EU proposes curbs on Ukraine farm imports to calm angry farmers – Times of India

Published on


BRUSSELS: The European Commission proposed on Wednesday measures to limit agricultural imports from Ukraine and greater flexibility towards rules on fallow land in a bid to quell protests by angry farmers in France and other EU members.
The Commission said it would extend the suspension of import duties on Ukrainian exports for another year to June 2025. They were originally suspended in 2022 to help support Ukraine’s economy following Russia’s invasion.
French and Belgian farmers have set up dozens of blockades on highways and on access roads to a major container port on Wednesday to press governments to ease environmental rules and help protect them from rising costs and cheap imports.
