Ukraine sent an official letter to the Russian Federal Service for Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) to address the issue of banning the import of Roshen products to the Russian Federation, economic development and trade minister of Ukraine Ihor Prasolov said in comments to journalists.

"We, as the government which defends the interests of national producers, have taken the first official response - as soon as there had been an official announcement we sent the official letter to the head of Rospotrebnadzor asking for an urgent meeting in order to resolve all the issues," the minister said.

He stressed that the question of ban on import of Ukrainian confectionery entered the official level.
"Earlier, there were informal statements, we worked through the Embassy of Ukraine in the Russian Federation, and now we are acting through the government," Prasolov said.

According to him, today the Ukrainian party is ready for a dialogue with colleagues from Russia, and is interested in actively addressing the abovementioned issue.

"We sent a letter and wait for a response from the Russian party regarding the meeting. Our experts are ready, we have gathered all the required documents, the company Roshen provided us with quality certificates. We want to understand what really happened," the minister noted.

Ihor Prasolov pointed out that the Rospotrebnadzor is unhappy with the quality of the company's products, which are manufactured in the territory of Ukraine, which is rather strange, given the fact that all companies have the same standards of quality.

"As far as I know, and we conducted a preliminary study, one and the same standards of quality are throughout the company, not only in Ukraine but also in Russia and the Baltic States, so the situation is unclear. That's why we want as quickly as possible to sort it out and lift the ban on the supply of our products to Russia," Prasolov said.
