Onishchenko surprised at media attention to the issue of return of Georgian wine to Russia2013-02-15 13:31
The media pays unreasonably high attention to the issue of the return of Georgian wine to Russia. According to the News-Georgia, this was stated by the head of Rospotrebnadzor, chief sanitary doctor Gennady Onishchenko.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"This is clearly biased attention and interest, since the Georgian wines have never had and will never obtain dominant influence on the Russian wine market. This is due to the fact that in the best of times, Georgia was producing nine million dal of wine as a whole. They have small area; but it is really the cradle of wine", Onishchenko said.
He said that tonight was going to listen to a report of experts of the department to make a decision on the date of the inspection visit to Georgia. The head of Rospotrebnadzor again complained about the slowness of the Georgians.
Recall, last week, Georgia and Russia launched formal negotiations on the restoration of the supply of Georgian wines and other products to the Russian market. This was the first such contacts since 2006, when the export of Georgian wine and mineral water to Russia was banned.
On January 29, chief state sanitary doctor of Russia Gennady Onishchenko, the head of Rospotrebnadzor, sees no serious obstacles for the return of Georgian wine to the Russian market, besides the political ones.
