Ukraine exported over 32 mln tonnes of grain and oilseeds via Solidarity Lanes from April 2022
According to the Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Markiian Dmytrasevych, from April 2022 to March 2023, Ukraine exported more than 32 million tonnes of grain and oilseeds via the Solidarity Lanes, land routes going through the territory of European Union member states.
“We understand that over the past year, the heavy load from the export of Ukrainian agricultural products has also affected our Western neighbors. It is critical for us that the farmers of neighboring countries continue to operate in comfortable conditions as much as possible, but it should be understood that such a situation also has a positive effect on their markets,” he said. Dmytrasevych added that, as a result of the increasing exports of Ukrainian grain, the price of grain on the markets of other countries has become more competitive, more jobs have been created there, while the amount of taxes paid has also gone up.
