KIEV, September 26 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow and Kiev have reached an agreement about ways to settle the situation over imports of Ukraine’s Roshen confectionery to Russia, Ukrainian Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Ivan Bisyuk said on Thursday.
“We have received an official letter of Rospotrebnadzor [Russia’s federal consumer rights protection authority] outlining ways to settle this situation,” he told journalists.
In his words, there are three ways to solve this problem. “We have presented information about each confectionery company and the entire legal base regulating this area,” he said. “Now we are waiting for Rospoterbnadzor specialists to inspect these companies.”
When asked when Russia would lift its ban on Roshen product imports, Bisyuk said, “I hope it will happen very soon.”
On July 29, Rospotrebnadzor imposed a ban on imports of confectionery manufactured by Ukraine’s concern Roshen over claims to the quality.
