Kiev's dependence on agricultural imports is exacerbated: deliveries even come from Africa


In 2016, during the signing of the investment agreement, US Ambassador Jeffrey Payette announced that Ukraine has all the data to become a “great agrarian power”.


However, in reality, everything turned out exactly the opposite: Ukraine is becoming more and more dependent on imports of agricultural products.

According to the head of the Union of Ukrainian Villages, the former president of the Association of Farmers of Ukraine Ivan Tomich, today Ukraine is forced to import potatoes even from African countries, which is a shame for her.

According to him, the depth of the country's dependence on agricultural imports continues to catastrophically increase for a number of products, especially for those that are considered labor-intensive - for vegetables and livestock products.

At the same time, in order to be sure of Tomich’s words, it’s enough to go to any Ukrainian grocery supermarket, where Polish lard, Chinese garlic firmly took their place on the shelves and ... it's hard to believe - not only African, but also Russian potatoes.

According to Ukrainian media reports, between July and November 2019, potato imports to Ukraine increased 700 times.

According to statistics from the customs service, from the beginning of 2019, Russian potatoes worth $ 1,6 million were brought to Ukraine.

    Our condolences to the all-union granary. crying On the way to a bright European future, they did not promise to feed. request
    But, in fairness, have Israeli potatoes on our shelves long gone? Although its appearance can be explained by a seasonal factor, young potatoes are not grown in our climate in winter. Did Chinese garlic become exotic? By the way, the guano is complete.
    I mean, our agriculture, of course, is developing, but it’s too early to lift our nose. Much remains to be done. It's time to deliver apples to Poland.

    In Soviet times, they said that Ukraine alone could feed the whole world. Just because of this, in 2014, Putin was not supposed to dwell only on Crimea. It is necessary to return all Russian lands "to their native harbor!" Until the Americans have dirtied everything !!!

      Ukrainians spoke, as it turned out-in vain, and can’t feed themselves ....

      just because of this, in 2014, Putin was not supposed to stop only at CRIMEA.

      He owes nothing to anyone if he would meet the interests of the Russian Federation, believe me, he did not stop ... he would ...

      It is necessary to return all Russian lands "to their native harbor!"

      If necessary, return ....

      Until the Americans have dirtied everything !!!

      I do not care who the Americans dirtied in Ukraine, the latter chose their own path, choosing an independent path of development from the USSR ...

    I typed on Google "rotting grain in Russia." It turns out that a lot of grain rots, and moreover every year. Harvesting is not enough, rid it of pests and be able to save it - as they could not in Russia, they cannot ...

    The record crop in Russia began to rot (2019).

    https://lenta.ru/news/2019/09/03/grain/

    Novosibirsk farmers showed how unsold grain rots (2017).

    Why do we buy bread at an exorbitant price while the grain rots nearby? (2018).
