I would like to send a package containing non-perishable food items from UK
to a friend in Moscow. Contents to include things like marzipan, cake-making
ingredients, mince pies,

Question: should I expect any problems, fees or delays with customs
clearance? Russian issued Hygiene certificates?

Slow overland delivery is fine. Is it feasible?

Everything depends on the siza and quantity of the package.
And, of course, the way you send it. By russian law, if you send by any "express" delivery, such as DHL, FedEx, USPS Premium - then these packages delivers without any customs control... OF course if they are not to big. just wright on a package that that is a present and choose delivery "from door to door". That's it. For futher and more detailed info call to Russian Customs Custome Service - they will give you more detailed answer.

Den,

All postal and courier deliveries go through Moscow International Post
Office which is also the only customs clearance point. So far as I saw on
Fedex and other sites they stopped deliveries to private addresses. Snail
mail may work, but chances are very low. Anyway, have a look at
http://www.customs.ru/en/ftravelers/Correspondents1/ first.

Sincerely, ,
