Brussels extends softened restrictions on imports from Ukraine

Jun 5, 2023

The European Union has decided to extend the ban on imports of certain agricultural products from Ukraine for five EU members until September 15 but promised to gradually lift it.

This is stated in the message of the European Commission.

"By September 15, 2023, the EU will gradually lift the exceptional and temporary safeguard measures adopted on May 2, 2023, on imports of wheat, corn, rapeseed, and sunflower seeds from Ukraine," the European Commission said.


It also added that the scope of restrictive measures for these products will be reduced from 17 to six tariff lines. According to a source of EuroPravda, durum wheat, corn hybrids, as well as seed and spelled will be excluded from the ban.

"The gradual lifting of the ban will significantly improve the work of the "solidarity routes" and solve the problems associated with the export of Ukrainian grain from the country during this year's harvest," the EU believes.
