Zelensky on the ban on Ukrainian grain imports: it violates EU treaties

Volodymyr Zelensky announced the details of the talks with the President of the European Council on Twitter.

“We discussed banning the import of Ukrainian agricultural products by several neighboring countries. I expressed deep concern about such decisions and stressed that these measures are a flagrant violation of the Association Agreement and the founding treaties of the European Union,” he wrote on Friday.

“I called for a solution to this situation, taking into account EU law, the Association Agreement and the interests of all parties,” he added.

Grain Crisis Agreement

Later on Friday, the European Commission said it had reached an agreement with Poland and four other countries that raised the Ukrainian grain issue. The agreement provides for an obligation to withdraw from unilateral trade-restrictive measures imposed by Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Hungary.
