It has begun: 70 kgs of French pate confiscated from Russian tourists



2014/08/22 • Russia

Russian tourists failed to take 70 kgs of French pate by car from France to Russia.

As is reported, customs servicemen confiscated duck, pheasant and wild boar pate at the border control checkpoint within 200 km of St. Petersburg and sent it back to France.

On August 7 Russia banned supplies of veal, pork, poultry, cheese, fruit and milk from the countries of the European Union, the US, Australia, Canada and Norway in response to economic sanctions against Russia because of the events in Ukraine.

It seems this is the first harbinger of the new era of “food tourism” in Russia. It seems that the “black importer” profession will once more become an integral part of the Russian market.

    LOL – Although I can imagine the tourists using the word I actually think the report means and refers to “DUCK, pheasant, and wild boar pate” and not the word stated instead of ‘DUCK’. :o)
    Better luck (notice the ‘l’ there) next time for the black market ‘tourists’. :o)

      Russia will hopefully turn out to be like north korea, but at least russians can keep drinking cheap vodka to help them eat dirt for supper.

    Oh man, why don’t they have some native english speaker proof read their articles?
    What the duck, eh?

    I can’t imagine what animal organ is required for f**k pate? But, thank you for making me laugh so much. It certainly beats the gloomy nature of the rest of the news. With the French, you never know what to expect on your plate.

    This will definitely open up the market for the black marketers. Russians have plenty of experience with that. Russians with money will be able to access all of the European foods that they desire, for a price. For the rest of the people/zombies in russia, it will be a steady diet of reindeer and empty store shelves. Enjoy it you russian swine, you deserve it.
