Ukraine to export 120,000 tons of bread wheat to Georgia

Ukraine is ready to export 120,000 tonnes of bread wheat to Georgia, as requested by that country, Agriculture Minister Mykola Prysiazhniuk said.

According to him, the Georgian government addressed Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov with such a request.

“The government of Georgia has asked Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov to sell it 120,000 tonnes of bread wheat. Of course we will meet this request,” he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Tuesday.

Prysiazhniuk said that Ukraine would fulfill this order and will “try to fulfill those orders which come from our neighbors and other countries at state level”.

The minister stressed that he is still against introducing quotas on grain exports. Though the grain harvest has shrunk by six million tonnes, the 40.5 million tonnes of grain that Ukraine expects to harvest this year will fully cover domestic needs and still allow the export of grain.

Prysiazhniuk also said that since the start of this marketing year Ukraine has already exported around two million tonnes of grain.
