Russian consumers' right and health protection agency Rospotrebnadzon has added four more Ukrainian cheese plants to the list of Ukrainian cheese enterprises banned from import to the Russian market, the agency's head and chief state health officer of Russia Gennady Onishchenko said Monday.

"From Monday we additionally 'close' other four plants," Onishchenko said, according to Interfax-Ukraine.

Earlier the watchdog imposed the ban on products of Prometei (Chernihiv region), the Peryatinsky cheese-making plant (Poltava region) and Gadyachsyr (Poltava region). Now the list also includes Bashtanski and Lozvski cheese-making plant, "Bel Shostka of Ukraine" and Khmelnitsk butter and cheese production base.

"Samples, gathered in Moscow, Krasnodar, Kaliningrad and Ryazan regions, do not meet the requirements of the current legislation of the Russian Federation. 30.6 tons of Ukrainian cheese have already been withdrawn from the market," Onishchenko declared.
