Not So Fast: EU denies Poland and Hungary’s ban on Ukraine grain

Poland and Hungary announced they would ban Ukraine grain imports over the weekend, and the European Union quickly rejected their efforts, according to BBC News.

It came after local farmers complained saying they were being undercut by cheaper Ukrainian grain flooding their markets. It would have been applied to grains, dairy products, sugar, fruit, vegetables, and meats.

Most grain out of Ukraine is exported by the Black Sea, but the invasion has disrupted routes.

The United Nations is expressing concern over the fragile Black Sea Grain Deal by sending letters to Russia, Ukraine, and Turkey. Right now, dozens of ships are still waiting for inspection. Russia has reportedly starting to insist on a random list for inspection each day, which causes inspections to become inefficient.
