Cereais ucranbianos baratos irritam agricultores europeus
April 25, 2023 - Vários países da Europa de Leste proibiram as importações da Ucrânia depois do afluxo de cereais baratos ter deixado os agricultores incapazes de venderem os seus produtos.
Europe has been steadfastly solid in its support for Ukraine over the past year, but signs of friction are starting to show from an unexpected source.
An influx of cut-price cereals from Ukraine into Europe has upset the status quo, with farmers there unable to compete as the market becomes saturated and prices tumble.
In a bid to help their own farmers, countries bordering or close to Ukraine are banning grain imports from Ukraine for several months.
Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and Bulgaria have all banned imports, with Romania mulling over the idea.
The situation came to rise after Russia blockaded Black Sea exports of Ukrainian agricultural goods, and the European Union stepped in to facilitate the export of goods to the EU and beyond via its roads, railways, and waterways.
