The European Parliament debated on Wednesday the issue of Ukrainian grain dumping in Central Europe.
During the debate, MEPs of Hungary’s governing Fidesz party, Balázs Hidvéghi, and Enikő Győri underlined that they condemn the double standards imposed on Central European member states and we will not allow Hungarian farmers to pay the price of the war and Brussels’ misguided decisions, according to their statement.
Enikő Győri pointed out that
the Commission bears a huge responsibility for the fact that a large part of the grain destined for the hungry in Africa is stuck in countries on the eastern borders of the EU”.
“Following the imposition of unilateral safeguard measures by four member states, Brussels has finally listened to our voice,” she recalled. If the Ukrainian grain dumping had affected the western member states, a solution would have been found immediately. Brussels must finally take note that the problems of our farmers are as important as those of the West and that market disruption in the East and West is a European problem,” Győri pointed out.
“It is absolutely unacceptable that the Commission is imposing ill-prepared and ill-considered measures on member states that are constantly abused by profiteering speculators, causing serious damage to farmers in Central Europe”, said Balázs Hidvéghi.
