Qingdao City Customs discovered live ants and their eggs in a package sent from Australia

The customs service of Qingdao City, Shandong Province / Eastern China / has delayed a package from Australia containing dozens of live ants and eggs of these insects. This became known from the document promulgated by customs.
On Wednesday, June 5, customs officers examined the suspicious package with an X-ray machine and found 14 live ants and 20 ant eggs in four glass test tubes, which were declared as personal belongings.
A preliminary check revealed that, among the insects seized, one individual belongs to the species of black myrmecia pilosula (Bulldog ants) and 13 - to the species Iridomyrmex purpureus (meat ants), which are found in Australia.
The black ant bulldog, whose length reaches 2,5 cm, is a poisonous giant ant species. According to customs officials, the penetration of these alien species creates potential risks for the ecological environment and leads to economic losses as they multiply.
In accordance with Chinese law, the import of live insects into the country is prohibited, and special quarantine certificates and permits are required to conduct research.
To date, quarantine processing of seized ants has been completed.

Customs drives depressed

Ordering medicine abroad was regarded as drug smuggling.

The Ural Customs suspect Yekaterinburg resident Darya Belyayeva, who ordered a pack of antidepressant "Elontril" from Poland, in drug smuggling. The customs expert came to the conclusion that the substance bupropion contained in the Polish medicine is a “derivative” of the illicit drug ephedrine. A girl who takes anti-depressants for the treatment of a psychiatric illness faces up to 20 years in prison. The psychiatrists interviewed by “Kommersant” said that this case is widely discussed in the professional environment, since anti-depressants with bupropion “take in Russia thousands of completely law-abiding patients, including children”. Lawyers also do not see a crime in buying medicine and note that "the uncertainty of the Russian anti-drug legislation allows fabricating criminal cases from scratch."
As Ms. Belyaeva’s lawyer, Irina Rozhkova, told Kommersant, a 24-year-old girl was diagnosed with schizotypal personality disorder. “The psychiatrist prescribed antidepressants for her, and then told her about the drug bupropion, a very good medicine that is not for sale in Russia, so patients order it from abroad,” said Ms Rozhkova. At the end of March, the girl ordered a package of Elontril tablets containing bupropion from Poland. 8 April she came to take the drug to the post office in Yekaterinburg. There, she was met by customs officers who reported that there were questions to the pills and they needed to be checked.
A specialist in customs forensic services admitted that bupropion is not on any list of narcotic drugs.
However, he suggested that it “can be considered as a product of the formal replacement of a hydrogen atom by a chlorine atom” in the formula of ephedrine, a narcotic substance prohibited in the Russian Federation. According to Irina Rozhkova, the deputy head of Koltsovo customs opened a criminal case on two counts: the illegal purchase of drugs (part 2 Art. 228 of the RF Criminal Code) and drug smuggling (part 3 Art. 229.1 of the Criminal Code), both on a large scale. “Daria was questioned as a suspect, but she hasn’t been charged yet,” the lawyer said.
This case is now being actively discussed in the medical community, psychiatrist Elisha Osin told “Kommersant”. “Thousands of Russians take antidepressants with bupropion, they are also ordered from abroad in the same way,” the doctor explained. “This criminal case threatens a large number of law-abiding families who buy it for children with ADHD. I myself know dozens of such patients. ” According to him, bupropion does not give an intoxicating effect, “it is useless to take it or sell it as a recreational drug, it is a medicine, an antidepressant.”
Ivan Martynikhin, a member of the executive committee of the Russian Society of Psychiatrists, told “Kommersant” that bupropion has almost no analogues, “for example, it is very important for patients with bipolar depression — other drugs cause side effects up to suicidal risk, but this one does not.”
Before 2016, bupropion was on the Russian drug list, but then the manufacturing company left the Russian market and revoked the license.
Since then, it is not sold in official pharmacies, and psychiatrists have no right to officially appoint it. “But I can tell patients about its existence and, at their request, advise on how to take it,” the psychiatrist Osin said.
Patients purchase it through websites with dietary supplements or order directly from manufacturers in different countries. Foreign pharmaceutical companies produce bupropion tablets under various names: “Zyban”, “Elontril”, “Wellbutrin”. “I have many patients taking these drugs. If bupropion is banned, there will be nothing to replace, says psychiatrist Martynikhin. I am not ready to comment on a particular case, but it is obvious to me that this drug has not been subject to any restrictions for years. And the fact that a person with a psychiatric disorder is trying to recognize a drug smuggler is a blatant situation. ”
“This whole situation is a very vivid example of the problems that exist in Russian anti-drug legislation,” said Arseny Levinson, an expert at the Institute of Human Rights, legal adviser on drug policy. The law has the concept of “drug derivatives” - these are substances that may be a new drug, created by changing the chemical formula of the old. These "derivatives" are not included in the list of prohibited substances, but they will also be considered a drug. The problem is that the list of these "derivatives" does not exist, says Mr. Levinson. Moreover, it all depends on the expertise: there are examples when two different experts, having studied one substance, come to opposite conclusions. “It turns out that an ordinary person without a higher chemical education cannot know in any way whether he bought harmless pills or“ derivatives of narcotic substances, ”the lawyer says.“ The legislation unleashes the police to fabricate criminal cases from scratch. ”

