According to the diplomat, the business involved in the agricultural sector of Ukraine seeks not to send products to countries in need, but to flood the markets of Central Europe with it. This, in turn, harms local farmers.
According to Szijjarto, at the end of 2022, the Hungarian government allocated about €3.5 million for the supply of 10 thousand tons of grain from Ukraine to Sudan.
"Although this money was allocated by Hungarian taxpayers last year, not only not a single ton, but not a single gram of grain was sent to Sudan as part of the Grain from Ukraine program," TASS quoted him as saying.
At the same time, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland maintained a ban on the import of grain and other agricultural products from Ukraine, despite the fact that the European Commission lifted the corresponding embargo.
