Expert: Situation with Roshen a sign of Russia's unpredictability


Russia's image will be damaged due to its claims regarding the quality of Roshen confectionery products.

Deputy Director of the Razumkov Center Valeriy Chaly said this live on Radio Era-FM, Ukrinform reported.

"The countries of the Customs Union - Kazakhstan and Belarus - found no problems [in Roshen products]. Moldova and Tajikistan also found no violations. Attempts of pressure will turn into image losses. In cooperation with its partners, Russia demonstrates itself as an unpredictable partner, or, I would say, a too predictable partner," Chaly said.

As reported, unscheduled checks on Roshen products were carried out by the competent authorities of Belarus, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Moldova, which confirmed the compliance of Ukrainian confectionery with all regulations.

The Russian Federal Consumer Rights Service (Rospotrebnadzor) banned imports of Roshen confectionery products to Russia due to their non-compliance with quality and safety requirements.
