Russians stole a Halal certificate from Ukrainians, - Said Ismagilov
This was announced by one of the Muslim spiritual leaders of Ukraine, the mufti of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Ukraine "UMMAH" Said Ismagilov on his Facebook page, Depo.ua reports.
"HALAL Global Ukraine Certification Center, which issues the international standard Halal certificate required for food exports to Muslim countries, complained to me about a forged certificate. They stated that AgroInvest, a Smolensk-based Russian company, used Photoshop to forge a certificate issued to one of the Ukrainian companies, and tried to sell its products to Muslim countries per the stolen document," Ismagilov wrote.
Ismagilov says that this absurd theft was exposed, and the Russians still have not answered the calls of the outraged Certification Center.
Though such situations have occurred before, according to the head of the Certification Center, it was the Russians' first attempt at forgery. They probably expected that Ukrainians would remain none the wiser.
Additionally, the head of the HALAL Global Ukraine Certification Center said that he does not cooperate with manufacturers, importers, exporters and other stakeholders from Russia or the occupied territories.
