In a video conference with the participants in the Three Seas summit meeting in Bucharest Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called for ending all restrictions on Ukrainian grain supplies. "In the end, this is a brutal aggression against everyone, including Europeans. The consequences are felt everywhere. Ukraine is against further restrictions on the export of our grain, because we need these products to be exported, because we need funds," said the Ukrainian leader.
He turned to the leaders of Bulgaria, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, saying that "any restrictions on Ukrainian exports only add to the suffering and destruction caused by Russian aggression".
Zelenskyy said that "the foundation of the European Economic Union is free trade and non-interference in free competition".
He said that Ukraine is thankful for the support it gets and said that this is a common front for the common freedom and the common European future.
The Ukrainian President told the Three Seas leaders about a new Russian attack on a market in the town of Kostyantynivka some 30 km from the frontline., which killed at least 16 people.
