MOSCOW, March 23 (Reuters) - Russia's food safety watchdog said on Monday it suspected Serbia of re-exporting Polish apples and was considering banning all fruit imports from the non-EU country, Russian news agency RIA reported.

Russia banned all fruit imports from the European Union as part of a wider embargo imposed in August in retaliation to Western sanctions over Moscow's role in the Ukraine conflict. (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova; Editing by Lidia Kelly)
