The regulation prepared by the European Commission, which extends the ban on the import of Ukrainian agricultural exports, will apply to a smaller number of goods.
This was reported by a source in the Ukrainian government.
According to the interlocutor of "EvroPravda", hard varieties of wheat, hybrids of corn, as well as material for sowing and spelled will be excluded from the ban.
According to him, the corresponding regulation of the European Commission can be officially published by the end of June 5.
It will be recalled that on May 2, the EU imposed restrictions on the import of Ukrainian wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower until June 5 in order to reduce the surplus supply of cereals in Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. It was these countries that complained that cheaper Ukrainian grain made domestic production unprofitable.
At the same time, during this period, Ukrainian wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower can be sold to any other EU country.
These countries demanded that the ban be extended at least until the end of the year. And the European Commission assumed the possibility of extending restrictions on the import of grain.
On June 5, the Minister of Agriculture of Poland, Robert Telus, said that he had already received a draft resolution from the European Commission on the extension of the ban on the import of Ukrainian grain until September 15. Sources in the government of Ukraine confirm the continuation of the European ban until this date.
This restriction has already affected Ukrainian exports. In particular, in April, Ukraine received $0.7 billion less in food exports compared to the previous month.
