UKRAINIAN PROHIBITIONS ON THE IMPORT OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS
The EU Commission had announced that the restrictive measures applied to Ukraine’s exports of grain and other food products to the EU would expire on September 15. Thus, the EU’s decision not to import grain from Ukraine to Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Bulgaria ended.
Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania, which wanted the restriction on Ukrainian grain to be extended to protect their farmers, also announced that they could extend the restrictions unilaterally if the EU does not decide.
Polish Minister of Agriculture Robert Telus said after the EU Commission decision was announced on September 15, “The Commission does not extend the ban on Ukrainian grain, we will extend it ourselves.” He used the expression. (AA)
