Five tons of Ukrainian cheese have been withdrawn from circulation and more than 120 tons have been banned from import over the failure of Ukrainian producers to meet Russian food standards, head of Russian consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor Gennady Onishchenko informed.

"(The service) has suspended sale of nearly five tons of Ukrainian cheese and banned import of 128,500 tons of cheese to the Russian Federation following the results of checks," the service said in a statement.

The watchdog has imposed the ban on products of Prometei, the Peryatinsky cheese-making plant and Gadyachsyr for violations of Russian milk and milk product standards, but the list of Ukrainian producers whose production is doubted has been enlarged, the service says.

According to Onishchenko, Rospotrebnadzor is preparing the list of documents the Ukrainian side will have to submit for examination, including the regulations and production performance.
