Volodymyr Lapa, Head of the State Food Safety and Consumer Protection Service of Ukraine, commented on the recent publications sourced from Alexei Doroshenko’s claims on the “EU refusal to buy Ukrainian dairy products” on Facebook.
“Why do we need enemies, if we have such friends? I am referring to the founder of the Ukrainian Association of Suppliers to Retail Chains Alexei Doroshenko, who declared that the European Union had refused to buy Ukrainian dairy products because of antibiotics contamination.
In order to eliminate illiteracy and to clarify the situation: there have not been any notifications or returns of Ukrainian dairy products from the European Union. Exports operations are carried out in their normal mode. It is not so easy for Ukrainian dairy producers to compete in this market because of the low price of raw milk in Eastern Europe, but this is an absolutely another matter”.
