This year’s warm weather has contributed to an earlier flower season, which has already started in late January. Entrepreneurs import mimosa to all regions of the country. Citizens bring flowers in small bouquets for personal purposes.
The delicate and fragile mimosa flowers require careful handling during transport. For transportation, the mimosa is packed in boxes and transported in low-temperature conditions. The flower load passes the control in the order of priority, in the shortest possible time.
Checking compliance with customs legislation when importing flowers into Russia, Krasnodar customs officers stop various crimes. They are mainly associated with attempts by individuals to import flowers that significantly exceed the norms established by law.
So, since February of this year, 18 cases of administrative offenses have been initiated for the facts of illegal movement of flower products across the customs border under Article 16.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of Russia “Failure to comply with the established prohibitions and (or ) restrictions”. Suppression of the illegal importation of more than one ton of floral products. Let’s remember that in 2022 some 150 tons of mimosa were imported.
As previously reported by RG, the first commercial shipment of 125 kilograms of silver acacia was imported in late January. In flower shops, mimosa, as a rule, will not be seen, only in markets and in places of spontaneous trade. In Abkhazia, mimosa flowers are rarely sold in bouquets, and why, if it’s easier to pick them from a tree.
