Romania intends to follow the example of these states, the statement added.AnalysisFood Bans and Possible Grain Deal Suspension to Curb Ukraine’s Profits19 April, 14:48 GMTThe EU has been engaged in various initiatives to help Ukraine export its agricultural goods amid the conflict in the country, which caused disruptions in supply chains and raised concerns about a large-scale food crisis.
