Russia Ends Production of Genetically Modified Food

Sputnik — 18.09.2015

Russia’s government has decided against producing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the country’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Friday.

The deputy prime minister underscored the need to draw a “clear distinction” between this decision and science and research projects in fields such as medicine.

“As for genetically modified organisms, we have decided against the use of GMO in food production,” Dvorkovich said.

A law requiring manufacturers to label products whose GMO content is higher than 0.9 percent has been in effect since 2007.
