The need for such a meeting was caused by a sharp increase in cases of violations of international and Russian legislation in the supply of plant products to the territory of the Russian Federation from the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The meeting was attended by:

- the Rosselkhoznadzor representative: Head of the Directorate for Phytosanitary Surveillance and Seed Control Irina Andreyevskaya, Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor administration for the Orenburg Oblast Sergey Ryabykh;

At the beginning of the meeting Irina Andreyevskaya thanked Almabek Mars for the invitation to the Republic of Kazakhstan, for his personal participation in the meeting, and expressed her hope for a constructive dialogue that would lead to the desired results of both sides.

The main issue of the working meeting was the discussion of a set of measures aimed at preventing violations of international and Russian legislation in the field of plant quarantine, when transporting quarantined products between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan, and preventing the supply of "sanctions" products to the territory of Russia from Kazakhstan under the guise of authorized countries.

The Rosselkhoznadzor also addressed the issue of a second quarantine phytosanitary control carried out by the Committee of "sanctions" transit commodities that passed through the Russian part of state border of the Eurasian Economic Union.

It was noted that over 9 months of 2017, over 100,000 tons of fruits and vegetables originating  from Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, etc. were moved transit to Kazakhstan through the automobile checkpoints in the Pskov Oblast.

The Rosselkhoznadzor submitted the information about transit of such goods to the Kazakh side and asked the Committee to confirm the registration of these products at delivery points.

During the meeting, the Kazakh side also provided information on cases of violations of international legislation in the field of plant quarantine during exporting of quarantine products to Kazakhstan by the Russian economic entities.

Supply of plant products without phytosanitary certificates made up 95% of all violations.

The Russian side provided information on the measures taken for each specific case and proposed to apply the measures specified in the Decision No. 318 of the EAEC Commission, namely, destruction, to violators who transport quarantine products without phytosanitary certificates.

During the meeting, the Rosselkhoznadzor submitted documents to the Committee on all cases of violations for 2017.

The Kazakh side expressed its readiness to investigate each case of violations before February 1, 2018, and to provide information on registration of transit cargo at delivery points.

At the end of the meeting, the participants thanked each other for an open and constructive dialogue, Almabek Mars agreed that there are a lot of problems and they need to be resolved, and also noted the effectiveness of such meetings of the services and suggested holding the next meeting in February 2018 in Uralsk (Republic of Kazakhstan).

As a result, a protocol was drawn up, which indicated problematic issues and developed solutions, including the need to work in the “Argus-phito” and EASU information systems to track the movement of quarantined products on the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union
