“Ukraine has filed lawsuits against Poland, Hungary and Slovakia at the World Trade Organization over their decision to ban grain imports, in a row that has split the EU and could hurt Kyiv’s prospects of joining the bloc. ‘It is fundamentally important for us to prove that individual member states cannot ban the import of Ukrainian goods. That is why we are filing lawsuits against them in the WTO,’ First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliya Svyridenko said in a statement. … The decision comes after the three countries rebelled against a European Commission decision last Friday to end temporary import restrictions — implemented in the spring in an attempt to mitigate a supply glut — and once again allow Ukrainian grain sales across the EU.” (09/18/23)
