State secretary: Ukrainian grain transports being monitored

Grain transports from Ukraine are being checked and sealed at the border, and only those in transit to other countries are allowed to enter Hungary, a state secretary of the agriculture ministry said at the border crossing at Zahony, in northeast Hungary, on Tuesday.

After reviewing the implementation of the ban on Ukrainian grain imports, which the government announced on Saturday, Marton Nobilis said the transports were monitored throughout their journey across Hungary.

“Our aim is to protect Hungarian farmers from Ukrainian grain flooding the country,” he said, adding that the ministry was mulling an extension of the ban to other food products.
