Sadovod market closure affects Vietnamese in Russia

(VOV) -A shutdown of the Sadovod market in Moscow by Russian authorities may result in a large number of oversea Vietnamese traders losing their jobs.

Russian authorities said the market has been temporarily shut down pending an investigation into accusations of violations of sanitary and other laws designed to protect consumers.

A record of administrative violations, if any, will be sent to an administrative court to make a final decision on the future operations of the market, a process that could take several months.

Upon hearing the decision, Vietnamese traders went to the market and retrieved their property.
