KIEV, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine is still ready to receive representatives of the Russian Federal Consumer Rights and Healthcare Service for a joint inspection of quality of dairy products made in Ukraine and exported to Russia, the Ukrainian State Veterinarian and Phytosanitary Service told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The service said an inspection was planned for next week, after March 20.
Service head Ivan Bisyuk said on Tuesday that Ukraine had received a letter from the Russian Federal Consumer Rights and Healthcare Service, which said that an inspection at Gadyachsyr was planned for March 19-21, while an inspection at the Piryatinsky Dairy Plant was scheduled for March 26-30. Both plants are located in the Poltava region.
The Russian service suspended dairy product imports from seven Ukrainian plants, including one in the Chernigov region, two in the Poltava region, one in the Nikolayev region, one in the Kharkov region, one in the Khmelnitsky region, and one in the Sumy region. It said the products failed to meet Russian regulations by the content of vegetable oils. Ukrainian producers discharged the accusations as unfounded. The sides agreed that the service would inspect Ukrainian suppliers of cheese to Russia.
In all, Ukraine exports about 60,000 to 65,000 tonnes of cheese to Russia annually.
This February Russia and Ukraine agreed to unify technical regulations by the yearend.
“Different technical regulations result in cheese and similar altercations. So, it was announced after negotiations with Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov that technical regulations important for Russia-Ukraine trade would be unified before the end of 2012. That is a keynote decision,” Chairman of the State Duma Committee for CIS Affairs and Compatriots Leonid Slutsky said.
