“Disruptions in the supply of milk to the stores in connection with the entry into force of the order of the Ministry of agriculture on registration of veterinary accompanying documents will not be”, – said the MP reporters. In her opinion, “all complaints of the National Union of milk producers (“Soyuzmoloko”) on the new requirements, as well as their statements about possible growth of prices for dairy products because of the order of the Ministry of agriculture at least untenable.”
Shkolkina recalled that, according to the law “On veterinary medicine”, until January 1, 2018 registration of veterinary accompanying documents, in particular, milk is not produced or is produced in electronic form at the request of the owner of the controlled goods. “I think this misunderstanding will soon be removed, as the agriculture Ministry will soon prepare an appropriate explanation,” she concluded.
According to the newspaper “Kommersant”, the national Union of milk producers (Soyuzmoloko) appealed to the Vice Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, the head of the presidential administration Sergei Ivanov and Deputy economic development Minister Oleg Fomichyov with a request to recall the order of the Ministry of agriculture No. 648. According to large producers, the reluctance of the Russian dairy industry from March 2016 to issue veterinary accompanying documents for packaged drinking milk can lead to milk production across the country, as well as higher prices.
