Russia has partially lifted its ban on some European vegetables imposed during the e-coli scare.
Belgian and Dutch produce will again be allowed into the country.
However German produce remains excluded, and Spain, Poland, Lithuania, Denmark and the Czech republic are on a “waiting list”.
Russia and the European Union signed a deal last week agreeing conditions for the resumption of EU fresh vegetable imports to Russia, a trade that earned EU producers some 600 million euros last year.
The European Commission said each EU state exporting fresh vegetables to Russia would have to certify, for a limited period, the origin of the produce and the absence of the E.coli strain responsible for the outbreak in northern Germany.
