After Profuse Contamination Found, Russia Bans US Corn & Soy, They “Pose a Real Threat to Russia”

Corn and soybeans from the United States will no longer be allowed to enter Russia as of February 15, because those foods failed to meet the country’s biological standards, announced Rosselkhoznadzor, Russia’s food and safety watchdog, on Wednesday.

According to RT, Rosselkhoznadzor discovered dry rot in U.S. corn, and weed seeds mixed with the U.S. soy.

“Since the products shipped from the United States pose a real threat to Russia, and the U.S. guarantees are not valid,” said the group’s spokesperson, Aleksey Alekseenko, “we reserve the right to introduce temporary restrictions on imports of U.S. corn and soybeans.”

U.S. officials have reportedly explained their evaluation of corn does not include a microbiological assessment of its condition.

“We were dumbfounded,” added Alekseenko. “Every batch of products should come with a microbiological certificate that guarantees food safety. It turns out the products are not being tested.”

As RT reported, Rosselkhoznadzor discovered 64 cases of bacterial contamination of soybeans in 2015, and four cases so far in 2016 — including “a bacteria non-existent in Russia.”

Russia previously banned genetically-modified food products and seeds in 2014, as Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at the time, “If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that.”

The U.S. soybean export to Russia between January and October 2015 totaled 300,000 pounds. Rosselkhoznadzor claimed the possible cost of quarantined food would approach  15 billion rubles, or $188 million.

Spread the Truth and Peace fight against this zionist Rothschild groups worldwide!! Since the Second World War, the US government is probably the greatest terrorist CRIMINAL of all times. It:
      BOMBED Hiroshima-Nagasaki (1945) 90,000–146,000 people killed in Hiroshima and 39,000–80,000 killed in Nagasaki
      BOMBED China in 1945-46 and again in 1950-53
      BOMBED Korea in 1950-53
      In Korea, nearly 3 million civilians were murdered by the USA and its allies. Civilians were murdered at No Gun Ri and many other places. The USA supported the fascist puppet regime in South Korea. The South Korean government carried out genocide against both North and South Korean people.
      BOMBED Guatemala in 1954, 1960, and 1967-69
      BOMBED Indonesia in 1958
      Up to one million innocent civilians died in Indonesia after the CIA put Suharto into power in Indonesia. At least one third of the population of East Timor died after the USA gave Suharto permission to invade that country.
      BOMBED Vietnam in 1961-73
      North Vietnam did not want a war. The US military-industrial complex made sure that there was a war. Through the Phoenix Program, hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese were tortured to death in “interrogation centers”. These torture centers were built by the United States. Women were always raped as part of the torture before being murdered. This terrorism, rape and mass-murder was the policy of the USA. The My Lai massacre itself was an operation of the Phoenix Program. Up to 5 million Vietnamese were killed in the Vietnam war.
      BOMBED Congo in 1964
      BOMBED Laos in 1964-73,The United States Air Force dropped the equivalent of a planeload of bombs every eight minutes for nine years on the people of Laos — from 1965 to 1973. OVER 2,000,000 TONS.This was some of the heaviest aerial bombardment in world history.Estimated civilian deaths: 500,000 men, women and children.

      On 9 11, 1973, Salvador Allende, the President of Chile, was killed in an American-sponsored coup, led by General Augusto Pinochet. Pinochet’s rise to power, organised by the CIA and Henry Kissinger, began nearly twenty years of military dictatorship that led to thousands of deaths. 30,000 people were massacred in the weeks following this September 11th, as Pinochet tried to wipe out those who opposed fascism.
      The Congo was given a military dictatorship thanks to the CIA assassination of Patrice Lumumba. The Congo conflict has led to at least 3 million deaths.
      In Cambodia, America (and Britain) backed Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot who killed nearly 2 million Cambodians.
      Brazil, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, Uruguay, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Haiti, Greece, Iran… All of these and more suffered from torture and death as a result of American ‘intervention.’
      Many thousands of Afghan and Pakistani civilians have died as a result of U.S. led air and drone strikes in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
      Many Germans died after the end of World War II due to the harsh policies of the USA. A survey conducted by the German government stated that some 1.4 million German prisoners died in captivity; many of them died in American captivity.
      “Since before the end of WWII the United States Corporate Mafia Government has been hell bent for total world domination, by any and all means necessary, no matter how brutal — including the slaughter of as many millions of innocent civilian men, women and children as it takes to accomplish that goal.” http://www.humanrights.com file a case inside America by your office and in the international criminal court and UN Human Rights Council to trial all elected American public officials who abused others and themselves worldwide to bring JUSTICE PEACE LOVE RULE OF LAW TO ALL VICTIMS of the WORLD !!

