“The agreed measures demonstrate that Romania’s approach of having a strictly European position, avoiding any unilateral excesses, was a fair and balanced one and that, thus, we will be able to guarantee Romanian farmers more support than if we had proceeded individually. Concretely, this agreement provides for a new support package worth 100 million euros for the affected farmers from the neighboring states of Ukraine. The amount that will go to Romania will be added to the 20 million euros, half European money and half from the state budget, which we already approved in the government meeting”, the Romanian Prime Minister said.
The measure could be extended to other agricultural products.
“The agreement concluded yesterday evening establishes the withdrawal of unilateral measures taken by some European states and allows the ban on the import of four Ukrainian agricultural products: wheat, corn, rape and sunflower seeds. At the same time, the Commission also provided for an accelerated procedure to investigate the impact on the market, which will allow restrictive measures to be taken for other products as of June 5”, stated Nicolae Ciucă.
The exceptional measures agreed by the European Commission with Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia will allow the transit of Ukrainian grains to other countries.
