OREANDA-NEWS The import standards for products of plant origin, including fruits and vegetables, by individuals for personal use remain unchanged. This is stated in the message of the Federal Customs Service of Russia (FCS). 

The new rules for the import into the territory of Russia of plant products officially entered into force on August 19. According to the decree of the Russian government, no more than 5 kg of vegetables and fruits and no more than three bunches of flowers, each of which can have a maximum of 15 flowers, leaves or other parts of plants can be carried in baggage and hand luggage.