    • Shahariar Imam “Many Germans died after the end of World War II due to the harsh policies of the USA. A survey conducted by the German government stated that some 1.4 million German prisoners died in captivity; many of them died in American captivity.”<<< not sure Germany is the best example when it come to losing people in camps do you ?

    • Copy and paste, too long, didn’t read.

  • but of course they are pure as the water in Flint MI here in the US

  • Nolan Liner Conner Goodman

  • “Rosselkhoznadzor discovered dry rot in U.S. corn, and weed seeds mixed with the U.S. soy.”

    Of course, then you have to buy their Roundup to kill the weeds. The U.S. health system works the same way.

  • So, let me get this straight… Dangerous bacteria laden crops were made by the same company that gave us Agent Orange, and then sent to one of America’s “enemies”? Sounds perfectly normal, actually.

  • When a country with lots of starving people turns down your food time to re-address your policies on food.

  • Yuck! This is why I sooooo want to buy some land & grow my own food that way I know where it’s coming from.

  • But they will feed us this poison…good job

  • Aldi – Russia needs you!

  • pretty soon there will be nothing safe to eat anymore!

  • America trying to destroy russia with silent chemcal attack…

  • But it is just fine for us Americans to ingest. Keeps big Pharm rolling in the dough!

  • Don’t blame them one bit

  • Its OK Just send those products to Canada Trudeau government won’t object.

  • Monsanto obviously has paid off the proper Russian officials to make their way up to controlling agriculture like they have here in America.

  • There’s a huge problem with the American food farming factory/complex… All American beef comes with fecal matter now, and cattle cows are being fed chicken poop among some of the problems, and it’s all being censored in the American media.

    • As a rancher, I just want to point out, majority of your statements are not accurate. Not all beef has fecal matter in it, butcher houses are regulated to the gills, with inspectors on hand round the clock. If a carcass tests outside of the safety parameters, it is discarded & the producer can be fined & always eats the cost. If you look hard enough, you could probably find fecal matter in your produce as well because that’s what provides the nutrients for it to grow. In your next statement, you are referring to urea which is most frequently in a liquid feed form. Most farmers/ranchers & even a majority of feedlots either grow their grain, or buy right out of the field from the farmers around them & mix their own rations. It is more cost effective than the first. No chicken poop. You are more likely to find molasses in it. Just thought I’d give you some info straight from the horse’s mouth so to say.

    • Every day there’s always some kind of problem, always recalls of food in the America. The America Food Farming Factory is absolutely atrocious.

    • Some of that lies with the processing & distributing of it after these processes. Not always, sometimes mistakes are just made. Most don’t realize that less than 5% of the population in the U.S. Feeds the rest of the population & beyond. In a smaller area than even just 20 years ago. We have less farmers & ranchers feeding an ever-growing population. Learning to be more efficient with less & less to work with & stricter regulations is going to come with trial & error. Most people are 3-4 generations removed from farming & ranching & have no idea what it takes to produce it. What they don’t understand scares them. Having a plethora of misinformation doesn’t help either. With the phrase factory farming being tossed around, I just want to clarify that over 95% of farms/ranches are family owned. Most are generational & go to great extent to provide a safe & healthy product. As I am typing this I am out on herd watch with my cattle because we’ve had coyotes killing our calves. Will be out here till sun up & it’s 20° right now. Did the same thing yesterday & won’t see sleep until tonight. As with any industry, you always will have the ones that cut corners, but that is not the majority by any means. I think the bigger issue is people being disconnected with where there food comes from.

    • Again, I believe this is part of the problem. You can share all the links to,( majority of the time), overhyped & biased media reports you want. At the end of the day, I & people like me live it. I can tell you my family eats what we raise & secure in the knowledge it is healthy & safe. Why don’t you go check out & talk directly to the people that grow your food? Most all of them are excited to have an opportunity to connect with the consumer. And again, reread my previous post.

    • Danielle Hopfer “”For many farmers, the FTA [free-trade agreement] could be a death blow” Do you understand where I am coming from?
