81 kilos of poultry meat, 67 kilos of speck, 87 kilos of pork meat, 64 kilos of sausage, 170 chicken eggs, 26 kilos of dairy products, 22 kilos of rabbit meat, 5 kilos of mutton, 8 kilos of beef and other products carried in bags and car trunks were denied entry into Crimea by Russian food safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor. Rosselkhoznadzor also stopped 13 dogs, three cats, one parrot, four ferrets and a staffed marten from being brought into Crimea.

Due to restrictions imposed on importation of animal products to Crimea by Russian occupation authorities, the said shipments were sent back to mainland Ukraine.
