Following the example of Poland and Hungary, Bulgaria considers imposing a ban on the import of Ukrainian-produced grain.
The relevant statement was made by radio bulgaria , referring to Bulgarian Agriculture Minister Yavor Gechev, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Bulgarian interests must be protected. Moreover, now that two countries have already acted in this way, if we do not react, the accumulations [of grain – Ed.] on Bulgarian territory could become even bigger,” Gechev said.
According to Gechev, a few days ago he spoke to counterparts from six countries on the issue. In fact, Sofia asked Brussels to respond to this problem back in September 2022.
Gechev mentioned that, on Tuesday, there will be“communication with the president, who is directly involved in this situation”.
A reminder that the european commission considers the unilateral trade decisions, which were made by poland and hungary to ban the import of ukrainian grain and other agricultural products, unacceptable.
