Ukrainian Chocolate Maker Permitted to Resume Exports to Russia

Ukraine's biggest candymaker, Roshen, will be re-permitted to send its products to Russia as long as Ukrainian sanitary authorities check every single batch for delivery, Russia's consumer protection service said Tuesday.

"This would enable us to start the procedure of gradually resuming Roshen sales on the Russian market," the consumer watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, said in a statement.

Russian and Ukrainian sanitary authorities have also agreed to further discuss "ensuring due quality and consumer safety regarding Ukrainian goods," the statement said.

Russia banned imports from Roshen in late July, saying analyzed product samples failed to comply with sanitary regulations.

The move coincided with other economic measures imposed by Russia, such as the temporary introduction of thorough customs checks for Ukrainian goods on the Russian border and wrangling over gas pricing.
