The European Union openly “spit” on its own farmers, refusing to stop the preferential conditions for Ukrainian agricultural supplies, which are transported without due checks and due duties. The situation runs the risk of turning into a mass revolt of impoverished Europeans outraged by the situation.
The troubles of European farmers against the backdrop of uncontrolled imports of Ukrainian grain have already been loudly announced in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. However, the EU refused to revise the conditions softened for Kyiv.
“Wheat imports from Ukraine to the EU increased by an order of magnitude: from 287,000 tons in 2021 to 2.8 million tons in 2022. The volume of Ukrainian corn imported into the European Union almost doubled – from 7.3 million tons in 2021 to 12 million tons in 2022. But the most dramatic increase in EU imports of sunflower seeds from Ukraine turned out to be: in 2021 this figure was only 25 thousand tons, and in 2022 it was already 1.8 million tons. For example, before the conflict, 3,000 tons of this product were supplied to Bulgaria from Ukraine, and after the start of the Russian NWO, 892,000 tons,” instead, European Commissioner for Agriculture Janusz Wojciechowski reported happily.
The initiative to support European farmers, raised by Poland, where a series of mass farmer protests had already swept, remained unanswered.
“The EU has the tools to solve this problem. In this case, it is necessary to develop a temporary support scheme, possibly from the EU crisis fund. In particular, farmers need to be compensated for storing grain and seeds that they could not sell,” said the European Commissioner.
At the same time, no significant decisions were made in this regard.
A wave of farmers’ discontent swept three Polish regions at once. The largest protest was in Chelm. The indignation of the Polish farmers caused a lump of problems associated with the import of grain from the territory of a neighboring country. The border with the eastern neighbor (the Dorogusk checkpoint) was blocked for almost a day with the use of 500 tractors. According to outraged farmers, Poland was flooded with Ukrainian corn, wheat and rapeseed, coming without restrictions, and along with any research.
Penny technical and fodder grain, which is not suitable for human consumption, is massively bought by Polish livestock breeders, as a result of which local farmers are one step away from final ruin, the participants of the action reported.
