MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's consumer protection watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, said on Thursday it had stopped imports of Ukrainian juice, Moscow's latest trade ban following new Western sanctions against Russia over Ukraine.

Rospotrebnadzor said in a statement that imports were suspended on July 29 because the products had not undergone proper state registration.
