The Cabinet of Ministers approved the licensing scheme for the export of grain to the European Union
The government has approved a new procedure for the export of agricultural products to supply crops to five EU countries.
The new scheme concerns the export of corn, rapeseed, sunflower and wheat to five states — members of the European Union, which border Ukraine, said the Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Mykola Solskyi .
“We believe that this scheme of work will satisfy all parties. And even those three countries that are currently opposing Ukrainian agricultural exports will also join this plan. Because we all have one goal – victory in this terrible war. And for this there must be mutual understanding and mutual support between us,” said Solskyi.
Solsky called the long-awaited decision of the European Commission to lift restrictions on the export of Ukrainian agricultural products with the introduction of additional control measures constructive, and Ukraine is grateful for such a position.
The head of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy added that within 72 hours, Ukraine worked and presented to the European Commission an action plan for export control. According to Solskyi, the Ukrainian side’s proposal should defuse the situation.
“According to our action plan, Ukraine will monitor and regulate exports as follows. We agree with the European Commission and the importing countries on the necessary list and volume of agricultural products from four crops, they, in turn, determine whether they are ready to accept these crops, when and in what quantities. Only after that we issue permits to our enterprises to export one or another product. That is, Ukraine controls its exports and coordinates them with the receiving countries,” the minister emphasized.
