KIEV, July 29 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights ban to import Ukrainian candies does not mean any trade warfare, Ukrainian first vice-premier Sergei Arbuzov told journalists.
“There is no trade warfare. Now we’re dealing with this process. A group will be formed and it will study this issue. I believe that we’ll be able to make a statement within two or three days,” Arbuzov said.
The Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights imposed a ban on the import of Ukrainian Confectionary Corporation Roshen to Russia.
Earlier, chief sanitary inspector Gennady Onishchenko said the Russian service had pretensions to Ukrainian confectionary.
“Of late the quality of confectionary products imported from Ukraine raised our great concern. First of all, this concerns Roshen’s candies,” Onishchenko said.
The inspection proved that Ukrainian products “do not correspond to the earlier mentioned parameters. Particularly, benzopyrene has been found in Roshen milk chocolate”, the chief sanitary inspector said.
