Budapest abandoned individual measures against Ukrainian agricultural products, despite agreements with the EU.

Hungary is the only neighboring country of Ukraine that has not lifted unilateral restrictions against agricultural imports to Ukraine. This is what the representative of the European Commission for trade and agriculture Miriam Garcia Ferrer said in a briefing in Brussels on May 23, reports Ukrinform.

“There is a country that has not canceled individual measures against agricultural exports from Ukraine. This should not affect Ukrainian transit (grain, – ed.), and does not apply across the EU. But we offered an aid package on the condition that the unilateral measures should be withdrawn. The country that did not do this was Hungary,” said the EC representative.

He recalled that on April 28, the European Commission agreed with Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia a package of measures to be implemented after these countries canceled their exclusive actions against agricultural imports from Ukraine.

This package also includes direct aid to affected farmers in five countries, including Romania.

“We had a presentation of these measures with the participation of different countries on May 3. Then we discussed the aid package for 100 million euros and the conditions for its placement. For now we are still waiting We are also for the elimination of some unilateral measures that have been introduced before we can take the next step,” added Ferrer.

He also confirmed to reporters that the European Commission received a letter in May from EU members protesting against the allocation of aid to the five countries.

“We will respond shortly. But I cannot predict in advance what will happen,” summed up the press secretary of the EC.

It will be recalled that the European Commission has banned the import of wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds of Ukrainian origin to Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia for the period from May 2 to June 5, 2023.
