Agricultural machinery stretches hundreds of meters near the Hungarian-Ukrainian border.

On February 9, Hungarian farmers staged a protest near the Zahony checkpoint on the Ukrainian border, opposing the European Commission’s decision to extend duty-free imports of Ukrainian products for another year. This was reported by the Hungarian publication Világgazdaság.

It was noted that the demonstration was organized by the Association of Hungarian Farmers’ Unions and Farmer Cooperatives and the National Chamber of Agriculture.

Hungarian farmers insist that food coming from outside the European Union should be subject to the same rules as EU farmers, and that Brussels should protect the interests of its own farmers “instead of trying to destroy the European countryside in its steps.”

They also say that Ukraine exports GMO products and oppose it. Farmers believe that “Ukraine could destroy European agriculture” and that many EU food producers and processors could go bankrupt due to the arrival of Ukrainian goods.
