Ukraine to export up to 22 million tons of grain

To date, Ukraine exported about 1.2 million tons of wheat, agrarian policy and food minister of Ukraine Mykola Prysiazhniuk said in the interview with Bloomberg international news agency during the trip to the U.S.
The minister predicted that the sale of wheat on the world market will slow down in November, when new crop corn supplies will start, which export is expected to reach more than 12 million tons.
He also added that in the 2012/2013 marketing year, Ukraine does not need to impose restrictions on the wheat export.
Prysiazhniuk said that Ukraine will remain a stable partner on the grain market.
According to him, this year Ukraine harvested about 15.5 million tons of wheat, its projected exports will be no more than 5 million tons. Thus Ukraine will be able to ensure its own food security.
The minister recalled that only in the current marketing year, Ukraine plans to export up to 22 million tons of grain.

Yefremov promises not to adopt defamation law without advising people

MP from the Party of Regions faction Oleksandr Yefremov expressed confidence that the bill to stiffen the penalties for infringement of the honor, dignity and business reputation should be subject to public debate before the second reading.
As the press-service of the Party of Regions informs, he said this during a meeting with members of the pre-electoral mission of the Special Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to monitor the parliamentary election in Ukraine October 28, 2012, commenting on adoption in the first reading of the draft law on amendments to the Criminal Code and the Code of Criminal Procedure of Ukraine on increasing responsibility for the attack on the honor, dignity and business reputation.
“I do not know if it this law is or is not passed. When I was talking to reporters, I suggested, let’s work together to make this document. In my opinion, it is not directed against journalists. It seeks for somehow organizing life in the state,” Yefremov said.
“When I was talking to reporters, I asked the question, what country we live in, they told me: in the country of continuous slander. So I doubt very much that this law will be adopted before the election. But one thing is certainly – if it will be accepted, it will be in the format, which suits the majority of our citizens,” Yefremov assured.
