KIEV, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine’s ministry of economic development and trade has formed a working group to begin talks with Russia over confectionery exports of the Ukrainian company Roshen to Russia. The talks are to begin on August 5, Ukrainian Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Nikolai Prisyazhnyuk said on Friday.
“Ukraine has no doubts that the quality of Roshen products meets all applicable standards,” he said. “But is Russia has any claims to the quality, it should be handed over to us.”
