Expansion of Ban on Food Imports from Ukraine by the European Union is Imminent
Polish radio RMF FM, citing sources in Brussels, reported that the European Commission “unofficially” expressed its readiness to expand the list of agricultural products prohibited from import from Ukraine.
According to the radio station, negotiations between the Vice-President of the European Commission Valdis Dombrovskis and representatives of Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria on the issue of food imports from Ukraine, which have been ongoing since last Monday, ended in vain.
The station confirms that the European Commission is “ready to make concessions” and expand the list of goods prohibited from import from Ukraine.
So far, the European Commission has officially agreed to ban the import of wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds, and is ready to “unofficially” include other items in the list of five countries, such as eggs and poultry meat.
It is noteworthy that four European countries – Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Bulgaria – from April 22 introduced a temporary ban on the import of Ukrainian grain and other products of plant and animal origin. And we are talking about goods that enter the common market without duties.
