EU not to ban Russian agricultural goods deliveries to Global South

Brussels, Mar 22 (Prensa Latina) The European Union (EU) refuses to hinder the deliveries of Russian agricultural products to the Global South countries, European Commission (EC) President Ursula von der Leyen stated.

After reiterating they do not want any grain from Russia and Belarus on the EU markets, Von der Leyen mentioned the possibility of transit and the guarantee of supplying these inputs to the so-called Global South and other regions around the globe.

At a press briefing, Von der Leven also announced the EU’s proposal to raise customs duties (by 50%) on grain, oilseeds and by-products imported from Russia and Belarus.

According to Financial Times, the EU bought a record four million tons of supplies from Moscow in 2023, a figure described as a record. It is equivalent to 1% of the EU’s consumption.
