The import ban, the five countries reached an agreement

On August 25, local time, Polish Minister of Agriculture Telus announced after a meeting with the ministers of agriculture of Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia that the five countries had reached a unified position on the issue of Ukrainian agricultural products, including three main points: one is to propose to extend the ban on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products until the end of this year, the second is to provide subsidies for grain transit, and the third is to make the list of prohibited products more flexible.

"We have developed a common position that will be presented at the next Council of the European Union," Telus said. If negotiations with the European Commission are unsuccessful, some countries will introduce restrictive measures. Poland will certainly do this, Hungary will certainly do it. However, he stressed that there will be no restrictions on the transit of Ukrainian grain through the territory of Poland.

After the escalation of the Ukrainian crisis, due to logistics and other problems, a large number of Ukrainian agricultural products can only be sold in Eastern European countries, which has had an impact on the prices of local agricultural products. The European Commission announced in May a month-long ban on the free trade of Ukrainian wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds in Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia, before extending the ban until September 15.

In July, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced that Poland would close its borders and ban the entry of Ukrainian agricultural products if the European Commission did not extend the ban on imports of Ukrainian agricultural products after September 15.