Dodon hopes to discuss the abolition of customs duties with Putin

Moldovan President Igor Dodon said that he had received an invitation to a meeting of the leaders of the EAEU member countries, where he hopes to discuss with the Russian leader Vladimir Putin the abolition of duties for Moldovan manufacturers.
Russia, with 1 January, abolished duties on imports of a range of goods from Moldova for half a year
“At the end of May, if I’m not mistaken - 29, Kazakhstan will host a meeting of leaders of the EAEU member countries, I have already received an oral invitation. There will be Vladimir Putin, I hope that I can discuss with him the issue of the abolition of duties for Moldovan producers, "- said Dodon during the" Straight Line "on the TV channel Accent TV.
Moldovan President expects that the Russian authorities will agree to extend the period of the abolition of customs duties. Dodon also expects to touch on this topic in an interview with the Russian leader in June during an economic forum in St. Petersburg.
According to Dodon, the situation is complicated by the fact that there is still no government in the country after the parliamentary elections held in February for 24, whose competence includes economic issues.
In the elections in Moldova that took place on February 24, the Socialist Party, which supports the current President Dodon and advocates closer interaction with Russia and the EEU, received 35 mandates, the Democratic Party of Moldova led by Vladimir Plahotniuc - 30 mandates , the party "Shore" - seven. Also three independent candidates entered the parliament. In the 26 seat of the legislature, none of the parties had enough votes to independently form a parliamentary majority, which means the need to form a coalition to form a government. If the deputies are not able to agree until June 101, then Moldavian President Igor Dodon can initiate the procedure for early elections.

The list of exempted products will expand

Fuel, motor oils and lubricants intended for ships and drilling rigs are proposed to be exempted from customs duties. We are talking about fuel, which are exported outside Russia - in its exclusive economic zone, on the continental shelf or in the Russian sector of the day of the Caspian Sea.
Benefits will be provided if such products are intended for vessels from which geological exploration, exploration and production of hydrocarbons, as well as accompanying support ships and search and rescue ships are conducted. The owner of the license for the listed work in the preparation of the customs declaration is obliged to give a written commitment to the targeted spending of exported goods, and then confirm this fact.
The law, which prepared the Government of the Russian Federation, specifies the limiting volumes of fuels and lubricants that are not subject to duty:
1000 tons - for one ship gross tonnage up to 4000 reg.t; 2000 tons - for one vessel with gross tonnage from 4000 to 7000 reg.t; 4000 tons - for one vessel with gross tonnage from 7000 to 10000 reg.t; 5000 tons - for one ship gross tonnage from 10000 reg.t.
The law establishing these tariff concessions was adopted by the State Duma in the third reading on April 18. The Federation Council will consider it during the April plenary session of 22.

