Ban on the export of tannery goods extended

The Russian government has extended the ban on the export of semi-finished tannery goods. The regulation has already been published on the official legal information web portal.

It should be noted that the prohibition is set for a period up to 1st August this year. The authority stressed that such a measure is necessary to ensure the state defense order.

It will be recalled that the restrictions on exports of tannery products were first announced in October 2014. The decision was taken in order to prevent a critical shortage in the domestic market of tannery resources.
