MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's state food safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor has imposed a temporary ban on imports of Turkish aubergines starting from April 25, it said on Wednesday.

The suspension followed continued deliveries of batches of aubergines contaminated with "quarantine organisms," Rossekhoznadzor said.
