In Moldova, farmers continue to protest against the "negligent attitude of state structures towards the agro-industrial complex", among the demands is a ban on the import of agricultural products from Ukraine.
This was reported by the Moldovan association "Farmers' Power".
On Thursday, the second day of protests, Moldovan farmers, among other things, blocked the Leushena customs post.
Protests are also taking place in the Telenesht and Rezin districts of Moldova.
On June 7, the "Power of Farmers" association held negotiations with the Prime Minister of Moldova, Dorin Rechan, but remained dissatisfied with the results of the discussion.
During the discussion, the farmers noted that, unfortunately, even some of the most concrete promises made by the authorities since March have still not been fulfilled. The Prime Minister rejected the request of the farmers to sign a memorandum to fulfill the demands of the farmers with specific deadlines for their implementation.
On May 17, the organization appealed to the government to take measures to help agricultural producers by June 3. The farmers demand, among other things, to introduce a ban on the import of agricultural products from Ukraine, to oblige the Giurgiulesti port to export only Moldovan agricultural products.
The association said that at the meeting with the head of government on June 7, they heard only joint promises for an indefinite period, while most farmers are allegedly threatened with bankruptcy in the next two to three months.
For this reason, after the negotiations, the farmers announced the holding of rallies in 20 settlements, and if the authorities do not listen to their demands, the farmers promise to hold a mass protest in Chisinau as well.
"More than 550 units of agricultural machinery and more than a thousand farmers and agricultural workers from almost all regions of the country took part in the action," the "Power of Farmers" association notes.
It was reported there that on June 7, farmers blocked several national routes, such as Kausany-Stefan Vode, Chisinau-Leusheny, Leova-Kantemir, Yedinci-Bieltsi and Cagul-Kantemir.
