Did you think Russian Cheese Party, a festive ceremony of steamrollering tons of "contraband" cheese and destroying fruit with tractors was the peak of inscrutability? Mystifying Russian soul is not so easy to be understood. This time Russia decided to destroy the school uniforms imported from Сhina, UNN.
The "Society for the Protection of Consumer Rights" laywer Alisher Zakhidov said that big parties of school uniforms come to Russian market as "shadow export goods". "The goods, which failed to meet the sanitary and epidemiological norms and safety standards, are to be burned," he claimed.
"State control of the Rospotrebnadzor [Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Well-Being] must be timely and tough. These kind of clothes should be immediately seized and burned, and the traders should be fined with the maximum penalty because they cause a threat to the health of children," stated the expert. According to him, the fines for companies, which sell school uniforms from China, may reach up to $4.35 thousand.
