Russian police say they have broken up a gang producing millions of dollars worth of contraband cheese using banned Western ingredients.
Six people have been arrested; officers accuse them of making cheese with a banned curdling agent.
The amount of cheese seized is 30 million dollars, or 27 million euros.
Russia banned the import of some Western foods and ingredients in retaliation to sanctions over the annexation of Crimea.
President Vladimir Putin recently signed a decree that food breaching Moscow’s own sanctions must be destroyed.
But the move has angered anti-poverty campaigners.
