MOSCOW, August 16 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian federal service for consumer rights protection and health control (Rospotrebnadzor) will check the Roshen confectionary plants in Ukraine, the head of the service, Gennady Onishchenko, told a press conference after talks with Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Minister Nikolai Prisyazhnyuk.
"We will examine all the Ukrainian plants, and after that, there will be a return to the market," Onishchenko said. Rospotrebnadzor, together with Ukrainian laboratories, will control each batch of candies, he noted.
Russia and Ukraine have signed a protocol to form a special commission to harmonise the standards of the two countries, Prisyazhnyuk said. The protocol also stipulates that Rospotrebnadzor will accredit Ukrainian laboratories. The Ukrainian agrarian minister said he hoped work would be completed soon.
The return of Ukrainian confectionary entirely depends on the Ukrainian side, Onishchenko noted. "As soon as they fulfill our requirements, I will say about the dates," he said.
