Italian Ambassador to Russia Pasquale Terracciano, in an interview with Forbes, said that, in his opinion, Parmesan “was mistakenly included in the package of counter-sanctions against fresh products.”
“We are talking about Parmesan cheese, which, in my opinion, was mistakenly included in the package of counter-sanctions against fresh products, since it is not fresh cheese, it is lactose-free,” the ambassador said.
According to him, Rospotrebnadzor is currently studying this issue.
“We do not want the counter-sanctions to be canceled, since we understand that they should be a symmetrical response to the sanctions. But we would like this technical error to be corrected, ”said Terracciano.
According to RBC, commenting on this statement by the Italian ambassador, Rospotrebnadzor reported that the department’s responsibilities “do not include making changes to the list of sanctioned goods.”
