KIEV, April 11 (Itar-Tass) — Ukrainian Economic Development and Trade Minister Pyotr Poroshenko will visit Russia in April to discuss the resumption of Ukrainian cheese supplies to the country’s market, the ministry’s press service reported on Wednesday.

Poroshenko said the schedule for checking Ukrainian cheese was being maintained. Ukrainian enterprises submit all necessary documentation. Progress has been achieved in setting up laboratories for controlling Ukrainian products in its export to Russia. “Ukrainian products should comply with Russian standards and regulations,” Ukrainian minister said.
