Russia: Compulsory registration of GMO products

A bill to introduce compulsory registration of all products containing GM-components is in the final stages of adoption by the Russian parliament. [...] “Already 10 varieties of genetically modified crops have passed certification in Russia. And these are only crops that have been in use for a long time abroad without any negative consequences for human health. I think that GM crops are already cultivated in Russia, but until now this area has not been under our control” - Nikolai Vlasov Deputy Head of Russian veterinary watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor report.