Large-scale customs reforms carried out in the EAEU

In the Eurasian Economic Union (Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia), large-scale customs reforms have been carried out since 2018, as reported by the information and analytical portal belmy.by, RK-News reports. These reforms provide for a reduction in direct communication between business representatives and customs officers, and will use electronic channels more often for processing goods passing across borders, which will reduce queues and the collection of documentation for declaration. Meanwhile, the first virtual customs and remote declaration centers have already started their work. In addition, an experiment was conducted by the customs authorities of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan, during which they monitored the transit of goods using electronic navigation seals. This year, similar measures are planned to be carried out jointly by the Belarusian and Russian customs services, as the head of the Federal Customs Service of Russia V. Bulavin informed. Such navigation seals store complete information about the goods being moved, including deviations from the route, hacking attempts, etc. At the same time, the Federal Customs Service of Russia and the Customs Committee of Belarus plan to implement joint measures to combat gray supplies: products will be tracked from customs to cash register retail checks.

Corruption scandal in the capital of the Far East: customs fights with officials

Customs again in the center of the scandal ... but from the wrong side. People in epaulets accuse officials of corruption, and an elite construction site is accused of illegally obtaining a building permit. With such an appeal, the Vladivostok branch of the Russian Customs Academy appealed to the prosecutor's office and the governor of Primorsky Krai, DEITA.RU became known.
Construction began last fall a few meters from the training building of the Customs Academy - two 24-storey buildings with underground parking, Region Stroy LLC began building on Strelkovaya, 16в. The fact that the construction is in “inadmissible proximity” to the educational buildings of the PTA and interferes with learning is another half the trouble, the fact that customs officials are worrying about the foundation of their academic building is also. The management of the Vladivostok branch of the Customs Academy suspects that the building permit was issued illegally. The applicants stated their arguments in the appeal to the prosecutor's office of the Primorsky Territory (the document is available to the editors).
It says that the land plot was leased in May 2014 by the Department of Land and Property Relations of the Territory represented by Natalia Sokolova to complete the construction of the unfinished construction object (residential building) by the degree of readiness 5,4%
However, on the land plot located opposite the building of the educational and administrative building of the Vladivostok branch of the Russian Customs Academy, there are no unfinished projects, the applicants believe. According to the PTA staff, trees have been growing on this site for many years, and construction work has never been done.
In this regard, the Vladivostok branch of the PTA asks the prosecutor's office to check the legality of the lease agreement and to verify the presence of a corruption component in the actions of the officials who leased the land plot.
Appeals were also sent to the administration of Primorsky Krai, the administration of Vladivostok, the transport prosecutor's office, the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and other supervisory and regulatory authorities (copies of the letters are available to the editors). However, verbose correspondence with officials has not yielded any results.
The past administration of the city of Vladivostok, which issued the construction permit in April of 2018, insists that all the “documents are checked for compliance with the current legislation” and the section holds “Completion of construction of unfinished construction projects in multi-storey car parks along Strelkovaya Street 18 by reconstructing them. ” Additionally emphasizing that the contractor did not issue permits for the demolition of green spaces.
The editors of DEITA.RU were also curious and looked at google maps - indeed, only forest is in the pictures. It is noteworthy that the former director of the land department of the region, Natalya Sokolova, who now works in the mayor's office, which appears in this case, has a rather rich history of such litigation in all kinds of "incomplete". How the new land scandal in the Far Eastern capital will end is unknown. However, this is not the first such case — a similar scheme can be traced in the land scandal of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, where one of the contractors also received a land plot for the completion of the unfinished construction project. However, space images for some reason do not display those. Probably the satellite was wrong ...
