Slovakia extends embargo against Ukrainian agricultural products

Bratislava, Nov 29 (Prensa Latina) The Government of Slovakia expanded the list of Ukrainian products whose import is banned, according to a document approved today by the Cabinet.

Previously, the ban extended only to imports of wheat, corn, rapeseed and sunflower seeds, but now includes 14 foodstuffs.

Considering the interests of Slovakia and the need to prevent serious failures in the functioning of the republic’s economy (…), it is proposed to extend the ban on imports of agricultural products and goods from Ukraine, the note attached to the document states.

Last September 15, the European Commission decided not to prolong the restrictions on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products in several neighboring European countries.

However, on the same day Slovakia, Hungary and Poland announced their decision to unilaterally extend the embargo.

After his recent inauguration, the country’s Prime Minister, Robert Fico, announced that among his priorities is to cease military support to Ukraine and to fight illegal migration, which is a radical change in the nation’s stance.
