Protests over imports of cheap Ukrainian grain begin in Romania

In Romania, international roads may be blocked due to protests, so the passage of citizens and vehicles at the border may decrease.

Source. This was reported by the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine on April 7.

It is noted that at the Porubne-Siret checkpoint, the registration of trucks leaving Ukraine has been temporarily suspended.

Border guards ask to take this information into account when planning a trip or choose other checkpoints on the border with Romania.

According to Digi24, Romanian farmers protested against duty-free imports of Ukrainian grain, which led to lower prices for their products.

Despite the fact that the European Commission is preparing a new compensation package for European farmers who suffered from grain imports from Ukraine, the protesters believe that these compensations will not help cover the losses.

As part of the protests on April 7, Romanian residents took tractors and other equipment to the streets. In one of the counties, a battle broke out between farmers and law enforcement officers.

At the same time, not only Romanian farmers complain about cheap Ukrainian grain. In particular, protests have been going on in Poland for several months. And on the eve of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's visit to Poland, the Polish Minister of Agriculture defiantly resigned.

Background. As reported, the EU will allocate 30 million euros to Polish farmers to compensate for grain exports from Ukraine.
