euractiv | Ukraine warns grain import bans play into Russia's war propaganda, 28 Apr
Fuck the EU. Fuck starving Africans.
"The breaking of the basic EU PRINCIPLES by individual member states should be tackled by the European Commission without damage to Ukraine and the countries-recipients of Ukrainian agro-products," [Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister Olha] Stefanishyna said.

"The flow of Ukrainian agro-export is a matter of SURVIVAL for the Ukrainian economy, heavily impacted by the full-scale Russian war of aggression—so, OUR COMMON PRIORITY should be an extension of the suspension of import duties, quotas, and trade defence measures on Ukrainian exports to the EU," she added.[...]
Before Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Kyiv was already benefiting from the elimination of the vast majority of EU tariffs, in some cases with transition periods, under the EU-Ukraine free trade agreement applied since 2016.

"The Ukraine-EU Association Agreement has to be THE ONLY LEGAL BASIS for finding sustainable solutions in that regard and relevant consultations will be urgently requested by the Ukrainian side," Stefanishyna said.
