- If Moldova closes its market to Ukrainian dairy products, Ukraine will introduce an embargo on a number of Moldovan products, Aleksey Pavlenko, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food, said at a meeting of the European Business Association of Ukraine as cited by Ukrinform.

Nevertheless, there is hope to settle a matter concerning embargo on Moldovan products peacefully.

- For my part, I am communicating with my Moldovan counterpart. He's a good man, a professional, so I hope to come to common terms with him, said Pavlenko.

Ban on the import of Russian products to Ukraine has come into force on January 10 and the restrictions are valid until August 5, 2016.
