"I hope that the fulfillment of all demands and the correction of all mistakes will help to resume exports of Ukrainian cheese to the Russian market soon," the minister told reporters in Kyiv on April 18.
He praised the fact that Russia had permitted imports of cheese produced by three Ukrainian cheese-makers after checks.
"Thee plants have been checked. These three plants produce 80% of our exports to Russia. And if Russia opens its market to us, this will be a positive signal. I hope this will happen soon," the minister said.
