MOSCOW - Russia will lift a ban on imports of vegetables from Italy and Hungary next week, Russia's consumer protection agency said on Friday.

Russia banned imports of raw vegetables from the European Union on June 2 due to a deadly E.coli outbreak. Moscow later agreed to drop the ban provided it received safety guarantees and has allowed imports from several EU nations.

Russia's consumer protection agency said imports from Italy and Hungary would be allowed from July 25. Russia has already allowed Poland, Belgium, Spain, Denmark, Greece, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands to resume vegetable exports to Russia based on safety certificates.
