The Ukrainian government introduced an agricultural export verification mechanism for five neighboring countries




On September 26, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal signed a resolution on the introduction of a mechanism for the verification and approval of four groups of Ukrainian agricultural exports for five neighboring countries. This was announced by the Communications Department of the Secretariat of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

As the Prime Minister noted during the government meeting, Ukraine is preparing relevant documents with Romania and Bulgaria.

“These countries did not violate trade rules of the European Union and the Association Agreement and did not introduce unilateral restrictions. Thank you for this, Ukraine highly values responsible partnership,” said D. Shmyhal.

He also emphasized that in order to solve the grain crisis, Ukraine presented a mechanism for the verification and authorization of four types of agriproducts, which was supported by the European Commission. On September 28, the next meeting of the coordination platform on export and transit issues will be held, at which it is planned to finalize the presented proposals.

“Four countries have worked out the Ukrainian plan, expressed their constructive comments and proposals, and are ready for discussion. And only one country is against it. Unfortunately... We have neither a logical nor an economic explanation for this,” the Prime Minister noted.
