In Russia in 2016, the law prohibiting the cultivation and breeding in the country genetically modified plants and animals, except for scientific works.All imported seeds are now tested for GMO content. To sell lots or to sow without test will not be allowed. To control this will be the Rosselkhoznadzor. The CPS will assess the impact of genetically modified organisms and products on the health of Russians. If it is negative, the Agency may begin to withdraw the certificate of state registration of such products and organisms.Meanwhile, in Germany from 1 January 2017 also prohibited to grow genetically-modified crops, Germany in September 2015, said that, under the new EU rules will ban the cultivation of GMO crops. Germany along with France are the most solid and consistent opponents of the spread of GMO crops in the EU. The ban on GMOs – good or obscurantism — debatable, causing a bitter controversy between supporters and opponents of GMOs. In my opinion, the only way to find out how GMOs actually affect living organisms, is to conduct a full research of international level.
