MOSCOW, September 18 Kiev may introduce a ban to import cars from Hungary in response to a ban on the import of Ukrainian grain from Budapest, Bloomberg reports, citing Deputy Ukrainian Minister of Economy Taras Kachka.
On September 15, the European Commission decided not to extend restrictions on the import of four types of Ukrainian agricultural products into several EU border countries, but obliged Kyiv to introduce export control measures. After this, the authorities of Slovakia, Hungary and Poland announced that they were extending the ban unilaterally. In particular, Hungary extended the ban on a national basis; 24 products were included in the list of prohibited imports. In addition to grains, the list included various types of meat, poultry, eggs, honey, vegetables and wine.
“Kyiv also plans to take retaliatory measures… (which) may target… cars from Hungary,” the agency said.
It is noted that Kachka also announced a possible ban on the import of Polish onions and apples.
