    Russia's Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Monitoring will remove import restrictions on deliveries from six plants operated by Finnish dairy producer Valio from August 6, service spokesman Alexei Alekseyenko said on Friday.

    The service has been actively negotiating with the company in the last two days, he said.

    "We received guarantees regarding six Valio enterprises, deliveries from which were terminated after our inspection," Alekseyenko said.

    The service banned products from 14 Finnish enterprises on July 23 after Russian specialists audited 23 dairy and meat plants.

    Valio delivers 30 percent of its exports to Russia.
