The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine introduced a ban on buckwheat export until July 1, 2020. The relevant decision was made at an extraordinary meeting of the Government.

Export ban on buckwheat groats is a temporary measure required to protect the domestic market. The Economy Ministry noted that Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan temporarily ceased buckwheat exports.

"Currently the situation in the Ukrainian market is stable. The Government maintains a dialogue with both manufacturers and retailers. Ukraine will negotiate with the key producing countries regarding the removal of bans to ensure international food security and restore normal conditions of international trade," the ministry said.

The corresponding amendments, the ministry adds, have been introduced in Annex 1 to Resolution No. 1109 "Quotas for goods, the export of which is subject to licensing in 2020".

Previously reported that the Ministry for Development of Economy, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine and grain traders signed a document which provides for a limit of wheat export from Ukraine in 2019/20, i.e. until June 30, 2020, at 20.2 mln t.
