A group of senators from Russia’s Federation Council have introduced a bill seeking the prohibition of the trafficking and importation of products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Russia.
The senators propose the adoption of certain amendments to be incorporated into Russia’s law "On the quality and safety of food."
The Federation Council members believe that another prerequisite for the safe circulation of GMOs would be the active participation of scientists. If the scientific community can prove that GMO foods are safe for human consumption, the proposed ban would theoretically be lifted.
