Any decision regarding the import of grain from Ukraine will be taken with due regard for Moldova’s interests. This was stated by Daniel Voda, an official representative of the executive branch.
“Talks with the Ministry of Agriculture, the government, and the farmers are underway. Solutions will certainly be found. The decisions taken by the executive branch are based on the interests of our country and those of the farmers,” Voda said, rupor.md reports.
According to him, on Wednesday, 10 May, Agriculture Minister Vladimir Bolea will hold meetings with the branch representatives. Earlier they had asked the authorities to block grain imports from Ukraine, following the example of some EU countries. Otherwise, the farmers threaten mass protests.
Ukraine did not like the measures imposed by the EU states. In a meeting with Ursula von der Leyen on Tuesday, 9 May, Zelensky said that “grain export bans make the aggressor stronger”.
