Rising Russian exports to EU

Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal finds it important to study the question of why the export of Russian goods to the EU has been on the rise after the full-scale invasion.

He touched on the issue during a press conference on the results of the government's four years of work, an Ukrinform correspondent reports."What’s striking me is that the total weight of exports from Russia to EU countries in 2022 stood at 4.9 million tons, of which about 300,000 tons was grain and 200,000 tons was other agricultural products. And in 2023, it was 5.1 million tons in 11 months. That is, despite the war, sanctions, and the blocked border, exports from Russia to Europe are on the rise. And this includes grain, corn, and other agricultural products. And this is also all in millions of tons. And this is, accordingly, funding the Russian budget. And this is the share where Polish and Ukrainian farmers could be on the market. That is the issue," Shmyhal said.
