STAVROPOL, June 18./ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Russia should not stop imports of dairy products from Ukraine for the reason of their poor quality.
His remark followed a proposal made by Andrei Danilenko, chairman of the board of the National Union of Milk Produces, at a conference on development of agriculture in Russia on Wednesday.
Danilenko said that the situation in Ukraine had affected the quality of its dairy products that had deteriorated and dropped below any standards. He suggested suspending all milk imports from that country.
“I can hardly agree that we should ban all milk and dairy imports from Ukraine because of the hard situation in that country. Perhaps, there are problems with concrete suppliers which should be revealed,” Putin said adding it would be wrong to close the market to all Ukrainian producers indiscriminately.
