Ukraine will file a lawsuit in the World Trade Organization (WTO) against Poland, Hungary and Slovakia in connection with the refusal of these countries to cancel the ban on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products.
This was stated by the trade representative of Ukraine Taras Kachka, the Ukrainian media reported.
“It is important to prove that these actions are legally incorrect. And therefore, tomorrow we will begin the trial,” the words of the trade representative are given.
According to him, Kyiv is ready to take response to Polish exports of fruits and vegetables.
“I think that the whole world should see how EU member states behave in relation to trading partners and their Union, because it can affect other states,” Kachka emphasized.
On September 15, the EU allowed the ban on the export of wheat, barley, raps and sunflower seeds from Ukraine to Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria, introduced on May 2 for the period of September 15.
Following this, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia introduced unilateral prohibitions on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products.
The governments of these countries said they act to protect the interests of their farmers.
