“Despite repeated instructions to stop illegal shipments of Belarusian mineral water” Borjomi “(supplier LLC” Classic Wine “, Minsk), continues its illegal importation into the territory of the Russian Federation, with the bottles have excise Belarus” - says the agency and notes that “in such a situation is seen contrary to accepted within the Customs Union documents.”

Federal Service is exploring the possibility of entry into the Russian Federation of mineral water “Borjomi”, according to the site office. According to a press release, Minister Gennady Onishchenko, the Federal Service received a formal application in respect of the importation to Russia of Georgian mineral water, according to “RBC daily”.

However, the Company “Borjomi, Georgia“, the famous mineral water producer, said that did not apply to the Federal Service with a request to return to the Russian market, informs “Sight”.

But, according to Onishchenko, Russian experts are only planning to hold a meeting with representatives of the supplier: “It will be updated the competence of this company, we will check the quality of products” - he said.
