Zelensky: any extension of EU ban on Ukraine grain imports 'unacceptable'

  • 10 months ago
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky brands as "absolutely unacceptable and frankly anti-European" any move by the European Union to extend curbs on Ukrainian grain imports to protect local farmers who fear being undercut. Last week, Ukraine's European neighbours urged the EU to extend a grain import ban until the end of the year, amid fears local farmers would suffer due to diverted Ukrainian supplies.
