The State Veterinary and Biosecurity Service of Ukraine has not received from Russia's Consumer Rights Protection Service (Rospotrebnadzor) official confirmation of its intention to send its experts to Ukraine on March 19 to check Ukrainian cheese makers. The Ukrainian side does not know when this visit will take place, the state service told Interfax-Ukraine on March 16.

The state service stressed that Ukraine is ready to host Rospotrebnadzor experts to inspect its cheese makers.

Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor said that it was not ready to start checking Ukrainian cheese makers next week [on March 19-25].

Later, Head of Rospotrebnadzor Gennady Onishchenko criticized Ukraine's decision to hold an independent study of its cheese-making enterprises.

On February 7, Russia banned imports of cheese produced by some of Ukrainian manufacturers.
