THE EU AGAINST RUSSIAN BANS

 

The tension between the EU and Russia rises again regarding the "war of hams," because it is yet to be reached a bilateral agreement to remove the interdiction of European exports of pork previously imposed by Moscow in late January 2014.

It was actually in late January, after the identification of four Byelorussian boars affected by African swine influenza between Lithuania and Poland, that Moscow decided one-sidedness to block the pork imports from Europe.

The European Commission had already tuned to Geneva in April 2014 in order to solve the problem by bilateral discussions but the outcome was unsuccessful.

For these reason the European commission has decides to ask the WTO the intervention of a panel to solve this argue, which has an economic impact equal to 580 million euros on European exports to Russia on a total of 1, 4 billion euros per year for 750 thousand tons (almost 20% of Russian consumption, of which 3, 3% are products coming from Italy).

LA UE CONTRO I DIVIETI RUSSI

 La tensione tra la UE e la Russia sale nuovamente in merito alla "guerra dei prosciutti", poiché non è stata raggiunta ancora nessuna intesa bilaterale per rimuovere il bando delle esportazioni europee di carne di maiale imposto precedentemente da Mosca a fine Gennaio 2014.

E' proprio a fine Gennaio, successivamente all’identificazione di quattro cinghiali di origine Bielorussa affetti da febbre suina africana tra la  Lituania e la Polonia, che Mosca ha deciso unilateralmente di bloccare le importazioni di carni suine da tutta l’UE.

La commissione UE si era già  rivolta a Ginevra ad Aprile 2014, al fine di risolvere la problematica per tramite di  discussioni bilaterali, ma senza alcun risultato.

Quindi,  ha deciso di chiedere al WTO l’intervento di un panel per risolvere questa disputa il cui impatto economico pesa circa 580 milioni di euro sulle esportazioni europee verso la Russia  su un montefatturato di  1,4 miliardi di Euro annui per 750 mila tonnellate (pari circa al 20% dei consumi russi, di cui il 3,3% circa di prodotti provenienti dall'Italia).
