"I've given an order to do preparatory work for a meeting with leader of the Free Georgia movement Kakha Kukava and President of the Congress of National Associations of Russia Vladimir Khomeriki", - Onishenko is cited by Business-Georgia.
The ban on mineral water and wine import from Georgia has been set in Russia several years ago. According to the Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights, the quality of these products fails to meet the general standards.
It should be noted that earlier, Gennadiy Onishenko reported the facts of discovering a large contraband consignment of Borjomi mineral water in the territory of the country. The drink that has been prohibited because of its low quality gets in Russia by two ways.
"The volumes of the exported products are quite industrial", - the head of RAHCR says.
"An investigation revealed that this products get in the Russian territory from Byelorussia bearing excise stamps specifying the importer - Classic Wines LLC, Republic of Byelorussia, Minsk", - chief state health inspector of Russia added.
"Besides, bottles have been discovered bearing only national labels without any excise marks, which are illegally brought in the Russian territory due to inefficient work of the customs services; they are hidden under vegetables and fruit", - Gennadiy Onishenko remarked.
