Russia upholds ban on Polish meat
by UPI

ATHENS, Greece - The European Union Sunday failed to convince Russia to lift its ban on Polish meat imports.

The negotiations between EU Health Commissioner Markos Kyprianou and Russian Agriculture Minister Alexei Gordeyev ended with each side reiterating its position but no joint solution being found, the Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported.

Russia imposed the ban in 2005 after claiming Poland was putting unsanitary meat from other countries into food it was exporting to Russia.

The European Union found no grounds for an embargo on Polish meat, but did determine Poland deviated from European regulations on meat exports, RIA Novosti said.

Polish authorities claim the Russian ban is retaliation for Poland's support of the 2004 "orange revolution" in Ukraine, which brought pro-Western forces to power.
