A number of Telegran channels, websites and even the media on the «holy eye» spread the news about the «mass poisoning» of the Crimeans with Melitopol cherries. We do not give links, so as not to spread outright lies (you will find it yourself in search engines). But here’s what’s interesting, the primary source was one odious Telegran channel with the word «Donbass» (oh, there are a lot of such «true news»). There was even an illustration in the publication — a certain document «On the seizure of low-quality products» from .02. 2022 №82—00/-8086-2022 allegedly signed by the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Crimea, Natal Penkovskaya.
As you understand, both the document and the news itself are fake. Malicious, aimed at creating panic and undermining trade and agricultural cooperation between Crimea and the liberated regions of Ukraine. No mass poisonings have been recorded in Crimea. Especially «Melitopol cherries». Here is what the Interregional Department of Rospotrebnadzor officially states about this:
In the register of outgoing documents of the Interregional Department for 1. 06. 2022 registration number «06-00-02/04-8086-2022» missing.
The information provided in the fake letter about cases of mass poisoning of citizens with fruits, including cherries, sold in markets and retail chains on the territory of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol does not correspond to reality. The absence of the above and other circumstances does not give grounds for taking measures in accordance with paragraph 1 of Article 24 of the Federal Law «On the Quality and Safety of Food Products.»
Please note that all information on the adoption of urgent measures to withdraw products is promptly posted on the official website of the Interregional Department of Rospotrebnadzor for the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol 82.rospotrebnadzor.ru… Given the above, in order to obtain reliable information, we recommend that citizens use only the official website of the Interregional Administration, as well as the official websites of the executive bodies of state power of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.
Crimean doctors and sanitary doctors emphasize: not only «mass» and isolated cases of fruit poisoning («Melitopol cherries») have not yet been recorded.
