Five EU member states called on extend the ban on Ukrainian grain imports


Five central European member states of the European Union will submit a joint request to the bloc on Wednesday to extend a ban on Ukrainian grain imports beyond its expiration on September 15 to avoid any major market turmoil, according to the Hungarian Agriculture Minister Istvan Nagy.

Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia will request continued bans on imports of wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds from Ukraine for the time being, Nagy said at the airport on his way to a meeting in Warsaw.

Nevertheless, he said they had discussed an option in which countries could individually ask the EU to add products to the ban list.
