Slovakia extends ban on Ukrainian grain imports

Slovakia's Agriculture Minister Jozef Bires (pictured) said, as cited by Markiza TV on Friday, that the country will extend its ban on imports of grain from Ukraine.

Bires stated the new ban will be introduced on midnight after the European Union decided to let its measures on the restrictions on exports of four types of agricultural products from Ukraine expire earlier in the day, claiming the "market distortions" in Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia, the EU member states bordering Ukraine, "have disappeared."

Following the EU's announcement, Hungary and Poland have already announced that they will impose respective unilateral bans on Ukrainian grain imports.
