There is still no EU decision on the embargo on Ukrainian grain. Telus: We’re waiting

Robert Telus said that no decision has yet been made on the extension of the EU embargo on Ukrainian grain. – We are waiting, but we are optimistic – he added.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki gave a speech to Poles about the embargo on Ukrainian grain. The head of government has clearly announced that the ban will be extended after September 15, regardless of Brussels’ position. As he said, the government will not allow “Ukrainian grain to destabilize the Polish countryside.”

Robert Telus, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, said on RMF FM that no decision has yet been made to extend the EU embargo on Ukrainian grain. – Of course we are waiting, but we are optimistic that even if the EU does not extend it, we as Poland will extend it – he assured.

The politician pointed out that cooperation between Ukraine and the European Union, including in the field of product supply, should be regulated in the future. – This is not for today, we must build instruments for the future, for the future of Europe – he emphasized.

According to the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Ukrainian products should go to the place where they were transported before the war, namely to African countries. – You can’t keep flooding Europe. If there is a shortage of grain in Africa, it will further destabilize the situation in the world, he said.

Embargo on grain from Ukraine

In May this year, the European Commission took extraordinary measures, which are included in the regulation on autonomous trade measures regarding the import of wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds from Ukraine. These actions were aimed at eliminating disruptions in the supply of these products in Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. These restrictions expire on September 15.

Poland, together with other frontline countries, has appealed to the European Commission to extend the ban. According to media reports, Brussels does not intend to impose any further restrictions on Ukrainian grain.

However, the Polish government has announced that, regardless of the decision of the European Commission, our country will not open its market to products from Ukraine. The statement provoked a sharp reaction from Kiev.
