MOSCOW, February 21 – RIA Novosti. The registration of flower products imported into Russia occurs without delay, according to the website of the Federal Customs Service (FCS) of Russia.
“The registration of flowers imported into Russia takes place without delays, despite the record volume of incoming shipments,” the statement says.
Information about the alleged delays in customs clearance of flower products and a possible shortage of flowers distributed by a number of media outlets does not correspond to reality, the department notes.
“So, in the period from 15 to 20 February 2021 in Russia as a whole, the centers of electronic declaration (ECD) released more than 1,453 tons of cut flowers and buds – 2.5 times more than in the same period of 2020 (592 tons) and 2.3 times more than in the same period in 2019 (635 tons) “, – added in the message.
It is clarified that in the Moscow Regional CED and at the actual control posts, the number of clearance inspectors has been significantly increased, and additional measures have been taken to minimize the release time. “As a result, the goods are released on the same day,” is added in the message.
