EU complains about cheap grain from Ukraine

Part of Ukrainian food goes to Eastern European countries during transportation, which creates problems for local farmers.

Cheap grain from Ukraine is causing more and more problems for farmers from Eastern European countries of the European Union. This is due to the fact that due to the facilitation of trade in Ukraine against the backdrop of Russia’s war against this country, a significant part of the feed and food exported from Ukraine began to settle in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary , Poland, Romania and Slovakia, which creates problems for local farmers, should from the joint report of these six EU countries published on Monday, January 30.

“There are now growing indications that this increase, if unchecked, could create serious difficulties for EU producers in the agricultural sector,” the document said.

On January 30, EU agriculture ministers in Brussels will discuss the current situation in the agricultural sector and possible solutions to the problem.

A particularly problematic situation has arisen in the grain sector of the six Eastern European EU countries. For example, only the import of corn from Ukraine to these countries increased from January to November last year from several thousand to several million tons.

Corridor of unity

The European Union, in order to avoid a shortage of grain on the world market due to the cessation of exports from Ukraine against the backdrop of the Russian aggression, has created the so-called corridors of unity, thus facilitating transportation and control over frontier for Ukrainian agriculture. products.

However, it turned out that a significant part of Ukrainian grain does not go to the world market, but resides in the Eastern European countries of the EU as animal feed, where, due to its cheapness, it forces the products of local farmers. from markets.

In an interview with dpa, a representative of the German Ministry of Food and Agriculture emphasized the importance of monitoring the EU solidarity corridors “so that the Ukrainian grain goes where these corridors end – to EU ports for additional transportation to destination countries.”

Compensation for farmers in Eastern Europe

In their joint report, the six Eastern European countries of the EU express their readiness to continue supporting the agricultural sector in Ukraine, as long as it does not have negative consequences for their own markets. They also believe that the affected local farmers should be compensated.

Before the Russian invasion, the share of grain exported to world markets by Russia and Ukraine was, according to the European Commission, about 34%.
