维州西南一个肉类加工厂暂停向俄国出口羊肉,以此向俄国总统普京发出关于MH17空难的“强烈信号”。

位于Colac的澳洲羊肉集团多年来一直向俄国出口羔羊和成羊,公司的总经理John Verral说这对他们来说不是一个轻松易做的决定。

“澳洲羊肉集团要向俄国总统普京发出一个强烈的信号,我们作为一个澳洲公司对于MH17被击落以及在空难现场的后续工作的相关处理现状表示无法接受”, Verral在一项声明中说。

“这确实对我们的生意造成影响,但是我们相信我们必须站出来为在空难中丧生的澳洲同胞做些什么。据报道,他们死于由普京总统支持和武装的分裂分子之手”。

该公司说他们有几张长期订单在手,相关货品将转发到临近的目的地去。

澳洲羊肉集团每年处理最多可达170万只羔羊和成羊。他们还向中国,中东和东南亚出口。



MH17 crash: Victorian meat processor suspends exports to Russia in message to Putin

A meat processor in south-west Victoria has suspended lamb exports to Russia to send a "strong message" to the country's president Vladimir Putin over the MH17 plane disaster.

The Malaysia Airlines passenger jet was shot down by a ground-to-air missile over eastern Ukraine, killing all 298 passengers and crew including 37 Australians.

It is believed Russian-backed rebels shot the plane down and world leaders, including Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, have been critical of Russia's response to the tragedy.

The Australian Lamb Group, based at Colac, has been exporting lamb and mutton to Russia for many years, and its managing director John Verrall said the decision was not made lightly.

We must stand up for the Australians who have lost their lives at the hands of separatists reportedly armed and supported by president Putin.

"Australian Lamb Group wants to send a very strong message to the Russian president Mr Putin that we, as an Australian company will not abide the circumstances as they are currently unfolding with regard to the shooting down of flight MH17 and the recovery operations at the crash site," Mr Verrall said in a statement.

"It does have repercussions for our business, but we believe that we must stand up for the Australians who have lost their lives at the hands of separatists reportedly armed and supported by president Putin."

The company said it had several standing orders which would be redirected to alternative destinations as part of the decision.

The Australian Lamb Group, which processes up to 1.7 million lamb and mutton each year, also exports to China, the Middle East, and south-east Asia.

Action taken by Victorian company 'uncommon'

Ian Feldtmann, from the Victorian Farmers Federation, said he respected the stance taken by the company but said it was uncommon.

"I was surprised. I personally would like to leave sanctions to the Federal Government in how they wish to go about it," Mr Feldtmann told 107.9 ABC Ballarat.

He said if the Government imposed sanctions on Russia, he hoped it would not only affect the farming and agriculture industry.

"Producers are very disappointed, very sad about the plane that was shot down, but if we're going to make sanctions all of Australia needs to bear that brunt, and not just the livestock industry.

"It's something that needs to be thought through carefully about how it would affect people her in Australia, but that doesn't undermine the fact that this aeroplane is shocking."

Mr Verall said he hoped measures such as this would encourage Mr Putin "to do the right and decent thing".

"Sometimes it is easier for businesses to do nothing and to go about their normal operations independent of external world and political events, but I feel strongly that business can lend support and weight to the work of our government in a very effective and practical manner."
