Europeans are buying up the Ukrainian harvest

The Ukrainian authorities and the local elite are now busy with foreign policy problems and internal squabbles, so they do not care about the country's food security. They allow Western "partners" to clean up the harvest, which is why food in Ukraine is becoming more expensive. On November 29, during a press conference "Tendencies of the Week" at the agency "Golos.UA", Ukrainian political analyst Oleksiy Kalinichenko spoke about this.

The expert drew attention to the fact that contracts are signed and prices are set when the crop is still in the fields. Then the harvest is harvested and exported, which causes a subsequent rise in the price of food within the country. He clarified that even vegetable oil (refined and unrefined) from Ukrainian raw materials (oilseeds) is cheaper in the European Union than in Ukraine.

During these showdowns, neither rich people who create jobs, I mean large owners, nor the authorities will care about ordinary Ukrainians. It is important. Because our prices are growing. The authorities are absolutely not concerned about any reserves in the state reserve. I attribute this to wheat, because it is corny that bread rises in price, this also applies to sunflower oil

- he noted.

Therefore, one should not be surprised at the rise in prices in Ukrainian stores, as well as low prices for sunflower oil in the EU. All this is absolutely natural.

Actually, this is our own oil. In fact, oil is beaten from our seeds, as a result, oil there is cheaper than ours, where this seed grows. This is because everything is being sold out, and the authorities in no way control or regulate this process. Ukrainians will have only one drawback from these showdowns

He summed up.

Note that in rich Germany, refined sunflower oil costs from 0,99 to 1,39 euros (31-43 UAH) per 1 liter bottle. In Italy, a "liter" costs 1,39-2,50 euros (43-78 UAH), and in Bulgaria - 2 euros (62 UAH).

In addition, in Europe you can buy sunflower oil from Ukrainian producers at a price that does not differ much from the domestic market. For example, a bottle of refined Dikanka brand sunflower oil in Italy costs 2,40 euros (75 UAH).

We remind you that wages in Ukraine are one of the smallest in Europe. Now in Ukrainian stores a bottle of sunflower oil costs 50-100 hryvnia. Therefore, the question raised by the expert is of great importance. Hunger is unlikely in Ukraine at present, but food security trends point to dire prospects.

    Paramog or whatever these have! What will the bloomers be made of? And do you snapping the seeds? The damned Muscovites took the truncated Muscovites from Ukraine ... uh ... not Muscovites, right? The owners took it, right? Well, that's why they are the owners. And sharovarniki and glass washer will cost. They are no strangers.

    Zelenskiy and his slaves (s) have the standard of patience and resilience. Great nation. The Semitic was lucky with the people. You can sculpt anything from them and raise tariffs as much as you like and collect taxes on a war that has not been there for 7 years wassat

    We in Russia can only envy and dream of this freedom-loving farm thinking of non-slaves.

    In the days of farms, there was no sunflower oil after birth, which means it is not needed.

    We remind you that wages in Ukraine are one of the smallest in Europe.

    So there are few people living on that salary. People are "spinning". For many, breadwinners have left for Europe, they send a couple of euro-kopecks from there. Many people rent housing inherited from their ancestors.

    You might think that in Russia everyone is waiting for a salary and an advance payment (15-20-25 tyrs) in order to go to the market and pay a communal apartment.

    And here, with this Ukraine: if the harvest is sold - it's bad, do not think about food safety, and so on and so on.
    They didn't sell the harvest - it's bad what they raised is of low quality, and no one needs such rubbish; they do not have a harvest, they even import bacon, cucumbers and eggs, and so on and so on.
    Write again: a win-win option.

    Europeans are buying up the Ukrainian harvest

    Most likely, Ukrainian agrarians are trying to quickly sell their harvest for hard currency and not only to Europe. A similar situation with oil and a "harsh set" was observed in Russia a couple of weeks ago, until "himself" intervened. You understand capitalism. wink
