Sometimes it seems our country has traded places with the cold war communists of days past. We may not agree with everything that Putin does in the name of Russia, but at least he is willing to do what our President is not in the US – protect his people from genetically modified foods.
Putin believes that he can keep GMOs out of his country, even while staying in compliance with the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) commandments. In a meeting addressing the members of the Board of the Russian Federation Council he stated:
“We need to properly construct our work so that it is not contrary to our obligations under the WTO. But even with this in mind, we nevertheless have legitimate methods and instruments to protect our own market, and above all citizens.”
He reminded the board that is wasn’t so long ago that the issue of GMOs was addressed. He also pointed out that with current government regulations, it wasn’t even certain how much genetically altered food or seed had already entered Russia.
The WTO is a big pusher of genetically modified crops. However, under the current provisions of the organization, and admitted on their own site:

“Countries could also argue that relevant scientific evidence is insufficient, and adopt a provisional measure according to Article 5.7, based on the available pertinent information. They would then be obliged to actively seek the additional information needed for a more objective risk assessment, and to review the measure within a reasonable period of time. What might be “reasonable” would have to be determined on a case-by-case basis.”
Some countries, though, are not given entrance to the WTO based on their refusal of GMOs. Serbia is one of them. This is a private organization which, like the biotech companies currently trying to dominate agriculture, have undue influence and power over world industry. A three-man tribunal held by the WTO in Geneva Switzerland almost a decade ago, for example, was heralded as a warning to small farmers and historic food-growing traditions that shunned genetically modified crops and overturned moratoriums on GM planting:
“[this meeting]. . .could open the floodgates to the forced introduction of genetically-manipulated plants and food products– GMO, or genetically-modified organisms as they are technically known– into the world’s most important agriculture production region, the European Union.”
Sure enough, this has come to be true.
Meanwhile, our politicians are supporting the WTO, Monsanto, and Dow, et al., and the crazy, paid-off scientists who have eaten too much of their own GMO to know their rear-ends from a carrot top are still pushing their wares, though it causes cancer and reproductive failure. At least Putin is protecting his people from poison.

Russia said they would be totally organic in 2015 I believe it was a couple weeks after Dr. Seralini came public with his 2 year study on NK603 Maize. LOL I guess it wasn’t hollow words like some one else we all know!!
BTW What ever happened to this?
Russian researchers will stream a live experiment to show the effects of GMO feed on rats.

I’ve always admired and appreciated Vladimir Putin for his many good qualities. He’s taken a courageous stand in defending his people and animals over and over again for the betterment of their lives. Keeping all of life from harm the best he can because he sincerely cares. He’s a man of peace and love and I truly dislike the lies said about him.
He’s taken a stand on protecting our honeybees as well. How many other men and leaders care this much? none
Russia is said to be doing their own scientific tests with rats regarding GMOs safety. Vladimir Putin has my respect and admiration.
About time the Russians stood tall since Russia had suffered much under communism, exported by the criminal Anglo-American banking oligarchy empire, who – guess what – are now promoting GMOs. Looks like we can trace the world’s filth to its original source.
The Russians are the ones who will continue putting up space stations and vehicles that will send men as far as Saturn, long after ISS is sent crashing back to Earth after 2020, so they will need clear headed scientists not poisoned by GMOs to get those rocket engine hydraulics right.
I admire him also for the qualities you have stated.
[ Smiles ] Splendid move by President Vladimir Putin.
All political leaders can follow his example by not allowing GMOs into their country!
http://www.gmo-free-regions.org/typo3temp/pics/ef19a3781a.png i’d like to add to this map that it’s totally wrong about Romania. Although it is legal to use 3 types of GMOs, it doesn’t mean anyone actually planting them. You see, we’ve always had top quality agrotehnics and as a result we have great strains of every crop especially adapted to long -20C winters and hot +30C 5 months of summer . A few hundred hectares of GMO soy we tried out for a couple of years and the results were average at best. Score 1 for the Rebel Alliance I guess.
In the meantime…all Western Leaders,legislation with the backing of our (iL)Legal system is bending over backwards to push and support the deliberate poisoning of it’s people by GMO produced toxic sludge…
Putin for world president, all the other logger head of state, arsonist, war criminals to the indefinite prison sentence in Gitmo for treason for knowingly conspire against their citizen in the name of greed.
don’t eat gmo crap we deserve better than what our criminal politicians give us DE,ELECT THE TRAITORS TO HUMANITY
“Putin Rocks” I respect and admire this courageous leader. He is with the Light and openly demonstrates compassion for his country, the people and planet. Our leaders just brush important issues of the people under the carpet or are so controlled they cannot speak for fear of reprisal or death by sniper.
Global March Against Monsanto – Saturday, May 24, 2014. Having trouble posting links but Google it to find the event nearest you and join millions worldwide marching to take back our food!!
PUTIN has got it right GMO’s is a declaration of war because we all know that they are part of a GENOCIDAL DEPOPULATION PROGAME of the NEW WORLD ORDER.
At least Putin is protecting his people from poison.?? At least? But isn t our health the most valuable thing we possess?. I dont care what the rotten media says about Puttin, in my book he is on the whitest pages just for this.
Gee, wish we had a leader that cared about his people like that.
Putin is very close to acquiring the Mandate Of Heaven.
I never in my 60 years thought I’d see a Russian President so popular among Americans!
I beleive Putin’s rise in popularity, this is one avenue that makes the man appear in greatness!! But beware he being charismatic and saying the right things, tugging at the heart strings of the world, beyond the mask still lies an evil agenda, that will not be exposed until he gains the power and influence to control! Once the momentum shifts in his favour for more world domination, watch as God puts a hook in his nose and is lead to move on Israel! and take the spoils, Ezekiel 38 explains the outcome, just as God raised up Pharaoh of Egypt for His purpose, I think Putin is being raised up to greatness for the same reason! To deceive the very elect, if possible.
