MINSK, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Belarus will not allow confectionery manufactured by the Ukrainian company Roschen cross its territory, the Belarusian ministry of health said in a statement on Friday.
“In line with the Customs Union agreement on sanitary measures dated December 11, 2009, the Belarusian ministry of health has taken measures to prevent import of Roshen confectionery to Russia via border checkpoints at the Belarusian section of the Customs Union customs border,” the document says.
The ministry also said that specialists from the Belarusian sanitary control authorities had begun to take samples of Roshen products to carry out laboratory tests to establish the conformity of these products to the Customs Union requirements. “In case the Ukrainian-made confectionery is found to violate safety requirements, exhaustive measures will be taken in line with the current laws of Belarus and the Customs Union,” the ministry stressed.
