During his visit to Plovdiv, Bulgarian Minister of Agriculture Yavor Gesev, who said, “Our country is considering banning the import of grain from Ukraine, like Poland and Hungary,” said, “Since the two countries act in this way, the amount of grain in Bulgaria may increase even more if we do not respond in the same way. Bulgarian interests must also be guarded with concern.
Noting that he had discussed the issue with colleagues from six countries a few days ago, and that Brussels had asked Bulgaria to announce its position as early as September, Minister Gegev said: “In this case, the president, who has direct obligations, will have contacted” on Tuesday.
The European Commission commented that “unilateral actions of EU member states in the field of trade are unacceptable” due to Poland and Hungary’s decision to stop grain imports from Ukraine.
