April 18, 2006 -- Just weeks after banning imports of Georgian wine, Russia has moved against imports of a number of types of Georgian mineral water.
Authorities in the Moscow region on April 18 impounded a batch of Georgia's "Nabeghlavi" mineral water, after announcing recently they were considering a ban on "Borjomi," Georgia's best-known brand of mineral water.
Russia says the products do not meet health standards.
