat and related products produced before Aug. 1, the Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Inspection Service, Russia's food safety watchdog, announced Thursday.

The service "found it possible to agree that such products may be shipped to Russia, but only after obligatory laboratory proof of safety upon arrival," it said.

Russia has temporarily banned meat imports from 80 companies in Brazil's provinces of Mato Grosso, Rio Grande do Sul and Parana since June 15 in a dispute over safety standards.

… 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.
