While the European Union has decided to label Israeli goods generated in settlements, Russia will be “opening its doors” to importing Israeli poultry products, the Agriculture Ministry said on Monday.

“I see great importance in expanding Israeli chicken exports to Russia,” said Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel. “This is another example, in light of the EU boycott, of the government’s activity to open exports to other countries.”

After a lengthy period of examinations that began four years ago, Russia has completed its checks and approved the import of Israeli poultry products into the country, under the supervision of Veterinary Services at the Israeli Agriculture Ministry, said a ministry statement released on Monday.

Russia now joins many Western countries that enable the import of Israeli meat products, including the United States, Canada, South Africa and 28 EU nations, the statement added.
