Russian government approves bill banning genetically modified crops | Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI).

MOSCOW, January 30 (RAPSI) – Russia’s government has approved a bill proposed by the Ministry of Science and Education prohibiting the cultivation of genetically modified crops and organisms, RIA Novosti reported on Friday.

Supplementary materials say that the bill “would prohibit the cultivation of genetically modified plants and animals in Russia with the exception of expert evaluation and research.”

The bill’s authors propose amending the laws on state regulation of genetic engineering, seed growing and environmental protection and the Code of Administrative Offences “to improve state regulation of genetic engineering in order to minimize the risk to human beings and the environment.”

The bill would also introduce “measures to monitor the introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the environment and the influence of GMOs and products produced with the use of or containing GMOs on humans and the environment, and to oblige the importers of GMOs and products containing them to register these products.”

The government would have the authority to prohibit the import of said organisms and products following monitoring. Violators of the regulations for using GMOs would be subject to administrative penalties.
