Russia Bans Beef and Pork, Replaces with Crocodile

(Moscow, Russia)
Russia's food safety watchdog has approved the import of crocodile meat from the Philippines to replace the beef and pork banned under Moscow's restrictions on foods from Western countries, a news report said.

The veterinary and sanitary inspection agency, Rosselkhoznadzor, has added a Filipino producer of frozen crocodile meat, Coral Agri-ventures Farm, to its list of companies allowed to supply food to Russia's markets, the Interfax news agency reported Thursday.

After Russia banned Western food imports in response to sanctions against Moscow for its policies on Ukraine, Russian officials have also visited India to consider imports of buffalo meat after dismissing it for years over quality concerns.
No burgers, no BBQ ribs, how will the people survive?

In a starving nation, importing low fat meats is sure to please. It's... good to be king.

No skin off my nose. Tyrants seem to be preferred in Russia. And, hopefully, meat prices could take a minor hit. All good, all good, all in a day's work.

Just read in Business Insider, they made it or tried to make it as a bad thing, but hell I've eaten it, in fact I went looking for it.
