Russians are allowed to eat only from “Russian Eden”: Putin keep destroying sanctions products
This weekend 4 tons of foods were destroyed in Crimea
During this weekend Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (RFSVPS) destroyed four tons of "banned for import products" in annexed Crimea, krymr.com. 2.4 tons of peppers, 1.3 tons of lettuce of Dutch origin (imported from mainland Ukraine), 102 kg of cherry tomatoes from Italy, 143 kg of celery from Germany, as well as leek, broccoli, and chili pepper were steamrolled.
Putin’s public display of his commitment to one-year-old ban on Western and Ukrainian products seems to be ridiculous in terms of Crimean and Russian recession.
July 29 Russian President Putin signed an order to destroy products imported from western countries. The very day when the order came into force (August 6), Russia steamrolled near 319 tons of vegetables, fruit, meat, and diary products.
People from all over the world are signed a petition urging the Russian government not to destroy the foods but give to the poor instead.
Putin’s public demonstration of his commitment to one-year-old ban on Western and Ukrainian products gives the impression of (at least) unreasonable in terms of Crimean and Russian recession. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, Putin seems to be too big for these "biopolitical" boots.
