We in Russia do not want those E.coli tainted Vegetables…

I have to agree with Russia on the issue of banning EU veggies. I keep reading almost daily about another person dying from the E.coli strain that has been unleashed. Russia has enough issues without inviting death across the border and since Sveta and I live in Russia we really do not want EU veggies on our store shelves…

But that does not mean that the EU is not having a tantrum over the ban…

Russia’s ban on veggie imports from the EU complicates its negotiations on WTO accession.

This was stated by the European Commissioner for Trade Karel De Gucht, speaking in the Chamber of Commerce in Washington.

Russia imposed an embargo on vegetable imports from Europe in early June, in the wake of the E.coli outbreak scare.

In Germany, the infection has caused the death of 38 people.

So things make sense and since Russia has an abundance of veggies why take a chance? Besides who really gives a crap about the WTO? If you think it is a great idea then you need to do some research on the subject…

I do not care if Russia ever lifts the ban on EU veggies. We have more vegetables come from Israel anyway…

Windows to Russia!
