The ban was imposed because Ukraine’s ABK and Konti confectioneries violated the regulations for product marking, the control service said in a statement.
The Ukrainian ABK, Konti and Roshen companies imported their products mainly to Russia.
The Russian consumer rights watchdog banned Roshen imports in late July 2013, saying the confectionery did not meet quality and safety requirements.
As ITAR-TASS reported earlier, Russia banned all milk and dairy imports from Ukraine on July 28, 2014.
The federal veterinary and phytosanitary control service said Ukrainian dairy imports were barred first of all in connection with supplies of unsafe cheese products. The service repeatedly detected remains of tetracycline antibiotics, heavy metal salts and pathogen microorganisms in milk and dairy products imported from Ukraine.
Earlier, the watchdog banned potato from all Ukrainian farms because of vermin and barred pork supplies because of the African swine fever threat.
Rospotrebnadzor has banned cheeses from 13 Ukrainian firms, juice, including for babies, alcohol products, beer from three Ukrainian firms and canned vegetables, fruit and fish from seven companies.
